Sprawling for 7 miles along the southern Dorset coastline, Bournemouth is one of the largest seaside resorts in Britain, famous for its grand seafront and broad sandy beaches.

It's part Victorian resort, part modern commercial centre and part mass-market tourist holiday park, where day-trippers and holiday makers  rub shoulders with stag and hen parties. Harmony seems to preside amongst Bournemouth's temporary residents though and it’s an atmospheric introduction to the world of the British beach holiday, with plenty  to keep you occupied, including sunbathing, shopping and water sports by day, and a wealth of bars, clubs and shows to explore by night.

Say yes to a fantastic opportunity to spend a revitalising weekend in Bournemouth immersed in the hottest dance-fitness craze, Zumba® . You'll enjoy a high-energy daily schedule of Zumba® lessons with some of the UK's best teachers, evening entertainment and time to enjoy the local sights and dance the night away in a social group of like-minded people - a weekend by the sea with a difference!

Staying half board in the comfort of the 3* Durley Dean Hotel & Spa, a historic Victorian townhouse hotel situated close to the beaches of Bournemouth, you will enjoy at least 5 hours of high energy Zumba® classes, evening entertainment and the opportunity to explore the delights of Bournemouth.
