For the last 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.
