With DJ Kay sharing the decks with Victoria, you will be assured of a warm welcome and a great night out. There’s no bar so bring your own, and there is plenty of free on-site parking. Wear your favourite summery outfit, and dance from 8pm right through until 11.30pm. Tickets cost £7 in advance or £8 on the door. To secure your place, please contact us.
Dance Weekender, Inn on the Prom, St Annes on Sea: July 19th – 21st, 2019

Each evening you will be dancing to Carol Bradbury on Keyboard followed by a Late Night Smooth with Victoria.
Over and above most ‘normal’ dance weekends, you will be able to attend workshops and dancing each day with Victoria, starting with your arrival on the Friday afternoon, continuing on the Saturday, and finishing with a Sunday workshop and morning dance.
The basic price is just £168 per person, and includes dinner, bed and breakfast, all workshops and dancing.
Hotel room upgrades are available via Victoria. Book early to ensure a single room with NO single supplement. To secure your place, please contact us and provide a £30.00 deposit (non-refundable).
Sparkle and Spuds, The Dance Studio: September 28th 2019
Something new! It’s the time of the Harvest Festival, and what better way to celebrate all of the lovely produce this country grows, than to hold a ‘Harvest Supper.’ Clearly, we ladies need to dress up, (as do you gentlemen), but bring your own liquid refreshments to accompany the jacket potato supper. If you could also bring some groceries that can be distributed to Burton’s local charities, we will indeed be celebrating a traditional Harvest Festival. With more details to follow, put this date into your diaries and watch this space!
Modern Jive Saturday Sleepover, The Palace Hotel, Buxton: October 19th 2019
Here is another first for Want2Dance with Victoria! The 4* Palace Hotel is set in over 5 acres of landscaped gardens, but is still very close to the centre of Buxton itself, and it is an ideal base from which to explore the Peak District. Not that you will have much time, as the Sleepover starts with a Modern Jive Afternoon Tea Dance. Dinner is will be served in the Ballroom before the dancing starts. With all your favourite tunes, expect to dance into the early hours… a hearty breakfast heralds the start of Sunday, and a Morning Coffee Dance concludes your stay.
If you are sharing, the basic price is just £89 per person, and includes dinner, bed and breakfast, and all of your dancing. There are ‘cosy doubles’ available for those coming on their own, and these cost just £99 per person.
Places are limited, and will be gender balanced. To secure your place, please contact us and provide a £30.00 deposit (non-refundable).
Day of the Dead, The Want2Dance with Victoria Studio: November 2nd 2019
Unlike spooky Hallowe’en, Day of the Dead festivities celebrate love and respect for those who have died, and it is a national holiday in Mexico. Wear your funky make up, colourful clothes come and join in with non-stop dancing – there will be something for everyone! With more details to follow, put this date into your diaries and watch this space!
Strictly Finals Dance Party, The Want2Dance with Victoria Studio: December date tbc
If you avidly watch Strictly each Saturday, the Results Show of a Sunday, and It Takes Two during the week, then this night is for YOU!! Will your favourites make the final? Who is going to win? Why not come and join in the fun and watch the final on a big screen? Bring something for the buffet table, voice your opinions during the show, cast your votes, and hope your favourite wins! Then dance, dance and dance right through until the end of the evening – Ballroom, Latin, Modern Jive, one or two Sequences, maybe Uptown Funk. With more details to follow, watch this space!
Masquerade Ball, The Want2Dance with Victoria Studio: New Year’s Eve 2019
Following the huge success of the first Masquerade Ball in 2018, come and celebrate the end of 2019 and the start of 2020 with another glorious Masquerade Ball. Dress up in your finery, bring your cava and canapés, and dance the year away. Ballroom, Latin, your favourite Sequence Dances, a little Latin in Line, smooth Modern Jive – there will be something for everyone!
In true Want2Dance with Victoria style, your tables will be laden with other goodies too – wine, savouries, chocolate – and when midnight approaches, fizz to welcome the New Year in. Tickets cost £21 and as it is a ticket-only event, make sure you get yours soon! To secure your place, please contact us.
Sequence Dance Break, Inn on the Prom, St Annes on Sea: February 16th – 18th, 2020

Each evening you will be dancing to Carol Bradbury on Keyboard followed by a little Late Night Smooth with Victoria.
There will be a Sequence Workshop on the Monday morning, where you will learn one or two of the more recent sequences dances, which you will then be able to put into practice on the Afternoon Tea Dance, and again that evening.
The 2019 basic price was £130.00 per person for dinner, bed and breakfast. This included the workshop and all of your dancing, but 2020 prices have yet to be set.
