Been to one of my classes and want to leave some feedback then please feel free to email me and I will add your comment onto the website. Thank you to everyone for all the lovely messages I receive. It is my pleasure to teach you all. Eileen
Fun2dance is the best! Very professional, friendly and accommodating dance teacher! Excellent classes - we enjoyed them so much we booked our own private lessons which were invaluable when it came to our wedding dance. I had two left feet when I started which Eileen somehow managed to cure me of - her endless patience and encouragement was always appreciated on my journey from basic to advanced lessons. Dan P
is a first class school for group tuition. Eileen,
assisted by Amy, provides excellent instruction and demonstrations at
this venue. Group classes for beginners and more advanced dancers
take place on Tuesday evenings in a very suitable hall that is heated
in winter and air-conditioned in summer
summer. We have been attending for over a year and our dancing has improved immeasurably. Ballroom and latin routines are taught and the standard of instruction is outstanding. In addition, seasonal party evenings are great fun. Howard B
Fun2dance review I find Eileen to be an excellent teacher and have thoroughly enjoyed attending her classes and will continue to do so. David F
fun2dance great fun two dance Having attended fun2dance classes for over 2 years my wife and I started in the beginners class and progressed to the level 2 classes, all classes progressed slowly enough to follow but quickly enough to remain interesting. All classes are very sociable and inclusive for all. I started as a complete novice but was always encouraged by Eileen and all other dancers in the class. Roy C
Simply strictly!!! Totally love this dance school. Eileen is an excellent teacher and the way she sets out the class really helps you learn but also allows for everyone to progress at their own pace. Great fun and learning at the same time! Lisa P
Excellent After having ballroom lessons with Eilean we went on a cruise. The dance instructor remarked how well we must have taught. Stephen & Deborah B
Yes it is fun to dance Exactly what is says! It is fun to dance, and learning is great fun with Eileen, and Amy. The classes centre on waltz, quickstep and foxtrot, and also include the latin dances, cha cha rumba and tango. So there may be a 2/3 week run of the waltz, and then a week of cha cha etc. Eileen also has even more fun classes with social dances and a party Christmas. Join in learn and laugh. Jacqueline G
Fun and lovely people Incredibly professional and fun dance teacher. We had the best time here and met some lovely people. Would definitely recommend. Joraen A
Fun2dance LOS Excellent teachers. Fun, friendly and enjoyable as well as a good, worthwhile learning experience. Jean E
The title describes the experience exactly. Eileen's classes really do make it "Fun to dance". I have been attending Eileen's classes for a year and every class has been great fun. Help is always there when you need it and Eileen has a great team around her to ensure everyone is progressing. I am always sorry if I cannot make the weekly classes. Whether or not you have a regular partner every session is relaxed and friendly. Great exercise too of course. I would recommend these classes to singles or couples of any age. Joan B
Lots of laughter and good company. A friendly and fun evening with excellent instructors. If you are looking for enjoyment and learning, and of course some excellent exercise in a pleasant and air conditioned environment (soimportant in this weather!) then this is the place to go. Kim C
It really is Fun2Dance so give it a go! Fun2Dance is brilliant. I'm a total beginner with two left feet, little rhythm but plenty of enthusiasm. The classes are great fun, with excellent teaching which is tailored to the needs ofthe people in the room, in my case basic but forever hopeful of improvement. The pace of the classes is achievable and we usually practice one dance per week, and recap the steps the following week, before moving on to another dance. We then re-visit dances previously practiced adding more steps, so we have several dances in our repertoire by the end of each term. Do come and join in, whatever level you are Eileen and her team of helpers will make your dancing experience a good one. Oh, and don't be put off if you don't have a dance partner. Rowena H
Hi Eileen, so pleased to be back dancing and really enjoyed the evening. I thought you looked lovely. Jacqueline JULY 2018
Steve and I do hope that in the future we will be able to resume dancing. We did enjoy the lessons, Roberts humour, and joking with other couples. I think I can easily say “we miss dancing class”. We will keep in touch. Steve and Linda MAY 2018
Thanks Eileen for your email. The Paso Doble instruction was indeed enormous fun, as are all your sessions. We look forward to the Thorngate Charity dance on 7th Howard & Joan MAR 2018
we learn so much in your lessons!!...which is finally enabling us to enjoy dancing...rather than me finding it stressful all the time . Thank you for all your help. Ruth & Mike MAR 2018
We haven't been dancing since your party. It was a really lovely evening and I think everyone had a great time. Richard & Sylvia DEC 2017
Just to say how much we enjoyed both the jolly Christmas Party and the VW evening on Tuesday. Two fun evenings splendidly animated by yourself and Amy including some nice new figures like the cuddle. We went home glowing if exhausted! Howard & Joan DEC 2017
