Adult Dance Classes
in York & Malton
Dancing is a 'HAPPY PLACE!'
Hello from the group founders , Judith, Stephen & Tina - This was us at the Festival of Vintage at York Racecourse and with our newest member - 'Winnie the Wolseley'
As a community dance group, we promote, demonstrate and teach adult dance classes in a social and relaxed environment.
With the emphasis on fun for all ages and abilities, it's a great way to excercise, learn a new skill and make lots of new friends!
So why not give dancing a try?
It has both physical and mental health benefits.
You don't need a dance partner to come, you can come on your own and we'll get you dancing!
We cover a wide range of individual and partner dances from the 1920's to the 1940's, 50's and beyond, playing great music from those decades, along with alternative modern and retro style songs.
We also host 1940's & Vintage themed dance nights, social evenings, outings and displays in & around York and Malton.
BESPOKE DANCE INSTRUCTION

A REVIEW from our WW2 Worshop at Wigginton Primary School
"Thank you so much for the wonderful World War Two dance workshop! The children absolutely loved it. They are still singing the songs and 'Doin' the Lambeth Walk'! Your team was very patient and friendy with the children. It was great value for money and we will definitely be contacting you when we study WWII again,"

From our Jitterbug/Swing Workshop at Huntington Club
"The YVDG team are so welcoming and are great dance teaches. They were very attentive to our lack of dance skills. It was our second class tonight and came away beaming both times as we'd successfully learnt all the dances that were being taught. The beginners workshops are brilliant too. Having been so many 40s and 50s events over the years and never danced properly it's great to think I'll now be able to get involved."
