Overseas and UK Dances and Holidays Re-Organised 
We have re-organised our holiday and mini break coming events page, because we are getting more and more requests from countries all over the world to advertise their dances and specials. So we have split our Holidays and Mini Breaks into two to form two new pages; Overseas Dances and Holidays and UK Holidays and Mini Breaks. They basically do as what they say on the tin. All events will of course still appear in the main Jan - Dec coming Events. It is our hope that it will help you look for events in a more efficient manor. Check out our new pages - Overseas Dances and Holidays & UK Holidays and Mini-Breaks.
