Brighton Fringe: Ragroof Tea Dance

When I arrived the Tea Dance was in full swing, delicious cakes were on offer and of course, tea.

Inside the Spiegeltent, within the famous Spiegel garden, a female singer accompanied by two guitarists, held court as she sang a Spanish song. Then another. This set the tone for the afternoon. The ringside seats were full to capacity and eager feet were itching to get on the dance floor. The rear doors opened in walked a matador in all his splendor, followed by a señorita in a blue polka dot dress, they held everyone's attention as they owned the dance floor.

Once they finished their performance the dance lessons began and people joined them from their seats. The afternoon was touted as a fiesta of pasos and tangos, and it was just that. All this is courtesy of the Ragroof Theatre company and with only a couple of weekends to go, I suggest you pop along, as each Sunday you will find a variety of themes and dance performances for you to get involved in. As for me and my two left feet, you will find me capturing those moves from the sidelines :)
