AWARD WINNING DANCE TRIPS
TO THE DANCE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
For the past 5 years we have been flying dancers 7000 miles away to fulfil their dreams, living, training and dancing in the dance capital of the world Los Angeles. Since we started these trips we have flown over 150 dancers to LA to take classes at some of the worlds best dance studios whilst living in the heart of Hollywood.
If you are ready to change your life, we are ready to take you.
SO WHAT'S THE TRIP?
HEART : LA is a unique package holiday designed for dancers and is the only one of its kind in the UK. We have listened to hundreds of dancers over the years and have been able to tailor make a vacation that ticks all the right boxes.
The trips are designed to help dancers make the absolute most of their time in LA which is why the trip includes two unlimited dance passes at two top studios of your choice. This means you get to pick what styles and genres of dance you train in, what classes you go to and what level those classes are.
All of the complicated work is done for you (flights, accommodation, transfers, class passes etc) which means all you need to do is turn up and make the most of your time in the glorious Californian sunshine.
The trips are run for either two weeks in April or four weeks in August and both contain everything you need to make sure you have the greatest time possible staying in the incredible arts district of North Hollywood.
The trip is for you to get what you need, which is why there is no set schedule throughout the whole vacation. Giving you all the time in the world to do the things you want to do, see the things you want to see, eat the food you want to eat and train whenever you want to.
WHO'S IT FOR?
Anyone with a passion for dance and who is excited to explore such an incredible city. The trip attracts like minded dancers from all over the UK in a variety of styles and it’s so nice to see so many new friendships being made every single year. There is no set dance ability required to attend the trip. *Minimum age is 16

WHAT OTHERS SAY
Meg Slater - Wales
LA - The city of angels, is as incredible as you can imagine. It pushes you as a person and a dancer - you get out of it what you put in, and you will learn more about yourself than you will be prepared for.
Matt (HEART WORK'S DIRECTOR) is incredible, he leaves nothing unknown. You want to know where the best burger is.. he will direct you to in n out, want to know what to do on a day where you're not dancing, he will give you advice on what there is to do in LA for your liking. He took us as a whole group up Griffith Park to watch the sunset over the city - and it truely was one of the most special places that has taken a piece of my heart.
The way he organises his trips are brilliant, he looks after everyone - yes, we are effectively out there on our own, but any problems and he is there to help anyone out as much as he possibly can. From visiting Santa Monica and Venice Beach, going on trips to Universal and Warner Bros set tour there really is something for everyone.
From this trip, i can hand on heart say i have made a friend for life in Matt. To really understand just what LA will do for you just have to take the plunge and go, and there is no one better to go with, from 10 years experience of going there, there wasn't any question Matt couldn't answer.
Dancing - there are so many classes for everyone, to do as many as possible or just a few, you will come out learning something new and exciting. Whether it be a new style or being able to take class with choreographers you have dreamt of for years, LA makes it possible.
I can 100% say i'll be going back in the future, and 100% it will be with HEART WORK.
Abbie Sawtell - Essex
As cliché as it sounds, LA literally reignited my love and passion for dancing and reminded me why I trained so hard at college to have this as my career.
The classes were challenging but so rewarding, nothing like the classes I've ever taken in London where it matters more what you're wearing. Everyone is there for themselves to work hard and train.
I have travelled and seen a lot of the world and LA is one of the few places I felt at home in within the first week, there is always something to do and explore and with the help of Matts recommendations I got to see and do some incredible things.
I can't thank Matthew enough for organising this trip and I will 10000% be joining next years trip too.
