A TEA dance in Doncaster’s newest public square was a toe-tapping triumph.

It was a sunny Sunday afternoon for the hundreds of dance lovers who dusted off their dancing shoes to twirl their way around the Sir Nigel Gresley Square.

Many donned 1940s outfits, as they got into the swing of the music at one of the first major events to take place on the square, named by Free Press readers, since its grand opening in June.

Members of the Ragroof Theatre led the way as dancers young and old found their feet at the free event, supported by Doncaster Council.

The dance was part of Big Dance Week and was one of a series of dance-themed events taking place across the country. The grand finale of Big Dance Week is in London’s Trafalgar Square today.
