Fast Fridays

@Ross Street Community Centre, Ross Street, Cambridge CB1 3UZ
(See "getting there", below, for directions and parking information.)

On the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month, we run a practice session focused on fast dancing. These are usually related to Collegiate Shag and Balboa, and will follow the Shall We Dance blocks that are taught on Wednesdays. In months without Collegiate Shag or Balboa being taught, these sessions may be used to add a taster class or as a full social.

  • 7:30 - 9:00 pm: Guided practice, led by a member of the community to explore a topic/topics they are interested in practising, possibly following the class material.

  • 9:00 - 10:00 pm: social dance.


A​ practice session costs £6 to attend, and a special evening costs £8. Pay on the door with card or contactless payment. Access to dance passes can be used if you would otherwise not be able to afford to attend.



Dates have been set below:

  • 10th May - Balboa

  • 24th May - Balboa

  • 14th June - Special edition, to be confirmed

  • 28th June - Special edition, to be confirmed

We have WhatsApp groups relating to Collegiate Shag and Balboa, please contact us to be added to these.
