Price Changes for 2015

There will be a new schedule of fees which will apply from the beginning of 2015. Apologies for any inconvenience, this is something that CDT needs to do in order to be able to provide the best we can for our members. We highly recommend considering buying Dance Cards in 2015 as they are able to provide the best rate per dance class and can be used over six months, so there is no pressure to come every week if this is not possible.
