Tea Trolley Dancing originated with the artist Sally Child and her collection of 52 vintage tea trolleys, each individually named. Dancing with tea trolleys was Sally's way of making the performing arts accessible to everyone - with or without talent. Each tea trolley workshop is run by a guest artist invited by Sally. Together they come up with a theme, moves and music that correspond. The first workshop run by Helen was entitled 'Trolleywood', where moves such as the 'Vera Gish' and 'The Chaplin' where taught to music from the 1930s. Helen has since gone on to become a fully qualified tea trolley instructor, performing with a troupe of tea trolley dancers at the Southbank centre as part of the Goodwood Vintage Festival.
