Since we arrived home from our Tango and Tinsel weekend we have been buzzing with the joy of the many delights that you provided for us to celebrate "Christmas and New Year".

We were astounded at your attention to detail and how well you looked after all of us, both collectively and individually. It was so much more than we expected and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the weekend.

We have been practicing our Penny Paso since we got home and are confident that we can go public with it this week. Having enjoyed our time in Gt. Malvern so much, we were extremely surprised and absolutely delighted to receive two photographs in the post this weekend. Thank you so very much. This was the icing on the cake, and yet again demonstrates what we consider to be your total attention to detail.

Hope to be with you both again in the future. Love, Henry and Barbara xx

Summer and Christmas

It's so lovely to see old and new friends in the dance breaks and especially to continue our dance journey with Penny and Ian.

We started dancing on a cruise ship with Penny and Ian. It is only due to their fun teaching and endless patience that we carried on dancing when we got home.

Penny and Ian's Dance weekends are great fun with well taught dance workshops that get everyone on the floor. They go the extra mile with special little touches that make their weekends unique. The Christmas dance was really good fun and we are already booked to go again in Summer and Xmas 2020.

We attended our first weekend in August 2018 as complete beginners and had such a good time that we've been to everyone since, simply the best way to spend a weekend.

The dancing has to be our favourite part and don't worry about knowing every dance as either Ian and Penny will show you or the other dancers are more than happy to help.

Absolutely excellent hosts very welcoming, friendly, nothing is to much trouble, the attention to detail is first rate.

would definitely recommend to other dancers as long as we're already booked.

November 2019 We enjoyed it all. There was nothing Ian and Penny could have done to make it better. They were absolutely brilliant. That was out first break with them but felt really welcomed. We definately would and looking forward to going to the Tango and Tinsel weekend again this year .

We really enjoyed both the August & November 2019 breaks

Everything was spot on, especially the dance classes. We loved trying out the new dance routines taught in the workshops during our evening sessions.

Ian & Penny are first class, true professionals in their field. First class hosts and good friends.

We are most definitely going to book and attend future dance breaks with Ian & Penny

Thank you both for an amazing experience this weekend. We have never danced properly before and now you've given us confidence to keep dancing!

The whole weekend has been lovely and so well planned so we could completely relax.

We'll be sorry to leave but will definately be back again if you'll have us!

Thank you both again for welcoming us with open arms and starting us off on what we hope will be a life long hobby. See you next time. x Lucy & John

We attended the very first dance break Ian and Penny put on and we were a bit unsure how it would be because we did not know anyone else. However, there was no need to worry as the atmosphere created by Ian and Penny is fabulous and we made some new friends.

Our favourite part was the fun Ian and Penny bring to learning new dances, they are so patient with everyone and the varying abilities in the room.

Ian and Penny have that 'X Factor' as hosts that you can't explain, it just works. Their friendly personalities and love for each other shine through and they make you feel so welcome and part of the group.

We would thoroughly recommend Ian and Penny Dance Breaks to any dancers. We are sequence dancers and always struggled when attending ballroom events, but Ian and Penny helped us with floor craft and how to get up and join in starting with a simple routine, it changed our dancing life. Thank you Ian and Penny and hopefully we will join you again soon on another dance break.
