About Us

What we do

Dance with us Suffolk started in 2016 by Phil & Jacqui to hold dance events at The Delphi Centre Sudbury to raise money for charity. Our love of music from the 1940's and the Big Band sound was our reason for our first dance which featured "Swing Machine" big band from Ipswich, this was a mid summer event and we raised funds for "Upbeat" the Heart Support Charity for West Suffolk.

What a Fantastic Night

A wonderful evening of music from "Swing Machine" big band, and interval music from "Mayfair Music"

The ballroom sparkled with glittering lights and fantastic mask backdrop behind the band.

The evening was a brilliant success for our chosen charity "UPBEAT" a total of £700 raised, a big thankyou to all who attended our Masquerade. The memorable photographs with the staircase backdrop was well received. The number of different masks people were wearing was also impressive. It was brilliant to see The Delphi Centre at its best and full with people from all over East Anglia enjoying themselves. If it was your first visit to The Delphi Centre please pass on your thoughts to your friends.

Our next big event will be the 1940's Vintage Revival day followed by The Delphi Strut with the Glenn Hurst Band on Saturday 22nd June 2019. The Dance in the evening will be for our Charity "UPBEAT" and the revival day shared between funds for The Delphi refurbishment and "UPBEAT" so put the date in your diaries.

Mid Summer Big Band dances

  

“Dance With Us Suffolk” in association with The Delphi Tea Dance brought “Swing Machine” a 17 piece big band who play at venues across East Anglia to The Delphi Centre Sudbury to play at the Mid-Summer Big Band Dance on Saturday 24th June 2017, commencing at 7.30pm. With their 1930’s, 1940’s & 1950’s sound for Swing, Ballroom and Latin music this was a night not to be missed. The Delphi Centre has been through difficult times over the last few years, but with interest in all forms of dancing becoming popular again especially all things vintage, a number of events are being organised by different groups. The Swing Machine played classics from Glenn Miller, Stan Getz, Ella Fitzgerald, Ted Heath and songs from Frank Sinatra and other big names. The dancing was great on the Delphi’s large sprung dance floor.

Money raised for "Upbeat" West Suffolk Heart Support

£700 was raised
