Hope you are enjoying the holiday and not eating too much chocolate !

Just to remind you HMJ will be open this week, Wednesday 23 April, as usual.  This will be a free night and you are welcome to introduce any friends, so that they can see what we get up to.

As always there will be a Modern Jive class and we will be re-visiting the Rumba in the Latin class.  Usual refreshments available and normal times apply.

This current series will end for the summer, with a free party night on Wednesday 14 May.  We plan to re-open after the summer break on Wednesday 17 September, with a new weekly series taking us up to Christmas.  Please sign up on the sheet, which is on the reception table, if you are able to support this on a regular basis.  Alternatively you can email us.  New dancers are always welcome.

Thank-you for supporting what has been our most successful series to date.  But if you no longer wish to receive emails from HMJ, send us an email with the message 'UNSUBSCRIBE' and we will remove your details from our contact list.  You will still be able to see what's happening by visiting our website: harthillmodernjive.webs.com.

Best wishes & keeeeeep dancing.

Well done John for completeing the London Marathon on Sunday 13 April 2014 in less than 6 hours - hopefully you will have raised a huge sum of money for your charity after all your efforts - both in training and on the day!

Hi Dancers

Hope to see you at dancing tonight but please be aware that Woodall/Killamarsh Lane is closed and that diversions are in place.  This affects those of you who usually travel to Harthill via Killamarsh from the West.  The closure is due to a collapsed drain under the road which has been the cause of flooding recently.

Regards. Derrek


RESCHEDULED FREE PARTY DANCE - 7.45-10.15 - 19/02/14

Hi Dancers

We were very sorry to have had to cancel the party dance this week, but we think the decision was fully justified when we experienced the deteriorating weather conditions.

We think the cancellation procedures worked very well on the whole. An e-mail was sent out just after 5pm (to those of you on our contact list), it was put on the website as the latest news item and Carol did a lot of phoning round.  Thanks to all who contacted others and passed on news of the cancellation and apologies to anyone who, for any reason, didn't get the message in time.

The good news is that we will still hold the FREE party night next week,Wednesday 19 February (weather permitting!!!), so don't pack away your MASKS and RED stuff just yet.  Hope to see you then.

Finally, just another reminder that admission will be only £3 per session from the next regular HMJ night until further notice.

Thankyou for your continued support & keeeeeeep dancing!

Best wishes

Carol & Derrek

Sadly, tonight's class has been CANCELLED due to the severe weather forecast.

Apologies for the inconvenience.  All being well, normal service will resume next week - Wednesday 19/02/14.

Best wishes

Greetings Dancers


Just to remind you that next Wednesday, 12 February, is our Free Party Night at Harthill Modern Jive & Latin Dance Club.

OK, we know its a couple of days early for Valentines, but you are invited to wear something RED (or BLACK) and maybe a mask (optional).

Usual times apply (7.45pm - 10.15ish). Nibbles & usual soft drinks provided, but please b.y.o. if you prefer something stronger.

All past & present members welcome, as are potential future folk interested in seeing what it's like at HMJ.

We are also pleased to declare the result of the recent poll, where members voted, by a small majority, for a reduction in the admission cost of our regular sessions.

This is a result of excellent attendances recently, so the new admission price will be only £3.00 per session, until further notice.

Thankyou for your continued support.

Thankyou & keeeeeep dancing!

This will be a FREE night where you are invited to wear something red or black and a mask - optional dress code.

Why don't you invite friends and family, who are interested in coming to HMJ, for a free 'taster session'?

There will be the usual free soft drinks but there will also be some light 'nibbles' provided for the tables.
