Enjoy a special time away, in a great hotel, with wonderful facilities and location, location, location!

Dance the Winter Fire                                              23-25 November 2018

In this special weekend, we explore the nature of fire through Gypsy/Roma and Eastern European dances. This is the fire to warm, inspire and transform us as we prepare for winter.  This weekend is currently fully booked. You are welcome to add your name to the waiting list.

 Celebrate the Summer  21-23 June 2019

We dance Greek and seasonal dances to celebrate the summer, the Solstice, the glorious beauty of nature and the expansive feeling that summer gives us. The time of year may afford us some special dancing outdoors and a possible return of our summer Solstice bonfire!!

Dance sessions from Friday teatime to Sunday lunchtime  with free time on Saturday afternoon and live music on Saturday evening from York's circle dance band....which all combine to make a very special and memorable weekend! 

The accommodation is very comfortable. We have exclusive use of the Joseph Rowntree Centre where our dancing space and bedrooms are located. All rooms are en-suite and there is NO extra cost if you would like single occupancy. 

'...yet another inspiring weekend...'  'I so enjoyed the Greek theme, the music and dances...'  'My first weekend, what a treat. Lovely music, dancing and company.'
