Thank you so much to everyone that has sent us photos and videos from Dawlish - I'm still trying to gather them all to upload to a gallery (I need a new laptop!). In the meantime, we did manage to find a spare half hour between lessons to video a few 1920s themed dances for you. Those who came to Dawlish will recognise the Twenties Rag, a Charleston sequence dance, that we taught during one of the evening dances. A very very easy and fun novelty dance that is perfectly timed for the current 1920s revival. The link to the Walkthrough can be found further down this page.
Bookings are now coming in for our Lake District Luxury break in Bassenthwaite - at the 4 star Castle Inn Hotel in November. If you would like to join us for evening dances, workshops and local walks then please contact us to reserve your place (£50 per person deposit). Click here to see our PROMOTIONAL VIDEO.
From time to time we send out an EMAIL NEWSLETTER that contains links to the most recent uploads and playlists and includes details of all our upcoming events and classes. If you would like to receive this newsletter please email us and we will add you to the list. If you would decide you would no longer like to receive it, then simply click the UNSUBSCRIBE button at the bottom of the newsletter and you will automatically be removed from the mailing list. We will hopefully be able to add a SUBSCRIBE button on this website in the near future!
