Hurst Dance Events is now known as Dancers' Dream Events.

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a fresh look and new name for an amazing dance events company.

All breaks are still hosted by Phil, but bigger and better than ever with an amazing team assisting too.

We hope you can join us for the ride.

Keep dancing.

With over 100 dance breaks under our belt, we really have perfected the recipe for a wonderful weekend; the number of repeat guests attending multiple breaks each year speaks volumes.


Our dance weekends are fast becoming famous for our great music, wonderful venues, fabulous atmosphere, highest quality lessons & workshops, as well as our attention to detail in every aspect and our personal feel.

As dancers since the age of 8 we understand that enthusiastic hosts, great music, space to dance and magnificent floors are what is needed to make an event or weekend a fabulous and memorable occasion.

We go out of our way to ensure everyone has the best time at all of our events. All socials and events are 50:50 (50% Ballroom/Latin and 50% Sequence) unless otherwise stated.

We love to connect with our guests, so please do call if you have any questions.

We hope you can join us.
