Ryan & Olesia

Ryan and Olesia have so impressed us with their ability to ‘connect’ with all standards of dancers, we have given them seven holidays in our 2013 offering.

Young, but vastly experienced professional ballroom competitors, they regularly finish in the top six couples at the British Championships in November and their knowledge of both ballroom and Latin dance and technique goes without saying.

As a result, they teach on many of our, ‘feature holidays’ which means specific areas of theory are addressed during their sessions… Understanding lead, avoiding other dancers when they cross in front of you, the secret of Viennese waltz, plus specialist weekends enhancing your knowledge of a particular dance…

Ryan tends to start the lectures and they then share responsibility during the sessions, with Olesia very knowledgable about steps for both ladies and gentlemen and Ryan focuses on technique and poise… Our dancers are always surprised how much they have have retained after the weekend and this goes some way to their teaching technique and easy manner.

Ryan and Olesia have been dancing since they were 6 yrs old and they fully deserve their reputation as, ‘lovely teachers’. For Carole and I, we see them come prepared and having thought through every session and we admire the professionalism, integrity and dedication of their teaching and lectures.

Festival Weekend with One Cabaret and Optional Up To 8 Hours Tuition

  • Tuition with Mark & Olga
  • Tuition With Ryan & Olesia

After many years of searching, we have finally found a quality hotel with two daytime teaching ballrooms and a spacious dance floor, that will easily accommodate a hundred plus dancers for evening dancing….

We are therefore reintroducing our successful Ballroom Festival weekends with Mark and Olga Elsbury (now British Professional Ballroom Champions) and Ryan and Olesia Wilson, who will be offering their optional non stop revolving workshops throughout Saturday and Sunday. Each workshop in either skilled/competent or social dancer option will be 60 mins long with 15 mins supervised practice time after each session and the opportunity to video the steps and timing after each session.

Saturday morning Waltz, Afternoon Quickstep, Sunday morningFoxtrot, and Sunday afternoon, Tango. The timings will be such that if you wish to take one set of tuition from each couple on each genre, ( we recall many of you did take that option last time ), you will be able to choose that option.

As always, dancing every evening to the renowned Eden Nights music collection with cabaret on the Saturday night by Britain’s top couple, Mark and Olga Elsbury. The holiday includes dinner, bed and breakfast and can be taken as a two night or a three night stay with dancing also on Sunday night, so you have the option to complete all the tuition on Sunday, and then leave, or stay on for an extra long weekend and a relaxed finale of dancing on the Sunday night.

The Webbington Spa Hotel in Loxton, Somerset is a superior 3star hotel which has an extremely comfortable and relaxed ambience, good food… a beautiful Spa, (included in your package ) and the hotel has plenty of free parking and is easily accessible from several directions including being only 10 mins off the M5.

The previous Festival holidays always sold out so pls book early to reserve your space on what will be a fabulous pre Christmas November weekend for ballroom dancing.
