It’s time to celebrate Soul at Forest!

Sally Molloy - world Northern Soul Dance Champion - will be hosting dance workshops, followed by an evening of Northern Soul, funk and Motown music, brought to you by the Retro Grooves vinyl DJs and live music from RJ’s Soul Coaster. 

What can you expect? A safe space to let yourself go, feel the beat and move your feet! Providing the tools to help build your personal style. Most importantly we unlock the ability to get lost in music! Northern Soul is ALWAYS improvised NEVER choreographed. We won’t be learning routines or sequences. I’ll be guiding you with personalised tips to help with basic steps and transitions which evolve into the confidence you need to - LET GO. We might throw a few tricks in there too. The rest is between you and that one of a kind music that is - NORTHERN SOUL. 

Sally Molloy 

World Northern Soul Dance Champion SALLY MOLLOY Crowned the World Northern Soul Dance Champion at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom in 2022 Sally has quickly become the face of Northern Soul Dance.

When Sally first got introduced to Northern Soul Music when she was 19 she often found her self visiting her local all nighter in Stoke -On-Trent - The Kings Hall. Thats where she got inspired to dance after watching the original Wigan Casino Dancers take to the floor and listening to the resident DJ’s play obscure records. After graduating from EPA with her Diploma in Musical Theatre she teamed up with her fellow entertainer friend and formed a Northern Soul performance duo. They have dominated the online Northern soul outreach with half a million hits in total on various social media platforms.
