Christmas Break and new Kids Classes

Our kids classes break up for Christmas on Sunday 11th December and return from Sunday 15th January.  We will also be re-introducing our Under 16s classes at 11am on a Sunday in the New Year.

All other classes break up from Monday 19th December and return from Monday 9th January.

If we don’t see you before have a great Christmas and New Year and we look forward to seeing you again in January

Cherry Orchard Dance Studio Launch

Cherry Orchard Dance Studio Launch

Cherry Orchard Dance StudioBuilding work has been pretty much completed and our carpenters are coming in next week to begin laying the floor.  This should be completed by the end of the week and we will then begin the process of moving across our classes and lessons.

Assuming there are no more delays we plan to hold our official launch event on Friday 9th December before our scheduled Winter Wonderland Christmas Social.

The free launch event will be at 7pm and then our Christmas Social will follow at the usual price.

We would love to see you all there but if not we look forward to welcoming you at classes or lessons as they move over there.

The full address will be Cherry Orchard Pavilion, George Pitcher Memorial Ground, Britwell Road, Burnham, SL1 8DL.

[Hopefully] Final Painting Party

Our main hall has been painted, barring touch up work once the builders and carpenters have finished, and we are now looking to paint our smaller ‘Studio 3’ and finish the corridor.

Antony will be down the studio on Saturday 19th November from around midday (possibly earlier) to try and get this all completed and as always we would welcome any assistance anyone is able to offer.

Also if anyone has any experience with putting together kitchen base units that would be really helpful.

Let us know if you can come along, or feel free to just turn up on the day, but please remember parking at weekends does get busier during the football season.

Class Schedule Changes

All of our classes, except our Maidenhead sessions, will be phased into the new studio from the end of this month (subject to the successful completion of works).

The first sessions in the new studio will be our Wednesday private lessons and evening classes from Wednesday 30th November (FitSteps will move over the following week).

From Friday 2nd December all other sessions will then take place at the new studio assuming we haven’t run into any teething problems.

Our timetable will remain as currently scheduled and we will evaluate this as we settle in over the next few months.

Please note that weekends during the morning and early afternoon are very busy for parking during the football season, so you may need to allow more time when coming to classes or workshops as we only have a limited amount of allocated spaces.

No more FitSteps on Thursday evenings

Learn To Dance 2013 SquareDue to declining numbers over the last few months we have come to the decision to end our Thursday evening FitSteps class in Maidenhead.

Our classes on a Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning in Eton Wick will still continue and those that have purchased a package may use them at these classes.

We may resume the classes after the summer if there is enough interest.

Don’t forget this Sunday is our Beginner Samba Workshop in Eton Wick if you fancy learning how to dance the Samba.

PRICE: £20pp or £30 per couple
(BOOK ONLINE)

Our LearnToDance monthly beginner workshop classes take place at Eton Wick Village Hall, Eton Wick Road, Eton Wick, SL4 6LT.

Designed for beginners our monthly beginner workshops are a great way to learn the basics of a dance in a concentrated 2 hour workshop.

We look at a different dance each month. This month’s dance is the Foxtrot.

Smooth, sophisticated, elegant. All words to describe Antony, but also his favourite dance the Foxtrot. Classic Sinatra and Bobby Darin are best but Paul Anka’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ is a great twist on a modern classic.

As with all LearnToDance classes and workshops a partner is not required.

NEW VENUE Thursday evening classes

Learn To Dance LogoIt is with great regret that we have decided to move our Thursday night classes from our Eton venue.  Eton was the first hall we launched LearnToDance in, and has been a regular class for over 8 years now, however parking over the years has increasingly been a limiting factor and we have come to the decision to move to a venue that comes with plenty of its own parking.

From Thursday 10th July our new venue will be Desborough College, Shoppenhangers Road, Maidenhead, SL6 2QB.

We will continue to have a beginner class at 8pm and Improver class at 9pm, but we will also be introducing another FitSteps class at 7pm for those that might prefer a slightly earlier class than our existing Tuesday night Eton Wick class at 8.30pm.

We hope our existing Thursday night students will follow us to our new venue, but if it is a bit further out for you don’t forget we still have our Sunday night classes in Eton Wick or Mondays in Burnham.
