If you’re looking for a way to waltz your partner into romance and fitness, JJs Dance Club for lesbians is a new place for women to learn in a friendly and GLBT-friendly environment.

Launched in February, JJs’ popularity is already skyrocketing, with up to 40 women taking part in Jan Blanch’s Latin and ballroom classes.

Club Secretary Maree O’Halloran said, This is a club run by women for women.

We want to create a safe and secure environment where women can come and experience the excitement and exhilaration of dancing, she said.

We want women to feel very comfortable about their bodies and have a totally positive experience when they come to a class.

We cater for almost anyone, from absolute beginners to people who have 10 years or more experience.

Run as a specifically lesbian-friendly club, JJs also holds mixed social dances with gay men and lesbian women. The next such event is scheduled for 12 April at Club Five Dock. Anyone from the GLBT community is invited to join in the fun, irrespective of whether they are a member of the club or have any prior dance experience.

JJs Dance Club can be contacted by emailing Maree on jjsdance2@hotmail.com. Next social dance, 12 April, Club Five Dock, 66 Great North Rd, Five Dock.
