I have been teaching line dancing at Madeley for three years. Originally the class was for absolute beginners, but the group has progressed to improver level. Line dancing is extremely good for memory, and a gentle way of keeping fit. We dance to all genres of music, including: country, Latin, pop, Irish and hip hop. It is for any age group. The class is held every Tuesday afternoon between 2 and 3pm in the main hall. The cost is £3.50 per lesson and there is no need to pre book.

Meditation is more an experience than something that we do, more a process than an achievement, more an ongoing journey than a destination. It is a way of relaxing, releasing stress and developing our ability to find our inner stillness…we all have it even if we don’t always realise it! This group meets on Tuesdays from 10-11.30am.
