Ballroom & Latin Dance Events
We organise a range of events throughout the year so that you can enjoy both dancing and socialising.
We also hold medal tests once a year to challenge yourself, if you wish.

DATES FOR 2018
Looking forward to a new year of dance and fun in 2018 with the amazing Blackpool Tower Ballroom being one of our trips away. I have about 12 spare seats on the coaches so if you wish to invite anyone to go with us, please do. They do not have to have tickets to go into the tower if they do not wish, but it is a cheap trip to Blackpool! The cost of the coach is £12 each and tickets to go in are £6.00 each. May I thank one of our pupils for getting us such a good deal on the coaches!
We are also having our summer social in June, trying out a new venue but it does have a bar! Tickets will be on sale for £5.00 each after Easter. I will have to start thinking up some party dances!
Our medal tests will hopefully now be held on September 30th. Plenty of time for you to be confident in your routines!
We are having our two weekends at the Paddocks in October and November. See below for dates. Both weekends are now provisionally booked and I am happy to make a list of reserves. There is a possibility we may have a third weekend if numbers warrant it so I am asking people to let me know asap if they wish to come as I will need to book the extra weekend as soon as possible. If we do have the extra weekend, again you are welcome to ask other people to join us. The cost is £55.00 per person per night, so £110 each for 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast, plus workshops on the Saturday and socials on the Friday and Saturday nights. I’m sure you will agree it is a bargain. I’m not completely sure of the workshops yet but am considering Charlston, Salsa and Rock n Roll.
For those who have not been before, we can arrive any time after 3 pm on the Friday. Dinner is a 3 course meal at 7.00pm. We then have a social until about 11pm. Breakfast is between 8 and 8.30am and we start our workshops about 9.45, breaking for coffee mid morning. We have an hour break for lunch and then return for our final workshop finishing about 3-30pm. Dinner is 6.30 and then another great evening dancing, including dances learnt in the day. Breakfast on Sunday morning and then home, happy but exhausted!
