Flood warnings in Datchet

Flooded Datchet

Roads in Datchet completely underwater

Anyone that’s been following the news these last couple of days, or even looked outside, will have seen the reports of flooding in and around the Thames.

This is to reassure our students that none of our halls are currently underwater!  However please note that if you normally come through Datchet to get to our classes (for instance if you come off at Jct 5 of the M4), Datchet is completely closed off to traffic due to excessive flooding.

We recommend coming via Slough Jct 6 (up and down the relief road for our Eton venues) or Jct 7 via Dorney.

You can keep abreast of the flood updates via the Environment Agency’s website.

All of our classes are running as normal but please do not put yourself in danger, we’re awesome but we’re not awesome enough to risk your life/property for!

We hope to see you soon and our thoughts go out to our students that are living with this on a daily basis at the moment, especially the couple that sent us this picture of their driveway:

Merengue Beginner Workshop this Sunday in Eton Wick with LearnToDance

Learn To Dance LogoMerengue Beginner Workshop this Sunday in Eton Wick with LearnToDance

Never know what to do on the dance floor at a party, worried at weddings, or planning a Caribbean cruise?  Even if you can’t dance, LearnToDance’s Beginner Merengue Workshop in Eton Wick is just the class for you on Sunday 16th February at the Eton Wick Village Hall, Eton Wick Road, Eton Wick, SL4 6LT.

Our Monthly Beginner Workshops are fun and friendly classes that aim to give you simple routines that you can take away and dance anywhere.  The Merengue is an informal dance with a basic marching action and if you can walk, you can dance the Merengue.  We use a mixture of traditional Merengue music as well as modern pop songs such as ‘Pound the Alarm’ by Nicki Minaj to show just how versatile the dance can be.

Happy DancersJust a few of our most recent comments from students:

  • ‘even as a complete beginner, I was made to feel like a dancer’
  • ‘they make learning to dance such unbelievable fun’
  • ‘great fun, great exercise and lovely people’
  • ‘they are brilliant teachers and very patient’
  • ‘A very friendly place to dance and learn to dance’

And for anyone who’s thinking, ‘But I can’t dance’ or ‘I don’t have anyone to dance with’, there’s no excuse – you don’t have to able to dance and you don’t need a partner! You just have to want to learn to dance and have fun.

So, if you’re ready to take to the floor and Merengue like you’ve never Merengue’d before, all you need to do is be at the Eton Wick Village Hall on Sunday 16th February at 1.30pm where the team from LearnToDance will be waiting to teach you everything you need to know. For more information, you can contact Antony on 07736 272225, email us at info@want-to-dance.co.uk or check out our website at www.want-to-dance.co.uk.

The workshop is £20 per person or £30 for a couple dancing together.  You can book online directly on our website.

Sunday 16th February 1.30pm-3.30pm
