We made it back again 18th May 2022 – Message from Jane

May 2022 Let’s Bop!

Message from Jane

I cannot believe it!  We got back, after everything that has happened since our last Let’s Bop! on 10th March 2020.  Believe me, there were times during the interim when I wondered if we would EVER get back out on our Let’s Bop! dance floor.  But we did it.  THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to all of you wonderful women who came along tonight  – our first one back – and made it such a special evening for me, and for you of course.  Because it is YOU who all make Let’s Bop! evenings. It meant the world to me, and I cannot express to you all what this evening has meant for me after a difficult 18 months prior.  See you again.  

Much love from Jane Spencer-Rolfe

LET’S BOP! Your regular chance to dance!

For those who have already become a regular part of the Let’s Bop! chance to dance movement in Stowmarket in the past (pre-pandemic), you will know what it’s all about – and we always welcome newcomers, but for those who don’t know – please read on …

Let’s Bop! evenings are simply that – the chance for women to come out, and have a Bop again – getting back out on a dance floor, and having 90 minutes of great tracks so they can get on down, and enjoy moving and grooving to the music on a regular basis. This is NOT a class!  There are NO complicated steps to learn, no bright studio lights, Lycra (well, probably!) or mirrors.  It’s just a sociable gathering of women who love to dance, and meet up with others who feel the same in a friendly and inclusive environment. At a Let’s Bop! event All women are welcome from 18 – 80. Jane, Marguerite, and the rest of the regular gang will hopefully be there, and will welcome you – and dance with you too, of course.  You can pay on the door as you come in and there’s no need to pre-book – we know what it’s like when life gets busy *please note new OTD ticket price.  However we do still offer event tickets at the original £5 event price, when you pre-book and buy your ticket/s in advance.  This ensures you can get a ticket, and helps us regulate our numbers for popular events.

Wear whatever’s comfortable for YOU to dance in – your choice entirely, jeans, trackies, sparkle and sequins – whatever YOU feel like – everything goes at our nights. You turn up, the bar is open – or you can bring some water. There are tables and chairs around the edge – and when you’re ready or hear THAT song you’ll want to  ‘join the party’ bopping with us. That’s it – no expectations. We have disco-style low lighting at our The John Peel Centre Let’s Bop! nights, and a varied mix of music tracks just for you, which Jane creates.

Always a friendly atmosphere, we know ‘girls just wanna have fun’!  And whilst the music is LOUD enough for the dancing, it’s not so loud you can’t have a bit of chat too.  It’s a great way to relax unwind, and actively socialise with your ‘girlfriends’ and it’s simply some ‘me time’ – just for you – to come and let your hair down. It soon gets you reminiscing, and hearing the tracks it will take you back – remembering those good times and nights out on the dance floor!  So, come with a friend, the women from the WI, maybe round up the ‘girls’ from work, or the mums (and grans!) in the playground, and have a bop – get your mojo back with Let’s Bop! Enjoy the nostalgia – it’s great for well-being, and it’s all over at 9 pm, so it needn’t be a late one. … Fun, fitness, and friendship!
