The current regular hirers have been informed and they will communicate with their clients and customers.  Some are accepting a little bit of disruption and are able to soldier on.  If you are a class member and have heard nothing, please check with your class organiser.

Bhangra/Bollywood Dance Classes

In addition to studying law, Chilworth resident Jasmine Sandhu is proving to be something of an entrepreneur.  Having discovered a passion for dance at a very early age, she has already met success when organising Bhangra/Bollywood Fusion dance classes in Southampton.  Now she is set on repeating that by putting them on at Chilworth Hall, starting on 9th February.

In her own words: “I decided to start my dance business last summer and it’s gone really well – it pulled the Southampton community together, and we feel like a family. I aim to promote equality, diversity, mental wellness as well as physical fitness. Seeing happy faces and knowing how much students enjoy my class is the best feeling – dance is everything to me! It’s especially satisfying when parents tell me how much confidence their children have gained, as I can empathise with that from my own experience.
