If  you are not able to attend  your training session, please can you give as much notice a possible.  

We need at least  48 hrs. notice to cancel, or to change the hall hire at Woodlands Road.  When fewer skaters are attending we could cut the time down.

Please can I remind you to give as much notice as



possible if you are not attending lessons. This would be appreciated as the



cost of lessons is based on the number of skaters we expect to attend. 



Sometimes there are so few skaters,  we could have cut the time down a bit



so we don’t make such a big loss on hall hire.

  • Club History

    We are very proud of our Club which has flourished in the Medway Towns since 1949. The Club at first met in the Casino in Rochester and the building echoed to the sound of the wooden wheels of the roller dance skates as they clattered around the hall.  The synthetic wheels on modern roller dance skates make very little noise.
