Do you want to dance?

DISCO divas and rock and roll champs who feel they may be too old to boogie with the young ones need look no further than a new community venture.

Passionate movers and shakers in Claverham have set up Love2Dance, a new kind of entertainment for over 30s which aims to make life easier for those wishing to enjoy a dance, sensible drinks prices and easy parking.

Mum-of two Rebecca Fawcett and ex-professional dancer Hamish Paterson, of Claverham, have united in their vision to create a regular fun night of dancing for people their age and the first event will take place on November 27.

In the past few weeks the enthusiastic duo have been working to create the ideal venue for the old school night of classic tunes.

Rebecca, of Main Road in Cleeve, said: “The idea behind the launch was to provide an excellent venue for people who love dancing and don’t want to pay silly prices for drinks, can park the car easily and just want to have the kind of fun we used to in our teens.

“We feel there is a real need to provide this type of activity as most people of this age may have children and it’s a shame they don’t get to go out dancing like they used to.

“I am really excited about this as it’s a great community event and we hope to have lots more.”

To help promote the stress free night of fun Love2Dance has recommended a vetted babysitter and taxi companies on its website.

Rebecca, who is an interior designer, has been making silver drapes and large silhouettes of dancers to add to the ambience at the Claverham Village Hall venue in Bishops Road

A DJ has been hired from Bristol and there will also be a large screen playing the music videos.

The Love2Dance website will soon become interactive to allow people to select the top tunes they want to hear at one of the disco nights.

Rebecca added: “There was just nowhere to go to have a really good boogie. But now there is and people don’t have to worry about being laughed at by younger people and there is no stress involved.”

More than 50 tickets, priced �6.50 in advance and �7.50 on the door, have already been sold and the disco night will begin at 7.30pm.
