For 6 years I have been involved in the organisation of ‘Dancing Holidays’ in Portugal, Spain & Italy at the end of February (dancing to CDs) and in March with Marian Anderson & her Band providing the music.
Dancing Holidays
These holidays follow a similar pattern: Members book their own flights to the nominated airport and transfers will then be arranged for you Hotel rooms are on a per night basis so longer (or shorter) stays can be booked as required - hotels are 4* rated with buffet restaurants (wine & water included with the evening meal) and large ballrooms There are six dancing nights - the first night on both holidays will be a short programme (7-9 dances) to CDs as a 'Welcome & Get-to-know-you'. On both holidays there will be one evening, mid week, with no dancing 2 excursions (approx 7 hours) will be offered, and details of these will be available in the autumn for pre-booking Dance programmes are issued 3 or 4 months in advance and walk-through sessions will be offered each day Payments: After paying an initial deposit, 3 stage payments will be required (preferably by bank transfer rather than cheque). As the exchange rate fluctuates then the prices have been set cautiously but over-payments will be refunded if we are fortunate enough to get consistently favourable rates.

Details of some of the other dancing holidays offered in Europe can be found on the website of the Telheiras SCD Group (Lisbon).
September in the UK In   2018   we   were   at   The   Park   Hotel,   Tynemouth   for   4   nights   dancing   to   Marian   Anderson   &   her   Band, with a concert evening mid-week with Leonard Brown supported by Malcolm Ross and Alex Hodgson. This   was   very   successful   and   much   enjoyed   by   resident   guests   and   local   dancers   alike,   but   was   not   as well   supported   as   it   needed   to   be   to   make   it   thrive   financially!   For   this   reason,   coupled   with   difficulties getting   a   suitable   hotel   for   dates   which   fit   in   with   the   Band   and   others,   there   was   no   September   holiday   in 2019,     but     Langstone    Cliff    Hotel    in    Dawlish    Warren     was     booked     for     five     nights     from Sunday   13th   –   Friday   18th   September   2020 .   Whilst   this   holiday   was   unable   to   happen   entirely   as   planned, 31 guests did attend and there was some socially-distanced dancing to recorded music. Everyone   liked   the   hotel   and   exploring   this   area   of   Devon,   and   in   fact   virtually   all   of   them   have rebooked   for   2021!   The   hotel   are   offering   excellent   terms   should   guests   choose   to   cancel   even   if   the   hotel is still open. 2021 Sunday 19 th  - 24 th  September 4 nights dancing to Marian & her Band
