With well over 40 years of dancing experience, we can ensure our service cannot be matched for providing the best quality in Ballroom entertainment. We also provide Latin American, Sequence and line dancing music, all brought to you with a dancer's ear for tempos and suiting all levels of dancers. As a further development in our dance career Dave and Diane qualified as Associate Ballroom and Latin American Dance Teachers with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance (ISTD) so you are in safe and professional hands for your ballroom needs and functions.
Apart from our public social dances, we have provided bespoke ballroom services to a wide and varied range of past and current clients including award ceremonies and annual Christmas dinner and dances for the Croydon Boxing Club; annual award ceremonies for both the Croydon and Bellingham Bowling Clubs; dinner dances at the Purley and Chipstead Sports Clubs; afternoon dances for the Cubitt organisation at The Platform and Sadler's Wells; dance classes, quarterly seasonal dances and tea dances for Age UK at various locations (including two with Len Goodman, Age UK Ambassador, at the Yalding Health and Well-being centre) and weekly dance classes for LB Lewisham.
We set the standards that others try to achieve. We won't waste your dancing time with unnecessary or prolonged bus stops and snowball dances, if the audience doesn't want them. We play for the audience, not ourselves and won't repeat dances to waste your dancing time. We don't do the norm, you can always tell us what you want as we don't stick to a set programme.
Whether you require Dave's Dances for a tea dance, social evening dance, dinner dance, corporate function or award ceremony, you can expect an excellent bespoke service at an affordable price. We work throughout North London, South East London, Surrey, Sussex, Hertfordshire and Kent but will also travel a little further depending on the job, so get in touch to find out more.

We are also available for hire for your private events and all dance celebrations (in Ballroom, disco or a mixture). We do not subcontract under any circumstances, so when you book "Dave's Dances" you will always get Dave and his wife Diane, who are both qualified ISTD Ballroom and Latin American Dance Teachers.
Our forte is providing a mixture of Ballroom/Disco music for those who invite dancers and non-dancers to their events so we can cater for all needs and abilities. We are happy to provide music for your special occasions: weddings, anniversaries, etc. predominantly for ballroom dancers and their families and if you want, we are happy to teach ‘icebreaker’ dances, line or party dances to get everyone on their feet.
What sets us apart from our competitors is our personal attention to detail. We listen to you and play the music and dances that you like and won’t play what you don’t want! We cover London and the Home Counties, so please do get in touch if you require our services, or even just to discuss your function and what we can offer.
