Gill and Brian, co-founders of Dance Parties and Dance Parties Plus have been organising a wide variety of events for over 35s to 60s plus for more than 35 years, so they really know their stuff! You’ll generally find one or other of them (and sometimes both) at every event you attend, and there’s no doubt that their “hands on” approach is the main reason for the Club’s friendly reputation and continuing success.
From their own experience, they realise just how much courage it can take to make that first visit, and they know that first impressions count. That’s why both they and their lady organisers will make sure you always receive a warm and friendly welcome, and if you feel you’d like to be introduced to other members, just ask when you arrive.
Unlike similar organisations, Dance Parties Plus is run on a professional full-time basis and their Ascot office is generally open Monday to Saturday from 9.00am till 9.00pm (telephone number 0800 313 4441 or mobile 07913 400444). Outside of those hours, or if the office has to be closed for a short time, a voicemail message will give you the latest up to date information about the current week’s events. (It’s always a good idea to ring and double-check before setting out for an event because very occasionally there may be a last-minute change.)
The most important factors about our club and our events is that we have 2 or 3 ladies to greet you on arrival and be there for you throughout the evenings. Should you be coming on your own and wish to be introduced to anyone, our ladies will be happy to do this. We always have 2 if not 3 security staff just to make sure everything is running smoothly and this ensures safety for everyone attending. Probably the most important man of the night is the DJ and we have a choice of 5 DJs who have been handpicked over the years and some of them have worked for us for 15 to 20 years. They have been chosen in the main for their sound and lighting equipment their repertoire of music and their personality.
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ
We are a members only club which means that you have to be a member if you wish to attend our events. You can however pre-book the entrance to an event online (saving yourself £2) but you’ll need to join with our reception staff on arrival when you will be given a membership card as joining cannot be done online. The good news is that membership is only £5 for a year and this will allow you to attend any of our events.
Our aim is to give you such an enjoyable time that you’ll want to repeat the experience again and again, so do come along soon!
