Friday 26 June - Monday 29 June 2020

Come and join us in June 2020 for 3 days of fun and dancing in the historic port town of Bideford, which sits on the west bank of the River Torridge in beautiful North Devon. 

The Durrant House Hotel was originally built in the 1800s but has grown to a modern hotel with an outdoor heated pool, a health and beauty spa, and a small fitness room. If it's peace and quiet you are after then there's also a reading room, and I did spot a pool table in my wanderings around the hotel.


Westward Ho!, Appledore and Bideford are just a 5-minute drive away, so it's the perfect spot from which to explore North Devon's coastline and countryside. It's only 1 mile from the Royal North Devon Golf Club and only 2 miles from the Northam Burrows Country Park, a semi-wild landscape with access to a sandy beach.

We have exclusive use of the hotel ballroom for our stay - both for dining and dancing. The laminate floor measures approximately 2800 square feet, although some of that will be used for dining space.  It is considered one of the finest dance floors in Devon.

The dance weekend will consist of 6 1/2 hours of dance workshops, social dancing in the evening and a gala evening with live music and a dance demonstration on Saturday. You can do as much or as little as you like!

There will be a minimum of 2 teachers, and should our numbers go up to 40 couples then we plan to have a third teaching assistant as well. Teachers are IDTA qualified. Participants will separate into smaller groups for the workshops.
