Throughout the land dancers are preparing for a huge August bank holiday weekend of fun. But dancers like us know that throughout the Autumn and into the festive season there are lessons and socials to enjoy.

UKDance.Events collects information, via www.A2Z.events about classes, courses, parties, workshops, band nights, weekenders and every activity, so that you can find them on www.ukdance.event or voa the Global Dance Card app.

The selection is so wide, from ballroom to swing, salsa, breakdance and even ballet, inclusive for beginners through to dance gurus.

Our newsletter simply picks out a few of the listings so that you can see the variety that may be in your area.  Go asearching and dance yourself fit.


As a member, I suspect you already know the joy of dance, the mental and physical benefits, the chance to meet a wide variety of people, the thrill of honing a new skill, so why not introduce a friend, colleague or family member?


Look out for the special offers that are made by the activity hosts for you.
Also check out the early bird specials dotted around the site that really mean you could dance more often on the same budget.  


Just a few of the lessons and events you can find on site now:
Lets start with a free one:

On Sunday 11th August, next to the bandstand in Hyde Park  to enjoy Here to Havana live.  Obviously we'll be hoping for fine weather for an al fresco dance with Londoners and visitors.

Hyde Park live salsa band 11th August

Dance to great 60s music all night long at Hampton MWB Club on Wednesday with live band, The 60s AllStars, featuring Alan Lovell, John Dee and Mick Avory.

Bar Salsa Soho intensive beginners course

Every Saturday you can claim £5 off the absolute beginners salsa intensive workshop at Bar Salsa in Soho with Streetbeat, who have taught salsa for over 20 years.

For Saturday 17th, perhaps the JiveTango August Party with DJ John Miller in Bookham is your sort of activity?

Paddington salsa in a day  Paddington bachata in a day

The Practica at Tango Amistoso happens every Saturday 7 pm to 10:30 pm in Islington.


The first week of each month brings the start of monthly courses in many forms of dance an so many parts of the country that it'd be silly for us to include each in the newsletter. Our suggestion is to pop onto the site for best information locally.


I haven't mentioned the 100s of the weekly lessons on site up and down the country as August is traditionally holiday time and many of the classes are held in schools that shut for several weeks.

My suggestion is to check with your local teachers and venues before waltzing up.

If your class is on and some of the students are away, then it is a great chance to get even more personalised tuition. 


The Luxury Latin Dance and Fitness Retreat in France on the Cote d'Azur is on 10-13th October.
London Salsa members can claim the early bird discount by quoting GDC.

It is delivered in a stunning location with outstanding facilities.
Some of the most charismatic and talented teachers from our scene, who'll not only give those more personalised lessons but are sure to socialise and dance with you throughout the weekend.

Chateau Lou Casteou's Let's Salsa Retreat combines all the rhythm and sparkle of Strictly Come Dancing with good exercise, great company and delicious food.

Happy dancing all,

Leigh and the UKDance.Events Team
