Location & Travel

Henley-on-Thames, UK: (see Google Maps here http://tinyurl.com/yxfszwjh).  This beautiful, historic riverside town is close to the large town of Reading and the city of Oxford and is 40 miles drive from the centre of London. Both Reading and Oxford as as Henley itself have excellent rail & bus links to the nearest airport which is London Heathrow.  For travel advice, contact info@alljazzedup.com

We use two venues in Henley, the Town Hall in the Market Place in the centre of the town and the Henley Rugby Club which is a short walk of about ten minutes away.

 

Classes

We do not operate a “level” system at TVBF.  Instead we ask student to select what area of the dance they want to work on from the following choices

Start Smoothly: Suitable for Beginners (including absolute beginners), Improvers and anyone who wants to revisit their basics with some of the best instructors in the world!

Flow & Finesse:  Concentrating on quality of movement &, partner connection

Moves & Musicality: Concentrating how to make moves and movement more musical

All three groups will have classes with all three sets of instructors.
