About Us

Quicksilver is a group of keen, mature and experienced dancers who are determined to ignore our "sell-by" date and keep on performing. (The age range of our dancers at the moment is mid-40s to mid-70s). Those years of training we all had are still in there, somewhere, and the love of expressing ourselves through music and dance goes on and on. If you are a likeminded and able bodied dancer of an older persuasion, be encouraged!

Rehearsal: The main commitment is the weekly rehearsal at Ripley Village Hall (see below) on Friday mornings from 11:30-13:00. Sometimes we need to add an extra call during the week, often on a Wednesday morning, for solos or duets. We aim to create and polish a repertoire of dances we can present at various community or charity arts events as and when bookings come in.

Class: Some members attend Angela's Friday Adult Ballet Class from 10:00-11:15, also at RVH. This is mainly, but not exclusively, for ballet teachers. Others already take their own regular dance classes elsewhere.

To join our merry band do please contact us. As we have no other funding source, the dancers pay a small subscription for administration and hire costs etc. and provide their own simple costumes.

Even if you are not an active dancer, you can still be part of our group as a "Friend". These are wonderful people who help out with making costumes, transport, sound, and so on. They also pay a small subscription. If you would like to know more, please contact us.

We can perform at dance and arts festivals, entertain at community events, care and residential homes etc. in Surrey, London and the Southern Counties.

We are also happy to do dance workshops for older beginners.
