The Dancing Club

The Dancing Club

Details

An empty ballroom is brought to life as tales of dancing and music across generations wake up the dance teachers

Written and directed by Caroline Jester

Frank and Wynn got a town dancing after the war and kept people moving through the explosion of rock and roll, northern soul and disco. A space to express yourself. You could learn the waltz one night and see Marc Bolan and Captain Beefheart the next. Everyone is welcome as dreams are made and refuge found. It’s time to learn a new dance and you’re all welcome to try a few steps.

The Dancing Club has been written following interviews with over 100 residents of Kidderminster.
