HILLS N TOES RE-OPENING UPDATE: MONDAY 19 JULY (BORIS PERMITTING!)
*** Updated Saturday, 19 June 2021 - We nearly got there to start our Linedancing for Monday 21 June but alas, we have been put back due to government directives to Monday 19 July. We have to keep to the rules as does The RUSSC. ***
We were established in 1997 (22 years ago last year) and pride ourselves in offering both modern and traditional styles of Line dancing, with more than one qualified instructor.
Whether you're a complete novice, a beginner, an improver, or an intermediate, we look to welcome you to our only venue - Romford United Services Club (the RUSSC) - at any time.
If you're an absolute beginner - or you've not been for a while - you may find it beneficial to join us from 7:00 ~ 7:30 pm on a Monday. This is when we break down the basic steps we use in Line dancing, without any music. It's a unique opportunity to learn these steps at a slower pace.
We probably have the most comfortable venue in the area, as the RUSSC has been recently refurbished. There's a sprung dance floor (kind to your 'heels & toes'), air conditioning in the summer and central heating in the winter.
Our flyers are clickable and open in new windows.
If you've never Line danced before and have preconceptions about it - then the short video below should help dispel the myths!
