Special Annual Events
We have special events to celebrate things like New Years Eve and Valentines day. We also run our own Ballroom Dance Festival.
Because we are dancers ourselves, Carole and I never over sell a holiday. Long before the holiday is advertised, we have decided on the number of rooms we will market based entirely on the size of the floor. Only in the event the room allocation is not sold do we invite local dancers to join us as guests and they must be prebooked to manage the numbers to ensure you always have room to dance… We do not allow walk-ins at any time. If you are interested then please contact us by phone to check availability

Our prices for continental holidays was set at pre-Brexit exchange rates. We have faith in our economy that the exchange rate will have returned to ‘normal’ by the time the holiday is invoiced but if the exchange rate remains challenging, we may need to change our tariff. If in doubt, please contact our office before booking…
“Dear Paul and Carole,
Just a few lines to say how much we enjoyed Calpe and the dance, the venue, company and your music were great.
For our part we did more walking during the daytime than we have ever done on any other holiday. Calpe and the coastal walks were so enticing…” – Tanis and Barry about the break in May 2013.

Excellent Ballroom Facilities
Whenever you join us for a dance break, you can be certain your ballroom dance floor will be spacious, and with a quality finish. All our floors are wooden or laminate ( even our continental ballroom floors – we never use hotels with marble floors) and we give our partner hotels ‘guidance’ on how to look after the floor to keep the finish in tip top ‘dancing’ condition.
Without doubt the most superior ballroom floor we dance on is at the Wessex hotel in Street Somerset. The room used to be used as the hotel restaurant and for the previous forty years, the floor was covered with carpet until the current owners purchased the hotel and had a peek under the carpet to find a beautiful ballroom floor.
A few years ago we showed them how to prepare, varnish and seal the floor and it has been untouched since which leaves possibly the best surface we dance on. Moreover, whilst the floor is not sprung, being under the carpet for so long the floor naturally ‘gives’ underfoot and creates a wonderful non tiring experience.
Similarly, at the Paddocks hotel the ballroom floor has recently been stripped and completely refurbished and again given it has been in situ for thirty years the floor gives naturally and we rate the ‘danceability’ of the floor to be as good as the the Wessex Hotel.
But where ever you dance with us you can be sure we have sourced the largest and best ballroom floors currently available in the Uk for our holidays.
