ALL ABOUT LUX

 

The LUX dance weekend first launched in 2009 as a partnership between Utopia, Ceroc Newbury and Ceroc Thames Valley, and for the last 10 years has gained an enviable reputation as one of the best weekend dance events in the UK. It's also the most flexible with numerous booking options that allow you to tailor your event experience to your exact requirements.

This year we've redesigned it to concentrate more on what people have loved about the event - which has always been the Sunday classes and the now legendary early afternoon to 6am freestyle. But we've not compromised on the amount of dance space, selection of freestyle genres, teachers or selection of classes AND we've added in a great 2 room Bank Holiday freestyle on the Monday.

Doors open at 11.30am on Sunday 25th August with classes running from midday - 7pm across 2 rooms, and freestyle starting at 3.30pm and continuing until 6am across 4 rooms. BUT it doesn't finish there...

On Monday 26th, freestyles continues from 1pm - 7pm across 2 rooms, to include S'Funk, Ceroc Freestyle and Utopia/SILC.

For those of you who decide to combine an overnight stay you don't have to check-out of your room until 4pm on Monday so there is plenty of time to have breakfast, take a swim or even take a private dance lesson before you hit the freestyle dance-floor again.

 

Often dancers will have a favourite night on a dance weekender, with one or two nights being compromised due to exhaustion (or extreme partying!) This weekender is one night only so that you can pack all of your amazing dance mojo into one night and 2 awesome days.

We still want dancers to have some choice, so unlike other dance weekenders, there isn't only one option. You can book just one night of freestyle, workshops only (Delegate), workshops and freestyle on Sunday night, Monday only, and of course combine an overnight stay. You can book an overnight stay on a single occupancy basis, twin, double or triple and if you really want to push the boat out you can book a Suite.

Dining at LUX.
There are two restaurants; Rowans for more formal dining and The Keller for a more casual dining experience. You can also order from the bar menu and eat in the comfortable lounge, or if you are resident, you could even order from the room service menu.

Overnight hotel stays include the Coppid Beech's extensive buffet breakfast in Rowans which includes both hot and cold choices as well as healthy options too! In previous years a residential package included all meals, but we have given the choice back to you to decide what you want to eat and when.
