Instagram…I can see clearly now…

You’ll be glad to know that Antony finally got around to having his murky brown Learn To Dance car washed and waxed…to discover it’s actually white!

Apologies to those students who also have white cars that now feel the need to schedule in an additional car wash session 😂

October Dance Break Provisional Dates

Those who regularly attend our October Bournemouth Dance Break know that unfortunately the hotel fell below expected standards over the last few years.

As such we began the hunt for a new location for our October dance weekend. This year will be Quickstep & Jive with a ‘Guys & Molls’ theme to the Saturday night.

Next weekend we will be going to view a hotel we haven’t seen before, still in Bournemouth. However if this meets with our requirements their availability doesn’t match our usual weekend this year.

Therefore please provisionally also pencil in 18th-20th October and we hope to be able to confirm within the next few weeks.

Vienna Dance Weekend 2025

At the moment we have a provisional plan to go from Thursday 13th-Sunday 16th February 2025.

More details to follow when we have them but for now we are looking for expressions of interest.
