...The Dance Holiday People

Philip Wylie and Holiday & Dance are proud to offer over 40 years' experience of providing great dance events for dancers.

A warm welcome to all dancers who enjoy MODERN BALLROOM and LATIN AMERICAN together with some popular Social Sequence, plus specialised Argentine Tango breaks.

In considering our dance programme maybe you are not quite certain about your own dance standard and whether it would be suitable for the different holidays on offer. Let us reassure you, we believe that our successful format of dancing in the evening, often with demonstrations, plus daily or maybe early evening ‘Learn & Improve sessions’ are absorbing, enjoyable, worthwhile and suitable for all levels whether Beginner or coming Champion. We tend to categorise dancing into the following areas:

SOCIAL DANCING This includes people such as Leisure Dancers who dance very occasionally maybe at dinner dances or on holiday and continues through to the Hobby Dancer who is more enthusiastic and dances weekly, possibly attending classes or lessons and sometimes continues through to medallist training. Within this category are early stage dancers (can be called Beginners) and to us this usually means those who have been dancing approx. 12 months or maybe returning to dance: ‘Learn & Improve sessions’ at our packages tend to be presented in separate sessions: early stage / intermediate & beyond.

LEARN TO DANCE Please see special programme for those who cannot dance or maybe wish to return and update – download or send for leaflet.

COMPETITIVE DANCING Covers a wide category from relatively inexperienced to very experienced of a high standard. The majority of the holidays detailed are suitable for all whether social or competitive. If you would like further guidance or reassurance please do not hesitate to telephone, email or write to Philip Wylie who will be pleased to help to ensure a happy dancing experience.

Our range of enjoyable and good value dancing holidays include:

  • Top Class Live and Recorded Music
  • World’s best in Demonstrations
  • Friendly Learn and Improve sessions
  • Enjoy Great Venues

We believe in the famous saying ‘Friendship Through Dance’ and the sharing of dance experiences on holiday very much enhances the enjoyment with like-minded people. Rightly the benefits of the Holiday and Dance experience provides great satisfaction and with this in mind our range of dancing holidays whether weekend, mid-week or maybe week long festivals or overseas packages provide choice and opportunity. Please browse through our holiday calendar and consider the many options of hotels, ballrooms and venues, compare value being offered, enjoy the opportunities to view top class demonstrations or maybe national or international championship events. Please do not hesitate to make contact if you would like advice or guidance and of course we always welcome requests for particular resorts or venues. Happy Dancing
