Christmas Ball 2019 at Bishopsgate Institute

We had a blast at our annual Christmas Ball in 2019! The evening kicked off with a free taster class with our lovely teaching duo Kathleen Murphy and Nancy Hitzig. We had amazing live music for our social dancers from the wonderful Palace Avenue Trio and our vintage DJs. We saw stellar performances from Air Patrol, the Brat Pack and Shag Junction students. As is tradition, we also revealed our Legend of the Year 2019 Рthe amazing Ochryn Oswal!!! Towards the end of the evening the dance floor broke into a crazy jam circle. Check out some awesome photos below for a few glimpses of our shiny happy dancers : )
