Most of the class members, and the teacher, are proud to say they are in their 60's and 70's, and now some over 80. We are a happy and friendly bunch who like to take it fairly gently, dancing mainly to easy-listening and country music, some retro in flavour, some brand new!     

   Getting into Black Country Festival mood with our new flags! 

 The dances are a mixture of old and new, many having been choreographed by Jan.

Some of the class have been dancing a long time, some are beginners, and some are lapsed line dancers who have come back into the fold. Whatever your level you are welcome to join us, though please bear in mind that we are are a small class of about 25 people who don't put ourselves under any pressure to learn the latest dances or to prepare ourselves for medals or competitions. We just do it for fun, fitness and friendship.

Check us out HERE doing a little selection of dances at an end of term session recently!

We have lots of laughs in the class and enjoy getting together occasionally for lunch after the class, or outings to shows, especially at times like Christmas, Easter etc.

G.L.D. has been in existence for 12 years now and was originally a fund-raising project for the Grapevine Drop-In Centre which took place in the same building. Now that the Grapevine Centre is no longer in existence, our profits were first donated to Compton Hospice, then Midlands Air Ambulance, Alzheimer's Research, followed by Acorns Hospice, and then the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, the Motor Neurone Disease Association, then The Stroke Association, the Teenage Cancer Trust, then we supported MIND, the mental health charity, and followed by the Good Shepherd Mission Soup Kitchen in Wolverhampton.  In October last year we decided to try to help the growing number of homeless people on our streets by giving to the Salvation Army. Having recently reached £1070 with donations to the Salvation Army, and just now £1040 to the Prostate Cancer Research Centre, our new charity is a local one closeby in Dudley : The White House Cancer Support.
