If Body Pump leaves you feeling deflated and Body Combat has you fighting to get away, then why not join us for a unique two-night dance break in luxury countryside surroundings.

Apparently, we all share a natural sense of rhythm… Dancing, unlike some forms of exercise, is a combination of physical activity, freedom of creativity and a way of emotional expression. Not only does dancing have positive effects on the body, but it also gives your brain a workout too! Some benefits of dance include boosting your happiness levels, improving your flexibility, balance and posture, whilst making time to reconnect with your inner self and others.

Our activity timetable features a range of popular dance workouts but this is your chance to be among a friendly group to try your hand (or feet!) at some new ones too, all choreographed specifically for this event by our amazingly creative team and led by award-winning trainer, Dean Hodgkin, who has headed up dance projects for top brands such as Nike and Reebok.

There will be plenty of time to recharge too – relax and be pampered in true Ragdale Hall style; roam freely in our Thermal Spa, Rooftop Infinity Pool, indoor and outdoor pools, or unwind in one of our quiet relaxation areas – and enjoy a luxurious 40-minute treatment.

The expert-led classes will feature non-complex, easy to master routines – so even if you have two left feet, the emphasis is simply on getting your body moving. However, new for 2022, we’ll be adding a bonus routine to your timetable that sprinkles in a little extra choreography for those of you who fancy a challenge and have an appearance on Strictly in your sights.

“We were straight into learning some fantastic routines, including a hot Latin Salsa and an energetic jive! There was a mixed range of abilities and all the routines were delivered by dance teachers who ensured we were challenged, but that nothing was too complex.” – Julie Player, Fashion Editor, Simply You
