Sunday Workshop Changes

Due to declining numbers in our Sunday workshops we have made the decision to cancel Sunday Improver, Intermediate and Advanced workshops with immediate effect.

Sunday Sequence & Social workshops will continue for the moment.

For the next few weeks both Antony & Denise will open up additional private lesson availability whilst we review what will take place on Sundays.

Read more and let us know what you’d like us to replace them with….

Changes to Social Event Regularity

As we now host a wide variety of social events over the course of the year we are going to reduce the number of Friday night socials.

Instead of having a monthly Friday social we will only host them every two months, when we don’t have another event that month.

As such our next standard social will be Friday 30th June, with our Halloween social then on Friday 27th October.

Courses cost £45pp for a 6 week course. The courses get extended in 6 week blocks and often run for 18 weeks in total. Read more….

Glastonbury Dance Weekend

We had another great break down in Street near Glastonbury. This year we were teaching Quickstep and had a ‘Charleston’ theme to the Saturday night.

It’s always wonderful that so many of our students take the time to make the effort for these themes.

Remember our next dance break will be Bournemouth in October and you can save £15pp if you book and pay in full before the end of this month! Read more….

‘Silent’ Social for Comic Relief

Back in March we held a Ballroom and Latin American Silent Disco in aid of Comic Relief.

It was a great night and thank you to everyone who attended, or donated if they were unable to make it.

Overall we raised over £600 for Comic Relief, well in excess of our £250 target, and many students asked us when we were going to host the next one! Read more….

Good Friday Afternoon Tea

This year we decided to trial having our Spring afternoon tea on Good Friday, the idea being to allow you to pencil the date in every year.

It was a sell-out event and everyone had a great time.

Our next catered event is the Spring Dinner & Dance, and our next Afternoon Tea will be at Christmas (details soon).

See you soon!
