Learn to dance in one night for FREE! *NOTE NEW VENUE!*
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
7:45pm - 11pm


Learn to dance in one night for FREE!

*PLEASE NOTE THE NEW VENUE BELOW*

Ceroc is partner dancing and has been described as a cross between jive, ballroom, tango and salsa. I find it much easier to learn than Salsa though. As I often go I thought it would be a fun thing to put on for others to try too. Maybe you've thought about trying it, but have been unsure when would be a good time. Well, this is a good time!

After several successful evenings before I've been asked to put it on again. We will meet in the entrance hall. I've put 7.45pm as the start time to allow for people to arrive a little later, but please try and make it before 8pm. If there's a problem say you are with the Meetup group, they should be expecting you!

The actual dancing starts at 8pm. After a brief warm-up there will be a beginner's class for 40 minutes, then ten minutes of free dancing. It's a good chance to dance with someone more experienced too! Then there is a beginner's revision class until 9.30pm. After that there is free dancing, right up to eleven o'clock if you want. Although there will be a chance to chat at various points of the evening, (especially at the beginning) this is more a dancing evening than a social event.

*PLEASE NOTE THE NEW VENUE*

The full address is: St Phillip & James Church, 35 Frome Road, Bath, BA2 2QF

Free street parking is available in side streets near the venue.

Sorry regular dancers, but please note that the free entry is only offered if it is your first time dancing at Ceroc. You are more than welcome to pay and still attend though. However, if you have joined already, and bring a new member from outside Meetup, then you can both get in for free. Please let me know in the comments if you plan to do this.

ABOUT THE COURSE
Exploring What Matters is a secular, science-based course for people who want to learn how to live happily and spread happiness to those around them.
It was created by the Action for Happiness charity to help people tune in to what really matters in life, connect with people around them and find small ways to start taking action.
On the course you will:


Meet with like-minded people to explore what really matters in life and find new ways of looking at things.


Enjoy expert videos, mindfulness exercises and a handbook full of resources to help you break big ideas into manageable chunks.


Take time each week to think of small actions you can take to create happiness for yourself and those around you.


People find it really valuable and often refer to what they learn on the course as life-changing.
-- Click here to see the impact of the course and what people say about it --
Each week is based around a big question:
Week 1: What really matters in life? We'll explore whether a greater focus on happiness and wellbeing might be better for all of us.
Week 2: What actually makes us happy? We'll explore the role of outer circumstances and inner attitudes in our wellbeing.
Week 3: Can we find peace of mind? We'll explore some of the skills and practices that can help us in difficult times.
Week 4: How should we treat others? We'll explore how to treat others and how we can become more compassionate.
Week 5: What makes for great relationships? We'll explore how our relationship to others impacts our own happiness.
Week 6: Can we be happier at work? We'll explore what makes us happy at work and what can we do about it.
Week 7: Can we build happier communities? We'll explore how to create communities that are more caring, connected and happy.
Week 8: How can we create a happier world? We'll explore how to live in a way that contributes to a happier world, not just for ourselves but for others too.

WHO THE COURSE IS FOR
This course is for anyone interested in exploring how to create happiness for themselves or others.
Maybe you’re someone who could do with some new approaches to try out in your own life.

Either way, by coming together with others locally on this course you can find the inspiration and support you need find the actions that work for you.

HOW IT WORKS

You can give as Supporter (£120) or give the Standard (£90) if you are able, otherwise please give whatever donation works for you - even if you can only give £5 right now you’re as welcome as anyone else :)


What are the highlights of the course?
“Sharing and learning from each other allowed us space to grow and taking away action plans each week focused our minds on pro active action.” ~ Jacqueline, London
“More or less everything is a highlight as it is mightily well researched and factual.” ~ Annick, Lindfield
“Being able to believe that I could be brave enough to change my circumstances/life, in order to be happier/make others happier around me.” ~ Michelle, Farnborough
