Dawlish Dancers are a group of ladies aged 55 to 70+ who love to dance. Some were non-dancers in previous lives but they all feel that now is their time and firmly believe that ‘anyone can be a dancer’.
They have a friendly, professional dance teacher who creates the dances using elements of many different dance styles and set to a wide variety of music.
The weekly sessions are a lot of fun and whilst they try to be as good as we can be, you will hear a lot of music and laughter coming from their hall on a Wednesday. Dance keeps your brain active and your body moving.
Why not join them on Wednesday afternoons?
The Manor, Dawlish, 1.45 – 2.45pm.

Dawlish Dancers started as a joint project between Teignbridge Council and Dance in Devon to encourage older people to stay active; it was known as ‘Dance This Way’ . When the project finished and the funding stopped the group became self sufficient and so a committee was set up and funding from the Lottery was obtained.
In 2011 Anna Leatherdale became the teacher for the group, and the orgianl chairman, Jean Green, resigned and Gwen Wheddon was elected.
