New Vintage Tea Dance classes are being offered in four local community centres across the city until May.

Dance experts will be on hand to show off new moves to classic tunes from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.

Organisers at Glasgow Life, the body that runs Glasgow City Council's arts and sporting facilities, hope the classes will provide gentle exercise.

And, of course, all dancers will be able to enjoy a cup of tea served in a vintage china cup.

The classes will run until May 2, and the first class is free with a charge of £2 per class after that.

They take place at Tollcross Community Centre on Tuesdays, from 11.30am until 1.30pm and Castlemilk Community Centre on Wednesdays, from 1pm to 3pm.

Classes are also held at St Francis Community Centre from 10am to 12pm and Barmulloch Community Centre, 11.30am until 1.30pm, both on Thursdays.
