Strictly fun as Weald Heights hosts vintage tea dance

Home news

Residents at Weald Heights were joined by the community for a cha-cha-filled afternoon of ballroom dancing. 

The team at Weald Heights on Bourchier Close welcomed local people for an afternoon of tea, cake and dancing.

Chevening Financial supported the event and arranged for a professional ballroom teacher to come into the home to teach a ballroom masterclass. Residents and visitors took on a mixture of Latin and ballroom styles including classic steps such as the cha-cha, waltz and quick step.

Maria Covington, home manager said: “The vintage tea dance was a huge success. Many residents enjoyed dancing in their younger years, so it was a great reminiscence activity, as well as a lot of fun!

“Since opening earlier this year, we are always looking for ways we can build strong relationships with the people of Sevenoaks, so it was a pleasure to have visitors join us for the ballroom masterclass. We’re hoping to host more events like this as Weald Heights continues to establish itself in the local community.”
