The course starts with dinner on Friday (in The Garden Room). There will be social dancing to recorded music on Friday evening, and on Saturday evening, dancing to music from Strathallan. Each morning there are two classes which will include techniques and the finer points of steps and formations in dances old and new.
During Saturday afternoon there will be an optional workshop, or you could take the opportunity to relax in the grounds of the house or explore the nearby town of Ilminster. The course finishes after lunch on Sunday.

This course is not considered suitable for beginners.
