Ballroom in the Tower

Keighley's first ballroom is the latest feature to be added at Dalton Mills, thanks to iour newest Clock Tower tenant.


AW School of Dance, an established dancing school that's been running for over eight years, moved into the mill in on September 1st.


Andrea Wortley, who owns the business, offers dancing for all ages from baby ballroom for pre-schoolers to first dances for wedding couples, as well as a range of popular dance classes for children and adults.


Andrea has transformed the second floor of the mill's clock tower into a dazzling ballroom, complete with brand new flooring and a glitterball.


Andrea, a qualified teacher and examiner with the UKA and IDTA, moved the school from Silsden to Keighley because she thought the Grade II* listed former textile mill would make the perfect backdrop for ballroom.


She says: "'Having my own ballroom is something I have dreamed of for many years. The space within Dalton Mills seemed perfect, and it's very exciting to see it all come together and be a part of the renovation of the building.
