We practice each Thursday evening during school tern time between September and mid May from 8pm until 10pm at St Joseph's school, Manor Square, Otley. New dancers and musicians are welcome to join the Belles each September.
From time to time a day is spent working in detail on a single dance. Often the instruction is given by another dance team, in return for which we teach them one of our dances.
We perform throughout the year, however the principal dancing season is from Easter until the end of September. We dance most weekends and one evening during the week - usually Thursday - frequently with another dance team from the surrounding area.
