What we're about

Do you love dancing and holidays? Do you often want to join a dance holiday or short break but friends, families and partners don't want to join you? Are you unsure of travelling alone to a dance event? Then why not join us in our 'Social Dancers Group Holidays' Meetup Group?

Who should join this group?

This Meetup Group is for Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, Ballroom & Latin Social Dancers all over the UK that are interested in Dance Holidays, Short Breaks, Weekenders and Festivals. From 18 to 80 & beyond, any level of dance experience (from none to expert), everybody is welcome.

We're here to bring you news of great Dance Holidays and Short Breaks that are suitable for everyone and where you will always feel welcome, solo or accompanied.

We are UK based, so anyone can join from the UK and trips can be anywhere! If you have a passion for travel & dance and want to enjoy social dance holidays with other like-minded people, then this is the group for you!

We'll bring you news of our trips and notify you of who the travel agent / organiser / promoter is and then you'll book direct with them. We'll be here to give you as much information as possible and bring news of each trip. We'll help you get in touch with fellow travellers, organise room shares and share our knowledge on how to survive a dance holiday!

Share the holiday & dance experience and meet lots of new friends along the way!

This Group is organised by Adele Marsh, a UK Dance Teacher & Promoter with her own dance company 'Live to Dance EU'. Events are not always run by Adele directly, each event will clearly state if it is a 'Live to Dance EU' event or not. Most events will be organised by Enjoy Travel Ltd, of which Adele is an Event Coordinator.

You will, without doubt, be made to feel welcome from the outset and even if you can’t dance, there will be bags of opportunities to learn at the workshops! The music of course is presented by a group of thoroughly professional musicians and it is a absolute joy to just sit and listen to them even if you never put a foot on the dance floor!
