As always we have a number of Christmas Dance events coming up at Learn To Dance this December.
Christmas Party Dance Workshops
In the run-up to Christmas we have two special four week courses to give you options at Christmas Dances and Parties.
For couples we have the Nightclub Two Step, an American partner disco dance that is great for the slow songs. For solo dancers we will be offering a solo disco course. Not necessarily Saturday Night Fever, this is more about how to dance confidently on your own.
The Nightclub Two Step commences on Monday 25th November, and Solo Disco from Thursday 28th November. Both courses cost £25 per person and start at 7pm. Booking can be made online for the courses.
To reserve a space for someone else on our classes or events choose the Full Booking System option from our Booking menu.
Christmas Party and Dance Social
Our Christmas Party and Dance Social takes place on Friday 6th December. The Christmas Party takes place from 7pm-8.30pm and is free for all to attend. There is a welcome drink upon arrival but please bring your own drinks otherwise.
December is also the anniversary of the opening of our Cherry Orchard Dance Studio. We’re celebrating our third year in the studio, so you may have to also put up with a quick speech!
Our Christmas Dance Social then starts from 8.30pm and costs £7 per person. Come along and dance Ballroom and Latin American to a Christmas themed playlist; or just catch up with friends and enjoy the music and dancing.
Dress code is Winter Wonderland (silver/white/gold) appreciated, but as always not compulsory!
You can book on our website. Choose whether you are coming for the whole night, just the party, or just the social dancing.
Strictly Final Pizza Party
Saturday 14th December is scheduled to be the BBC Strictly Come Dancing Final. Each year we host a Strictly Final Party, showing the event on our projector screen for all to enjoy.
Last year we decided it could be fun to have a pizza company preparing freshly made pizzas during the final. It was such a hit that we are repeating the event this year.
Unfortunately last year’s pizza company have retired to start a family. We have therefore engaged another company that come highly recommended – Pizza Pals. They’ll be providing pizzas at a rate of 40mph (margheritas per hour!). There’ll be a couple of topping options as well as garlic bread, salad and sauces.
Exact timings for the final have yet to be released but it’s normally starts around 6.15pm. The final runs straight through without a break until they announce the winner. Doors open at 5.30pm with a welcome drink and pizzas will be served throughout the evening.
The dress code for our Strictly Final Pizza Party is Black Tie or Strictly Sparkle.
Tickets cost £25 per person and you can book on our website.
Christmas Afternoon Tea Dance
Back in May we held our first Vintage Afternoon Tea Dance. A wonderful selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones were provided and everyone got into the spirit of the event.
Our Christmas schedule this year sees us breaking up a Sunday later than usual. We thought it would be nice to have another Afternoon Tea Dance to see us into the Christmas Break.
This Christmas Afternoon Tea Dance will be held on Sunday 22nd December. A full afternoon tea of sandwiches, scone and cakes will be provided, along with plenty of time for dancing. The theme is a Vintage Christmas, but as with all our events dressing up is not compulsory.
Places are going fast for this event so don’t delay if you want to book. Tickets cost £25 per person and can be booked on our events page.
