In connection with our Northern Lights Session featuring Latin music by Los Dramaticos on Thursday 17 June, 8pm, we are running a dancing together class where you can learn how to dance with a partner to enjoy the virtual concert!

Husband and wife dance partners, Tonya Sheina Batts and Steve Batts of @echoechodance will give you some simple tips and pointers to help you have fun moving together. You can have a go with a dance partner in your home or bubble. If you don't have a dance partner, don't worry, you can still join in and learn some tips to enjoy dancing solo to the concert.

Watch and learn from the comfort of your own home and get ready for a great evening of Latin music and movement!
