Under New Management

About Us

A Brief History

Learn more about our dance school

Rendezvous for Dancing was established in 1960 making us Derby’s longest established dance school.  Originally we were based  at the old ABC Cinema on London Road, Derby.  We enjoyed 37 years in this historic location and in 1997 when the cinema was sold on, we re-established ourselves at the Beaconsfield Club, Derby. 15 years later, in 2012 we moved to The Sherwin Club and with an extension to the dance floor this has been our home ever since.  It provides off road parking, a bar for soft and hot drinks, and more importantly, a welcoming atmosphere.

As Christine retired on 30th May 2018, Charlotte is now running the school and so the Rendezvous begins a new chapter.

Charlotte Phillips

IDTA Licentiate Qualified Ballroom Teacher

I started dancing at the age of 13 at the Rendezvous, and quickly began helping out in classes and partnering individuals.  Within a couple of months I began taking medals and then started to compete, which I did for a few years but my heart was always in teaching and helping others become the best dancers they could be.

Ballroom dancing, like all aspects of life is continually evolving. I bring a fresh new attitude to the school and with almost 13 years dance experience, I can offer a modern approach to teaching.


Hope to see you at the NEW Rendezvous soon
