A tea dance or ' thé dansant' (French) is an afternoon or early-evening dance usually held in summer and reputedly has its origins in the French colonization of Morocco and quickly spread to Europe and England. The Esplanade is welcoming the Spring with our own High Tea Dance.Tea dances are particularly appropriate to Devonport as they were historically given by Royal Navy officers aboard ships at various naval stations.

The Esplanade is offering the traditional refreshments and we welcome a small band playing light classical music. The types of dances
performed during tea dances included Waltzes and Tangos.

The Esplanade welcomes guests dressing for the occasion in their favourite era; Edwardian, 1920s, 30s 40s etc. A prize of a Gourmet
Dine and Sleep package for two awaits the winner for the 'best dressed' guest.
