"Dancing with Catherine is the highlight of my week, and I have just finished my third term. Catherine and her team of helpers are kind, fun and friendly. The dancing is taught professionally and although at times one panics that it will never sink into the brain or to the feet...it does happen. Suddenly you are 'doing it' !!!. Have a go...it  ticks all the boxes, for old and young, male or female, single or partners."
