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.

Pre-Order 10th Anniversary DVD

Thanks for 10 Years of Learn To Dance

10 Years OldAs many of you will know Learn To Dance turned 10 on Friday 29th April.  We couldn’t have achieved this without all of you; from those that come multiple times throughout the week to those that we only see occasionally.

We had a great time at our anniversary party and the DVD is currently available to pre-order for the special price of £10.

One thing that didn’t make it into our performance was a guest spot from Immi, but don’t worry we captured it on video for you to enjoy below.

Remember our Beginner Rumba Workshop this Friday

Fun Group ClassOur Friday night beginner workshops continue this Friday, 31st May, with the Rumba.  The workshop starts at 7.30pm and takes place at Burnham Park Hall, Windsor Lane, Burnham, SL1 7HR.

Rumba: ‘The dance of love’ it may be known as, but it is more the dance of restrained passion. Both dancers enticing the other with yearning looks and sensual hips, the trick to Rumba is all about the promise of what could be, without actually getting ‘down and dirty’. (Don’t worry Beginners, hips are entirely optional in this workshop!)

Remember our beginner workshops are designed for complete beginners and we aim to teach you a basic sequence in this 1 hour workshop.

The workshop costs £7.50 per person or you can pay £10 per person and stay on for our social night from 8.30pm-11pm.  Our workshops and socials run twice a month, normally on the 2nd and last Fridays of the month.

For details of our other classes you can view our timetable.
