Location and practicalities
The school has excellent facilities. It is in a rural setting opposite the Harewood estate approximately 3 miles north of the Leeds city boundary on the Harrogate road. It is easily accessible from all directions using the motorway network.
The committee hopes very much that you will be able to join us and we look forward to seeing you dancing with us.
