Reviews for Leeds hen activities

Dirty Dancing Dance Class

Lovely fun tutor, all had a fun time. Disappointed that we didn’t do the Dirty Dancing lift at the end. We were told by hotel receptionist that the tutor would come and fetch us from the bar as we arrived early and tutor was not at the hotel when we arrived. Missed 15 minutes of our class as tutor didn’t come for us. Very enjoyable experience.
