NEW! DYD Class night in Bournemouth, every Wednesday from 11th May at the O2 Academy in Boscombe!

NEW! DYD Class night in Bournemouth, every Wednesday from 11th May at the O2 Academy in Boscombe!

NEW! - Dance Yourself Dizzy is opening a class night in Bournemouth at the O2 Academy in Boscombe every Wednesday evening with the opening night on 11th May, and it's just £5 entry on opening night!

Situated in the heart of Boscombe on the pedestrianised section of Christchurch Road, the O2 Academy is truly stunning & one of the last few venues with a ballroom aura. Originally built as a theatre and for a circus, it has been an Edwardian music hall, a night club and of course the gorgeous venue you see today.

With it's large sprung dance floor & top notch sound & lighting systems, the Boscombe O2 Academy is the perfect place for a Dance Yourself Dizzy dance night. Free & plentiful parking is available at the Hawkwood Road car park (BH5 1DR) just round the corner. Free soft drinks are available at the venue, or you can bring your own alcohol or other soft drinks.

We are very excited to be opening a regular night in Bournemouth, and at such an amazing venue, with the aim of finally being able to bring a DYD night to our following from the Bournemouth & Poole areas. We hope you can join us at our opening night on Wednesday 11th May and look forward to seeing you there!

This Weeks Moves Straight To Your Inbox

How many times do you go to a class, learn 4 moves and then forget at least 3 of them by the time you get up the next morning. The stuff you learnt is in your head somewhere you just can't quite access it.

This doesn't have to be the case.

This Weeks MovesDance Yourself Dizzy supply a step by step reminder for all of the moves we teach in our classes via our 'This Weeks Moves' pages so that you can refresh your memory any time.

And now its even better. Up until now the only thing you had to remember to do was to go to our 'This Weeks Moves' page and see what you had forgotten but now you don't even have to do that. We can email them straight to your inbox each week.

Simply go to the 'This Weeks Moves' page. Fill in your name and email address on the right hand side and pick your venue. Job Done.

As soon as we update the moves from the latest class you get them sent to you in an email. We only update after a class and you only get the moves from your chosen venue so you only get the stuff that relevant to you.

So why not visit 'This Weeks Moves' and sign up now. It's free, it's easy and you will never forget our classes again.

Dance Yourself Dizzy DVDs. Learn at home then show off to the world.

Modern Jive DVDsWhy not fast track your learning and learn Modern Jive moves at home.

Our DVDs take you right from the basics of Modern Jive and onwards. Learning to dance Modern Jive at home can compliment your regular class nights or teach you from scratch.

If you already attend a class night our DVDs can remind you of moves that you might have already covered while adding to the repertoire of moves at your disposal. What's the point of spending time and money going to a class night if you then come home and forget everything you have learnt.

If you don't already attend a class night and want to learn from the very basics our Beginners DVD will cover that too.

Each DVD teaches moves in the same way as you would learn in a normal class, breaking them down step by step and then running through them up to speed.

Our range of DVDs currently includes the following titles.

Beginners Modern JiveImprovers Modern JiveIntermediate 1 and Intermediate 2

For even better value be sure to check out our multi pack options.

So what are you waiting for? Kick start your learning and improve your moves with the range of DYD DVDs
