Ballroom & Latin Dance Holidays for Solo Dancers

strictly come dancing glitterballThe glitter and glamour of TV’s “Strictly Come Dancing” has done much to popularise ballroom & Latin dance, inspiring many to take to the floor. “You Make Me Feel Like Dancing”, recently shown on BBC2, followed celebrity choreographer Jack Murphy’s mission to get social dancing in traditional dancehalls back on the map. But what do you do if you don’t have a regular dance partner?

Media attention enthuses about ballroom dancing being a social hobby, a good way to make friends, a great form of exercise and many other positive factors, with accompanying images depicting couples gliding across the floor. Again there is distinct lack of focus on how solo dancers can get involved.

As host to many dance holidays here in Torquay, TLH Leisure Resort is keenly aware of this issue. Only last week a lady was desperately looking for a dance break suitable for two solo ladies. Apparently because of her lack of a dance partner she had been turned away by a national dance school and also a distinguished cruise line.

Well thankfully help is at hand. Not only does TLH Leisure Resort include a couple of Solos Dance Breaks on the annual calendar of events, there are also several breaks where regular hosts are happy to include solo dancers. In addition to these, Linedancing holidays are just perfect for solo dancers too.

    Aged 67, ‘a party person’ I seek Lady/ Ladies to share Social dances.
    As I live in the tiny village of Foxhole, in Clay Country Mid- Cornwall, I would appreciate once a week or monthly, and prefer Saturday Evenings, hopefully in Cornwall.
    Due to the Cultural-isolation, experienced by living near St Austell, I have missed Ballroom Dancing, since moving over 5 years ago. I would hence be happy dancing at Improvers / Bronze / Silver level, with Party dances included

    I do not know how practical this is, due to distance from Mid-Cornwall to Mid-Devon
