Chance to dance is back with vengeance all across Sheffield city centre on Saturday the 19th July, between 11am and 4:30pm. There was no chance to dance in Sheffield in 2012 due to lack of funds and it restarted last year, but the program wasn’t as large as previous events. This year the chance to dance program is back up to its normal standards.
Sheffield Star say the event has been cancelled due to the weather, lack of clear information on chance to dance web site.

” I am looking for a dance partner around the 50 age, who is looking to learn ballroom dancing and the Argentinian Tango, please get in contact if you are interested. I have been ballroom dancing for over 10 years, but am willing to start from the beginning with the right partner. I would like to focus more on the Latin American side of ballroom dancing and need an athletic partner.”
All the best Tim
