Over 200 dancers turn out to event

A DANCING event for the over 50s inspired by Strictly Come Dancing attracted over 200 people.

Broxtowe Borough Council’s first-ever ‘Strictly 50’ dance event was a sell out with 210 people taking part. Over 50 people are already on the waiting list for the next event.

A council spokesperson said the interest had been ‘overwhelming’.

Dancers choose their own styles in anything from salsa and Zumba to ballroom and there was a host of prizes up for grabs.

As well as offering competitors the perfect opportunity to exercise, spectators soaked up the atmosphere and enjoyed afternoon tea.

The event took place in Chilwell last Sunday, February 13.
