Herefordshire Diamond Day will be a huge county-wide event on the King George V playing fields and there will be a visit from HRH The Queen! It is a TOTALLY FREE EVENT TO ATTEND!

Here’s a quick round up of what’s been going on in June!
Vicky had a wonderful trip to the palace for the Diamond Jubilee concert! We’ve started taking classes at the new HALO Leisure Pool Studios, we’ve been teaching at Herefordshire children’s centres, we had a wonderful Bollywood dance themed Hen Do, we’ve rehearsed our dance for the Queen! We gave a mini-workshop at Trinity School Fete, we met Ian Rush at the opening of The Hereford Academy all weather pitch, Becks has started Yoga teacher training & we’ve been into lots of schools busy promoting our Summer workshop! Phew!

Keep an eye on our website & Facebook and page for regular news & class updates as some of Vicky’s classes will be stopping over summer but all of Becks’ classes will continue.
We’re always keeping our classes fresh & exciting so if you haven’t been for a while, we’d love to see you and if you’re a regular – thank you for your support!

Here’s hoping for some sunshine this summer but whatever the weather keep shining and keep dancing!
