Continuing its year of 150th anniversary celebrations, St Pancras International has invited sell-out London-based club night, Haven’t Stopped Dancing Yet, to get visitors jumping and jiving through the ages in a series of exclusive themed dance classes held under the station’s iconic roof.
Fun for dancers of all levels – the ticketed classes, led by Haven’t Stopped Dancing Yet! instructors and inspired by a different era each week, will kick off with a station inspired ‘Soul Train 70s’ session on Thursday 12th July. Showing visitors how to sashay in style, instructors and dancers will be encouraged to don their most impressive outfits, from flapper dresses to flares, to match each class’ theme.
Available to book now via Eventbrite for only £10 pp per session, attendees will spend an hour learning some of history’s most famous moves before kicking off their dancing shoes to relax and enjoy a complimentary glass of Champagne (or soft drink) at Searcy’s Champagne Bar, situated on the St Pancras International Grand Terrace.
The retro dance classes are the latest treat for visitors to St Pancras International as the station celebrates its 150th birthday. Known for its unique music, arts and culture experiences – from the famous station pianos, played by stars including Elton John and John Legend, to exclusive performances from West End shows – the classes celebrate the iconic London destination’s connection to music.
Wendy Spinks, Commercial Director at HS1 Ltd (owners of St Pancras International): “These fantastic dance classes form part of our 150thanniversary celebrations at the station, as we mark the occasion with a series of events, exhibitions and installations that bring history to life under our iconic roof.
“St Pancras International has been keeping people moving for 150 years, and now we’ll be getting everyone boogying too! We can’t wait to see our visitors joining in as we bring some of history’s greatest music to life this summer.”
Whilst at the station visitors can also enjoy the free-to-play jukebox which has seen 70s hits from The Beatles, David Bowie and Bob Marley topping the most played list since it was launched last year.
Nikki Spencer, founder of Haven’t Stopped Dancing Yet says: “Dancing really lifts the spirits and gives busy Londoners an escape away from busy modern life, so when we were invited to put on classes at St Pancras International, we jumped at it. It’s the perfect way to round off a busy day.
“As well as running our sell-out club nights in north and south London, we often take part in summer festivals in parks, but dancing in a railway station is a first for us. We couldn’t miss the chance to dance to Glenn Miller’s Chatanooga Choo Choo in a real railway station, and we always do a dance to Love Train so it's a great fit!”
For those looking to keep the little ones entertained over the summer holidays, there is also a dedicated disco family session on Saturday 21st July for just £15 per family ticket (1 adult + 1 child) including a soft drink.
