Our summer term has started

But there's still time to join a class or take part in a project or performance.

Take part

Class timetable

Dancefest runs over 30 weekly dance classes for children, young people and adults across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. 

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

We have a brand new online booking system. It means you only need to complete your enrolment details once and then you can just use the username and password to book at the start of each term.

Book on to a class

We have three youth dance companies and provide information for young dancers and choreographers.
