About us

THE COMPANY

We have been in the dance business for over 21 years, and are here to promote fun, education, & fitness in dance, regardless of your age. We understand how important it is to have everything at your fingertips, and hopefully, you will find this website clutter free, very helpful and completely up to date.

Over the years we have gained a great reputation for delivering quality and good customer service. We offer a wide range of quality venues and hotels across the country, with dates and prices to suit every pocket. We are always searching for good partner hotels to work for our Line Dance Weekends, so if you know of any please let us know.

We attribute our success to you… after all, if hundreds of dancers did not place their trust in us and book our dance breaks, and then rebook, we would not be in a position to offer this choice. So thank you so much to everyone for their continued support.

 

THE FOUNDER

Hi guys, thought I would give you an insight to my accidental career, I come from a background of 22 years of dance, I have been choreographing, Judging, DJ-ing, Event organising and teaching for the past 20 years, all over the world. I have taught Line Dance, Swing, Ballroom & Latin.

I have travelled 22 countries and have helped 11,700 people with their dance holidays in my 21-years of business.

My career started at age 17, and I must firstly thank my sister for my accidental career. When I was a kid I enjoyed playing out with other kids, computer games and TV! what kid didn't ;-)

1995

Roll on a few years and I was 16, just left school started an apprenticeship in Carpentry & Joinery, and I clearly remember it was summer time and my sister wanted to start dancing, but she couldn't go by herself as she needed a chaperone, guess who got nominated, poor old me! What I didn't know was that this was the making of me as a person, and the start of an incredible journey into the unknown world of dance, travel and a whole lot more!.
She will kill me for posting some family pictures lol, below is a picture of me and my sister Charlotte on a sandy beach!

Anyway back to the story. After a few weeks my sister gave up the dancing, and I was gutted! I was enjoying the music, the people, and of course the dancing - it was flipping amazing. What I didn't realise is I was good at dance and after a few months passed I could not get enough of learning different types of dance and was going on more workshops and learning so much, it was incredible.

1996

At age 17 I decided I wanted to teach dance, I absolutely loved the idea of doing something I had a passion for, so I opened dance classes right across Cheshire and North Wales teaching all ages at all levels. within the first 12 months I had 5 regular weekly classes, and was organising 24 events a year.

1998

About 2 years into my dance career I wanted more and really wanted to get in to choreography, so I did, and this was the start of working aboard and over the years I have travelled to at least 22 countries, what an amazing experience I have had doing something I love and getting paid.

2000

As I became more successful and was travelling more and more, and eventually I was winning awards for my work, I was totally blown away and loved every minute, and even had the opportunity to perform in the closing ceremony of Manchester’s Commonwealth Games.
This year was extra special as my mum and dad decided to have another child, however they ended up being twins (they are now 18) OMG how time flies.

2006

This is where my career took a slight change in direction, I was still doing classes, but instead of travelling the world for workshops I decided to start a dance travel agency, to be honest I didn't know where I was going with it and didn't expect it to grow into the one the biggest dance companies across the UK and Europe.

2017

As always I contact each person to ask them questions about their holiday, as all I want to do is make it better each and every time. I will always listen and if I can I will always make change. Last few years many have asked me to arrange their personal holiday, unfortunately, I couldn't because I wasn't ATOL protected, but it got me thinking, if I can provide amazing dance holidays then I can provide amazing travel anywhere!

2018

Mi Travel was born on the back of customers demand, so Dance Fever Holidays will run as a separate company however Mi Travel is there to help you with ALL your travel needs, I cant wait to help you with your next holiday.
