HF Holidays already has a great team of expert dance leaders running their immensely popular dance holidays but are extremely excited to add the expertise of glitterball champions Karen Hardy and Flavia Cacace.

Guests can choose to take part in a wide range of dance styles including Ballroom and Latin with options to suit different abilities. Other dance breaks focus on Folk, Circle, Sequence or Line dancing as well as Playford Style – the type of dancing seen in TV series such as Pride and Prejudice and Poldark.


Flavia Cacace is known as being one of the UK's leading Ballroom/Latin and Argentine Tango performers. Having spent years making her name in the amateur dancing world, winning numerous titles and championships she went on to star in the BBC's 'Strictly Come Dancing' for over 7 years, capturing the hearts of the nation with showstopping tango routines.

Guests of all abilities can enjoy a weekend of dance with HF Holidays' instructors and then enjoy a small group masterclass with Flavia. The emphasis will be on learning new steps and improving technique in the comfort of their country house in Malham, which comes complete with its own ballroom.

Prices start from £399 per person for 3 nights full board accommodation, at HF Holidays country house Newfield Hall in Malham on Friday 29 May 2020.


Guests will also be able to join Guest Dancer Flavia Cacace during the HF Holidays Mind & Body Retreat at their country house at Selworthy, Somerset.  The Dance High Intensity Interval Training (DanceHIIT) sessions, led by Flavia, are designed to give a high intensity full body workout to burn fat, build muscle and enhance fitness – all to music!  It's a fun and enjoyable way to exercise and burn calories.
