A dance class for older adults with a passion to learn. Sessions focus on contemporary technique as well as experimenting with the dancers' own creativity.

Regular members will know that Retrospectif usually consists of two parts, Class and Company (one hour per part). At this time, as we build back up to our regular programme, we are only running one session a week for an hour, which will involve a mix of technique and creativity.

Pre-half term classes are available to buy ‘pay as you go’, so you can check out the class without commitment. Classes after half term from 3rd November will be charged as a bulk six-week price. Please note, the first session on Tuesday 6th October will be an online session, which you can complete from home.

* All ticket prices are inclusive of a £1 restoration levy

Booking and class sizes: All classes must be pre-booked, as keeping everyone safe whilst having fun is our utmost priority. Our class sizes are carefully monitored to ensure safe social distancing.

We do require a minimum number in each class for it to be viable to run. In the event that there are not enough bookings for your class to go ahead we will contact you as early as possible and organise a full refund.

On arrival: Please arrive five minutes before your class time and wait at the garden stage (the area to the side of the theatre nearest to Leigh Road Recreation Grounds). There are currently no indoor public waiting areas for classes.

Face masks / coverings:Face coverings are required at all times when moving through our buildings and for some activity. Your class tutor will advise when masks can be removed.

Changing: Unfortunately we are unable to offer changing facilities whilst the building is set-up for social distancing. Please arrive ready for your class in appropriate clothing.

What to wear and bring with you: Please wear comfortable clothing  that you can move in.

Please bring your own water bottle filled for the class, as our water fountains will not be in use.

Keeping safe & social around the building: Please use the hand sanitiser stations provided. You may be in a different room than you are used to, so we'd like to remind you to maintain a 2m distance from both classmates and staff and to follow the social distancing guidelines marked on the floor. You will be given instructions for leaving via the garden stage following your class. All our spaces will be thoroughly cleaned.

Toilets: Your instructor will let you know which toilets you should use – please bear in mind capacities will be limited at any one time.
