Patreon continues

Even though I am starting a weekly ‘real-life’ dance class next month I shall be continuing to provide weekly live-streams and pre-recorded dance tutorial videos through Patreon for as long as I have enough Patrons to fund it. So if the online classes work better for you or you’d like them as an additional dance tutorial/exercise class then become a Patron. I will be providing the same ‘syllabus’ online to that which I’ll be teaching in-person so reality and virtual reality will synchronise perfectly.

Keep dancing!

Dust off your dance shoes, we're back!

It’s time to get excited. Real life, in-person Love to Dance classes launch in 3 weeks.


Initially I will only be offering one ‘real life’ Love to Dance class per week on a Tuesday morning. We’ll be in the upstairs hall at Great Denham Community Hall on Tuesday mornings 10:00-12:00 from 7th September 2021. (86-88 Saxon Way, Great Denham, Bedford. MK40 4GP)


It is a really nice studio space with air conditioning and mirrors. There is an adjoining kitchenette area, perfect for our tea break. You will need to bring your own cup or mug for the tea break, I will still provide complimentary tea and coffee.


Bookings are now open:

You must book and pay for your class online before the session. The new classes are £8.00 pay-as-you-go. (The price increase is due to a more expensive venue.) You can either pay by PayPal, by card or bank transfer. I will not be taking any payments on the door.


We will be starting a brand new A-Z of Dance and as done previously we will do 2 weeks of each dance style.


I look forward to dancing with you in-person next month.


Kind regards

I have been teaching Love to Dance classes for the over 50s in Bedfordshire for almost 9 years and up until March 2020 I held 4 classes a week. Each class was two hours long with a break midway for a complimentary tea or coffee and cost just £6.50 per class. Unfortunately I had to stop all my dance classes with the arrival of the Coronavirus in the UK. I have had many messages from my dancers telling me how much they're missing the sessions so that is why I have launched a page on Patreon to provide you with dance classes you can do at home during this period of lockdown.

Stay safe, stay home & keep dancing!

Love Yvette


ALL CLASSES CANCELLED until further notice

With immediate effect I am cancelling all �??Love to Dance�?? classes until further notice due to the Coronavirus pandemic. With my clients being over 50 years old, a lot of whom are over 70 and thus being of the most vulnerable I have decided it is the responsible action to take to close my dance classes for the foreseeable future.

Biddenham cancelled Thurs 12 March 2020

The heating at Biddenham Pavilion is not working so I have cancelled this week's class.

Stotfold class cancelled Tuesday 18th Feb

Stotfold class cancelled next week. I was informed today that a new boiler is being fitted Tuesday morning, 18th February, at Stotfold Memorial Hall so there won't be any heating in the venue. For this reason I have decided to cancel the class as it will be too cold for us (weather forecast says 5°C). All other Love to Dance sessions will run as planned. Reminder: There shall not be any Love to Dance the following week (25th, 26th & 27th Feb) as I shall be on the Isle of Wight for my Mum's funeral. Kind regards, Yvette

Stotfold classes cancelled over the summer.

Sorry to disappoint my Stotfold dancers but there will be no Love to Dance classes over the summer as previously planned. Stotfold Memorial Hall had given me incorrect information and I've only just been notified that they will be closing the hall for two weeks in August to do building maintenance. After careful consideration I've decided not to run the Stotfold dance classes on the remaining 3 weeks of the summer as it is very disjointed and confusing with a week off, fortnight on, fortnight off, week on & week off! I would like to invite any of my Stotfold dancers who are willing to travel to come and join me at an alternative venue should they wish to keep dancing through the summer (please see dates & times below.) The dancing at Stotfold shall recommence on Tuesday 3rd September. Love to Dance summer timetable: Tuesday 14:00-16:00 Renhold Village Hall, Wilden Road, Renhold, MK41 0LY. (No classes on 16th July & 27th Aug). Wednesday 10am -12pm Cardington Village Hall Southill Road, Cardington, MK44 3SX. (No classes 17th July & 28th Aug). Thursday 2pm - 4pm Biddenham Pavilion Deep Spinney, Biddenham, MK40 4QP (No classes 18th July & 29th Aug). £6.50 pay as you go, or 10 class punchcard for £60
