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 usually six dancing nights - if flights allow then 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 2017 it was planned that we would be in Kinross with Marian Anderson & her Band, but this has been cancelled due to lack of support.
RSCDS Classes At Best Western Rockingham Forest, in conjunction with Peterborough & District RSCDS Branch, we offered an Afternoon School (Intermediate and above) taught by Gill Mouncer from Leicester. This was a most enjoyable instructive afternoon, covering many general points and several formations in detail, including the Knot and quick-time Poussette. On the ‘CD holiday’ in March 2017 (in Sorrento) we had an optional 5-mornings Beginners’ School, with focussed tuition from Alan Cottle (RSCDS Bristol). This offered a unique opportunity for new and progressing dancers to learn all the basic elements in concentrated sessions whilst enjoying a relaxing holiday in good company in sunny southern Europe! They all made excellent progress and demonstrated a new dance to everyone at the final night ceilidh.
