Get Active - Get Moving - Get Dancing
Come to a Barn Dance on Wednesday evenings in Essex at Southend's barn dance club, the Grand Ceilidh Club,
Everyone from aged 11 upwards is welcome at our friendly club, dancing to live music, with a different band every week.
Come with a partner or come on your own - there'll always be someone to dance with.
Never been to a barn dance before? All our dances are 'called' by a professional who will tell you exactly what to do.
What should you wear for a barn dance? Well, there's no special costume. We don't wear cowboy hats, just ordinary clothes but high heels are best avoided.
We meet from 8.15pm every Wednesday at the Royal Naval Association in East Street, Southend.

Dancing is more than a social activity - this is what Sport England says: Participating in sport can reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, obesity, some cancers, strokes, osteoporosis - the health benefits are well known and numerous. For example, statistics show that an active lifestyle can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by 50 per cent. …
getting involved in physical activity is FUN… honestly!
Not everyone will want to be out on a muddy rugby pitch but that's not your only option…
…think about walking that extra mile, cycling, dance, yoga, tennis… anything that is fun and active… it all counts. And don't be a stranger… Don't forget exercising with friends is twice as much fun.
