Cuban dance rhythms take over Acle centre
Acle recreation centre is being brought to life with Cuban dance rhythms today in a non-stop charity fiesta lasting 13 hours.
More than 100 enthusiasts of all abilities are taking part in classes ranging from traditional folkloric Orishas to more modern reggaeton, and the colourful event is due to end in an evening party.
Newcomers to Cuban dance were wooed with a free salsa session at 1pm.
DanceCuban husband and wife partnership Richard and Sharon Banester, who run classes in Wroxham and Norwich as well as Acle, organised the event - their third charity fiesta - to raise money for East Anglia's Children's Hospices.
Richard, who has been teaching Cuban dance with his wife for nine years, declared Cuban dance a great way to keep fit and said it had really taken off in Norfolk.
They were joined by expert dance teachers from as far afield as Scotland and Cuba; the Bridwell Lane hall was colourfully decked out with Cuban flags for the occasion.
