When disco came along, it seemed like the waltz had had its last tango.
But now Sunday afternoon cha cha has overtaken Saturday Night Fever at Hunstanton, where extra tea dances are being put on by West Norfolk council to cope with growing demand among the resort's elderly residents.
Additional monthly tea dances start on April 19, and will run on the third Sunday of every month between 2.30pm and 5pm at the community centre on Avenue Road.
Elizabeth Nockolds, West Norfolk's cabinet member for sports, arts and open spaces, said: "The local residents of Hunstanton have really embraced our weekly tea dances so we are very pleased to be able to offer the extra monthly dance session.

"Dancing is an enjoyable way for people to keep active and make new friends and our regulars really seem to enjoy the relaxed and friendly environment at the community centre. Whether you are a beginner or a professional, with a partner or on your own, come along and learn some new moves to a mixture of music which will transport you back to your youth and keep you young at heart."
The extra tea-dancing session has been arranged to meet demand and is in addition to the weekly sessions held on Thursdays from 2pm to 4.30pm. "There really is something for everyone at our tea-dancing sessions, from the tango and cha cha cha, to the waltz and the foxtrot," Mrs Nockolds said.
