Strictly Come Dancing is back in the news as this year’s line-up of celebrities is announced.
The interest in the show is stepping up and we reckon there are plenty of dance lovers closer to home.
Ballroom dancers, street dancing, tea dances – we have them all in this great series of retro South Tyneside photos.
So whether you were taking your partner for a tea dance at Sutton Hall or strutting some moves at Sea View Primary School, we have it all from years gone by.
