DANCE DIARY

All the dance events that we know about in and around our area are as follows. With the present uncertainty over how much the latest variant of Covid-19 is going to affect dance events, at least some of these diary entries should be regarded as provisional, and it may be worth checking with the organisers that an event will run, before attending.
