This list shows those slots with John which are known to be available at this time. The further ahead ones reflect slots not used for regular lessons, so some additional ones may be available nearer the time.
More slots are available with Linda, Michael and Nika (not listed here).

Whilst we try to keep this page up to date, we can't unfortunately guarantee that any slot listed here is still available, sorry!

One-off slots available 
Last updated: 17th November 2019, 8:30pm

Saturday and Sunday slots are initially reserved for competitors or those who travel longer distances, and most slots are consequentially 2 hour slots. If you are local and a non-competitive couple, by all means ask about an available slot, but please don't be offended if I hold it back until near the date.

Slots which are possibly available are in maroon (these have been offered but are waiting a reply, or the day may be under restructure).
