hosted by Roswitha
The Sapphires Women's Night is hosted by Roswitha Wetschka (teacher at her London Dance Studio and at Ralf Schiller's former Kensington Dance Studio) and is organised together with a well known team of women from the same-sex dance scene (Carley, Chris, Erika, Gaynor, Jay, Laury, Mary, Ngozi, Norma, Penny, Tori and Yvonne) in close cooperation with Bishopsgate Institute.
Classes and social
Learn Latin and Ballroom dances with Roswitha and her team, Carley, Penny and Tori, meet others and have fun. No partner needed. Our dance evening is in a friendly, relaxed and inclusive atmosphere and open to all women. We play Ballroom and Latin music including Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive, Bachata, Waltz, Quickstep, Tango and more, with occasional Line dances or Sequence dances, which are rather easy to follow and for everyone to join in.
We would like to encourage Advanced and Intermediate dancers to participate in the Beginners/ Improvers class to help the beginners, make new dancers feel welcome and practise and improve their own dancing.
