Events

Here’s a selection of some of the events planned for 2021 and 2022. For more information and to book contact us.

Modern Jive Saturday Sleepover, Palace Hotel, Buxton: Saturday 25th September

Following on from the success of the first MJ Sleepover in October 2019, the second MJ Sleepover is booked. 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 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 £93 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 £103 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).

Autumn Ball, Burton upon Trent Town Hall: 1st October 2021

With all FIVE previous balls cancelled because of Covid, we’re finally back at this beautiful venue and it is surely something to look forward to. It’s definitely time to put your sparkle on, and anything that glitters, goes! It’s time to dance, dance, dance! With Carol Bradbury playing all the music, there’s no excuse to not book the date in your diaries!

Tickets cost £17 each.

Burn’s Night, 29th January 2022
Want2Dance with Victoria celebrated Burn’s Night last year on Zoom. Everyone dressed in their best Scottish garb, drank a tot or two of whisky and danced to a fair range of music from Scotland or by Scottish singers or musicians, in their kitchens, lounges or conservatories. Despite Lockdown, it was a huge success.

So come and celebrate Robbie Burns this year in person, on a real dance floor at the studio.
