Slough residents enjoyed a stomping night of barn dancing last Monday, at a special party night organised by Slough’s Two Left Feet.
The party took place to celebrate Thames Valley Housing’s (TVH) donation of £3,000 from its Community Chest Fund to Two left feet. A live band provided the music as dozens of local people tried out their new dance moves.
Julie Clark, Two Left Feet’s founder, said, “We are committed opening up dance to everyone, but especially those who really want to get dancing but don’t have the confidence. The classes are suitable for people of all backgrounds and all levels of physical ability, including people who have a disability.”
“ The classes aren’t expensive either, as they only cost £2 for each one, so they provide an affordable, fun night out, where the everyone socialises, learns new skills and gets moving.”
John Baldwin, Housing Director’ TVH, said, “Two left feet provide something that embraces everyone, builds confidence and gets people socialising in an environment of support, fun and equality. I can’t think of a better type of project for the Community Chest fund to support”
Two left feet run range of fortnightly dance classes, including belly dancing, Bollywood, Zulu, salsa for eager dancers of all levels of ability.
