Keeping you updated

To all our valued students and families:

Unfortunately, due to Government regulations as a result of the CoronaVirus situation, we have closed the studio and suspended all dances, classes, lessons and other activities from 21st March, 2020 until further notice.

We are hoping to still run all planned dance holidays and events from June onwards.

The health and well-being of our students, families and teachers is our priority during this very difficult time.

We feel positive that once the CoronaVirus threat is over, Hurst Dance will bounce back bigger and better than ever!!

For students who have paid for dance courses or lessons in advance, please rest assured that this money will be credited to your classes or lessons when we resume.

We realise all of you will be disappointed about our temporary closure, as Hurst Dance is not just a dance studio. It is most students’ second home, where people of all ages and from all walks of life meet socially on a regular basis with a mutual love of dancing. However, Kathryn and I will still be here to support you all. We are only a phone call or email away if you need anything, even if it’s only someone to talk to.

Kathryn and I wish you all the very best at this very difficult time. We also want to thank you all for your support in the past and your ongoing support.

Stay safe and healthy and take care of each other!!

With love to you all,
Phil, Kathryn, Ysobella, Matylda, Beatryx and Sebastian ❤️

2020 Breaks now listed below and on sale!

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.

Phil & Kathryn


Dance Breaks typically consist of.....

• Dinner, bed and breakfast.

• 8+ hours of workshops and lessons in varying styles and levels

• Friday afternoon workshops

• Friday night dance – this usually has a theme – guests find this great fun and a wonderful icebreaker. You can choose to get dressed up to get in the mood, however, smart casual is absolutely fine too.

• Saturday daytime – workshops from 10am - 5pm

• Saturday night dinner and dance – Black Tie and usually includes an all-star demonstration after dinner

• We also try to host a workshop with the demonstrating couple

All weekends are hosted by Phil.

Please note that the dance break programmes may vary and be subject to change, due to exceptional circumstances. Demonstrations are not guaranteed and the number of workshops varies depending on the availability of the room.
