Take part

Join a class

Dancefest is a dance organisation that runs dance classes for all ages across Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

There are over 30 classes a week for children, young people and adults. Visit the timetable page to see the full details. 

You can find out how to book on to a class here. 

We aim to be a friendly and open place for people who are new to dance to have fun and learn new skills, as well as offering advanced classes and three youth dance companies for experienced dancers.

Here's a link to our autumn brochure online. You'll see it in a rack near you. Let us know if you'd like us to post you one.

Winter Solstice at Fort Royal Park, Worcester
Tuesday 22 December, 3pm-5pm
The Friends of Fort Royal Park and Commandery Gardens are organising a special free Winter Solstice family event in Fort Royal Park and Dancefest will be joining with a special performance in the park. Winter Solstice marks the shortest day of the year and the longest night, an opportunity to leave behind the dark days and the old year and look forward with hopes and aspirations for the new year.



Local theatres let us know about their dance performances and we collect these into a diary. Look out for regular special ticket offers.