Lovely evening last night, thank you. David DEC 2017
I still don't feel well enough to dance so won't be able to manage tonight. I am gutted. I have been looking forward to this so much. I hope it is a huge success. Thanks for all your help and advice over the past year. Glenna DEC 2017
Great Class tonight, thank you very much. David OCT 2017
I just wanted to say how much Andrew and I enjoyed dancing last night. It was really good to have 10 minutes at the end to put into practice what we had learnt. We were able to try and negotiate our way around the dance floor avoiding any collisions (well almost) and get tips from you where we were going wrong. All much appreciated. Looking forward to next week already. Lisa OCT 2017
Thank you so much for yesterday’s session, we thoroughly enjoyed it and all the good advice we received. Howard & Joan SEPT 2017
Hi Eileen We had so much fun last night. Thank you Ruth SEPT 2017
It does What is says on the tin! Great fun evening at Lee on Solent - love learning to dance – great teachers – good fun. Kim AUG 2017
Really enjoyed both lessons today. Especially the timing, so thank you, ace. Really enjoy your classes and how you teach it. David JUL 2017
I finished the eve dancing with young Amy bless her. She is a real gem. So much patience. I am looking forward to next Tues Take care. Derek FEB 2017
Thank you once again for a lovely evening on Tuesday. Stephanie DEC 2015
Thanks to everyone involved in organising Tuesday evening it was really good fun. Roy DEC 2015
Thanks so much for the lovely party yesterday. We really noticed all the thought and attention to detail you had put in. Kind regards. Heidi and Lesley. DEC 2015
So enjoy the lessons - great fun! Love J x NOV 2015
JUNE 2014 below are some of the comments I received after announcing that I was giving up teaching my classes in Southampton....
Ur teaching is fabulous. Enjoyed ur dance lessons immensely. Take care. Hope
to see u in the future. Vanessa xx JUN 14
I am sorry that you are moving on, and leaving us behind. As I said to you once before, some time ago, you are by far the best dance teacher I have had (although I have a rather limited experience of about 8 teachers.) I love your clear precise style, and the way go through from the basic steps of a small part of a dance right through rise & fall, timing, by yourself and then with partners. I also agree with you that it is so important to keep changing partners. I wish you well and success Eric JUN 14
You will be sorely missed at Southampton, as a first rate teacher and lovely, inclusive personality. I'm sorry to have missed last Monday. In case I don't see you before you leave, my very warmest wishes go with you for your future. Rosie JUN 14
Wishing you a lovely evening as you celebrate your wonderful class. I'll raise a toast from Germany Audrey JUN 14
Thank you for the enjoyable lessons I have had with
you & I do wish you great happiness in the future. With best wishes, Vivien JUN
I am so sorry you won't be teaching on a Monday after this month, I really enjoyed your classes, Beth :-) x JUN 14
I am very sorry to hear that you are giving up teaching the Monday class at Southampton.I have greatly enjoyed these classes and have gained much from them thanks to your great teaching. Kate JUN 14
We will be very sad to see you go but of course wish you all the best. Thanks for all your hard work and patience, Natalie and Mark x JUN 14
I am very sad that you won’t be at Southampton any more..You are such a great teacher and I have learnt a lot from you and you have been kind enough to allow me to learn the mens steps at the early class which has been fascinating and fun. Thanks very much and see you for cha cha next week! Lou JUN 14
Really sad to hear that news. I don't think I would've stuck with ballroom if it wasn't for your teaching. None of the other ballroom classes I went to previously managed to keep my interest and just weren't as fun as other styles until I found yours. Stewart...JUN 14
Oh my goodness! we are obviously very disappointed but hope that this won't mean we don't see you again. We have so enjoyed our time dancing with you.. Beverly and Philip xx JUN 14
Incredibly sad news :(( I've thoroughly enjoyed ballroom with you every step of the way, even if I haven't on the odd occasion felt like going out on a Monday night at times, it's always lifted my spirits once I was there. I will miss you tremendously.. Love S-J JUN 14
It is good that so many people are showing an interest in ballroom dancing. I do really like the style of teaching, and friendly and professional nature of the staff. Kind regards, Carol MAR 2014
Thank you once again or hosting a wonderful social evening. It was a lovely atmosphere. Stephanie DEC 2013
Thank you Eileen and all of your brilliant team! It was a great party, the time just flew by! xx Lesley DEC 2013
Whilst writing I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed your class on Tuesday, we not only learnt the social Foxtrot but also the Foxtrot, which we had not done for a long time. For me your teaching style is one of the best, you not only teach the steps but also the style of the dance, posture and rise and fall, which was great. Thank you very much. Kind regards, Lorraine & Ian NOV 2013
Hi Eileen I think I can speak for all of your bunch (of dancers) that we thoroughly enjoyed last night - you are a 'star'. I personally did not realise that I could do so much, with the encouragement of the others!.
