Vintage tunes on the Isle of Wight

Modern day pop trends come and go, with the likes of Rihanna and Jessie J constantly fighting to gain the top spot for one brief moment of glory, and yet the fashions of ballroom and Latin dancing have never really gone out of fashion.

Kept alive by Fred and Ginger, and later TV shows such as Strictly Come Dancing, the activity is one of the most romantic ways to spend an evening.

If you're on the Isle of Wight for the first day of February and fancy experiencing all the glitz, glamour and fun of it all, why not attend the Vintage Dance Evening at the Amy White Theatre in East Cowes, where you can enjoy great dance music from a past era.

Take to the floor with your partner to participate in ad-hoc lessons in jive, swing, lindy hop and foxtrot, among others. If you need help plucking up the courage, grab a calming beverage from the licensed bar, which also serves tea and coffee for the designated drivers.

If you have no interest in taking to the floor yourself, it is still a joy to come along and watch the couples spinning and turning like tops while soaking up the ambiance of the beautiful and quaint Victorian theatre.

The charge is just £5 for the entire evening and the fun kicks off from 7:30pm on Saturday February 1st, wrapping up at 11:30pm.

Couples are encouraged to come along in the swing-appropriate outfits of the 40s and 50s, although casual wear is also acceptable.

Those who can't attend on February 1st should keep an eye on the Cowes Town Council website as more of these enjoyable evenings are currently in the works.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801681163-ADNFCR