A great evening and hope that some how more of them could be arranged. Kind Regards John SEPT 2013
Just to thank you for organising such a lovely social evening. Mum and I really enjoyed it. You created a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. However, it did make me realise how little I remember of any of the dance routines apart from the very basic steps!
See you next week. Stephanie MAY 2013
Just wanted to say what fun we had learning the Samba. We had one lesson a long time ago, so we know what it is supposed to look like. We really enjoyed it, and want some more please. Kind regards Pauline & Eddy. MAY 2013
My husband and I came to our first class with you last night and had a great time. We very much look forward to seeing you the week after. Barbara Okill APRIL 2013
I am very much enjoying Eileen’s Monday class, have even bought shoes and so love them that am sure they are the start of an expensive habit!
Warm regards Min MAY 2012
Hi Eileen, Roy and I had a fabulous time Monday we both really enjoyed it, when’s the next social??? Love Roy and Janx MAY 2012
We really enjoyed your social on Monday and look forward to hearing from you later in the year re future events. Sue and Paul MAY 2012
Thankyou very much for such an enjoyable evening, went home tired but happy, had lots of dances which was great, Beth x :-) MAY 2012
Thought I'd let you know, I really missed dancing last night. Fully appreciate you are allowed a day off, but looking forward to getting back to normal next Monday. Have a good week and see you for Waltz next monday Audrey APR 2012
We appreciate the hard work you do with us all. Clive and I were just saying today how much we have learnt in a year since coming to Fun2dance. Met some lovely people as well. We think we learn because we are relaxed and you make it that. Although we have a 45 minutes journey it is worth every mile and on the way home we have time to talk over what we have done. Look forward to seeing you on Monday. Thank you. Dix MAR 2012
Keep up the teaching your very good Josie FEB 2012
Eileen I thought you managed so many people brilliantly!! Felt a bit self conscious but it was ok Tina Blackmore JAN 2012
Thankyou again for such an exellant level of teaching
Beth :-) JAN 2012
Hi, We had a lot of fun! we did laugh alot at how rubbish we were, but will be back on monday to laugh at ourselves again.
regards Roz JAN 2012
Just wanted to say Roy and I had a lovely eve on Monday, obviously made even better for Roy as he won an award!! It was perfect , thank you very much for organising it and we both hope you have a great break over xmas and see you in2012!!!
Keep Dancing Love Jan and Royxx DEC 2011
Dear Tracie and Eileen, I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you for your time. I understand you must be very busy and i really appreciate the time you've taken. Your classes are well structured, well taught and have a lovely relaxed atmosphere about them. I can now clearly see how using dance as part of a rehabilitation program can be very beneficial. Many thanks! Victoria NOV 2011
I am sorry for the delay but I wanted to say thank you for such a great evening on Monday at your social dance. I had a lovely time.
I am looking forward to getting my life back soon and to do a lot more dancing and I still hope to do all the waltz classes!
Best wishes Marie SEPT 2011
Dear Eileen and Tracey
Clive and I would both like to say a huge thank you for the last four weeks learning the Waltz. We really felt last night that we had come a long way from when we started with you. We both felt that having the four weeks all in one block was so great and gave us the opportunity to really concentrate on one dance.
I think you must have put a lot of thought and time into all this and thank you on behalf of Clive and myself for that. I hope all the regular, loyal dancers continue to support you as well. You work so hard to make our evenings fun and exciting and for that we thank you. I must admit when I first started I felt shy but have gained confidence through getting to know you so well and being able to have fun which makes the evening such a great night out.
With love Clive and Di SEPT 2011
Thank you Eileen.
I would never have done it without your encouragement and support.
Regards, Clive. SEPT 2011
Thank you, a dancer I will never be but do enjoy trying very much - they make it look easy on Strictly, as do you and Tracie floating around the floor :)
Jx AUG 2011
Subject: Thank You!
for a fabulous 4 weeks of waltz - I love the dance. The waltz has been a tonic I've needed
So many thanks. S-J AUG 2011
Very friendly & relaxed atmosphere, nice venue. Eileen breaks down every movement, making it easy to learn. You don't need to go with a partner!!!! Good choice of music too. Gabi APR 2011
Just wanted to say thanks for the Paso class this Monday. I really enjoyed it and it left me with a big grin on my face when I left probably more so than any class I've been to any time recently. I though it was at about the right level for what I was hoping for, each set of 8 steps was reasonably straightforward to learn, and the biggest problem was trying to remember the sequence when stringing them all together at the end.
The other 4 people I came with (all regularly do general ballroom classes - I've done about 10 in total but don't do it regularly) seemed to all really enjoy it too (2 of them had already done a basic lesson in the past).
Thanks again for the lesson - very glad I came - great fun :-D
Regards, Stewart,..APR 2011
I'm really enjoying the lessons and everyone agrees the teaching is great - we seem to learn such a lot but it's also great fun. So thank you!
Best wishes Carolyn MAR 2011
Both Clive and I never realised when we first came to your classes how much we would enjoy it.
We have had a whale of a time - been overwhelmed more times than we can remember and every week have a "post mortem" in the car on our journey back to Salisbury. However, we find no problem with the distance although we are dog tired by the time we get home but happy. It makes us realise how little we had learnt prior to coming to fun2dance.
Finally, and most importantly a special thank you to you and Tracey for making us feel very welcome. We are beginning to relax more now - I know Clive is very often the naughty boy but that is Clive in everything he does.
We are looking forward to the Paso Doble next week - it sounds fun and I neither or us have the faintest idea how to do it.
Kind regards Diane and Clive MAR 2011
Thoroughly enjoying the weekly Ballroom and Latin classes and look forward to going each week - whatever the weather! Eileen and team are brilliant and make the classes fun which aids learning. TeresaB MAR 2011
Hi Eileen You beat me to it – I was going to email you today – to thank you, Tracey and Sarah Jane for a lovely dance – Richard and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Many thanks Naomi MAR 2011
Lovely classes with a very dedicated and patient teacher. The lesson structure (1 week latin, 1 week ballroom, and then re-cap both in the third week) really helps me retain the steps and techniques. The tea dance last year was also a fantastic chance to practice everything is a fun, social setting. Strongly recommend Eileen and the team! Keep dancing. : ) Amy MAR 2011
We have not only thoroughly enjoyed these classes but have made terrific progress from being complete beginners. Eileen is an excellent teacher with the patience of a saint! Great crowd, very friendly atmosphere, good location - see you on Monday Sue and Alan FEB 2011
Hi Eileen had to let you know what a fab evening Roy and i had last night. The food was great and the dancing was superb.
See you Monday Janice FEB 2011
Hi Eileen Richard and I wanted to thank you, Tracie and Sarah-Jane for a really enjoyable time. I have always wanted to dance but felt I couldn’t dance, so it was a real joy to feel able to dance, albeit at a basic level, I loved it. It was a real ‘scary’ thing for both of us to come to dance classes, especially at our age and inhibitions about dancing, but finally we have done it! All our practicing at home has been crucial – to be able to remember the steps, or at least most of them. I have been surprised at what a good exercise workout dance is. Many thanks for your patience and kindness to both of us. Naomi DEC 2010
Just to say I'm thoroughly enjoying your ballroom dancing classes - well done.
Best wishes Teresa NOV 2010
i really enjoyed the classes, brilliant teaching and a good crowd of people.
thanks, kate NOV 2010
I enjoy your classes and like your style of teaching. I haven't been able to attend due to work commitments and travel problems (I live near Basingstoke and don't have a car!) Hope to return to your classes soon. – Sarah NOV 2010
To give you some feedback I thought the pace of the lesson was excellent and it was a sense of achievement to put some steps together by the end and at least feel like we were dancing. You have a difficult job to please everyone but I for one (and my partner) really enjoyed it.
Have a good weekend and I will look forward to the class on Monday,
Thanks Natalie SEPT 2010
