“What can I say youve gone and done it again! I love dancing in the main hall...I always get on the the beat of the music ..it makes my dances that bit better. Also loving the positions of the tv screens in the main hall for the workshops. Please leave them there!
Enjoyed a good opportunity to practice life sketching the WCS workshop too.
My 2nd Warmwell...Even better this time round as I was with my lovely lady ...it was even more special as Warmwell last year is where we first met! classicly on the dance floor!
A lot of my favourites in one place! Can't ask for better! Lovely to see everyone and Thank you ladies for the dances too! See you next year Matthew.”

“For a fabulous fun weekender again....just had a really great time....please thank Gaza and all your crew for making it a blast.
Realised when it unpacked I’d brought my feedback form home! Duh.... anyways all it said was everything was great, the gender balance you achieved was perfect and doesn’t need tweaking, Lee and Dawn’s double trouble and line dance classes were fabulous...and so much fun too, Lee’s chat is just hilarious...and finally Ruth Ferguson, the shoe lady from Weymouth was really really helpful... Friday night I saw a pair of dance shoes I really liked but she didn’t have my size. She said she’d check her stock at home and if she had my size she’d bring them in on Saturday....sadly she didn’t have my size. But she rang her daughter to get her to check her stock & her daughter had my size, delivered it to her Mum Ruth, then Sunday afternoon Ruth rang me to say she was sitting in the sellers area with my new dance shoes! & they fitted...I wore them all Sunday night...and no sore toes!! That’s def a first all round for me! So hope the above can be taken into account when you go through your feedback forms. I had some really loves dances this weekend and made some new dance partner friends too so thanks again for everything you do to make this such a super fun dance weekend. Lots of love Col and big Hugz...which you missed out on on Monday when I left ...coz you coz being a very busy bee! “ Chrissy x
“Thank you for another fantastic weekend, we all enjoyed every minute of it! Cilla”
“Best dance weekender l ever been on in 20 years of dancing. Thank you Colin and a massive effort from Gazza for great music and doing brilliant job of making the fancy dress hilarious, all Colin's helpers Tracey, Steve B and so many more. Lee Perrott who took the pool party was incredibly funny. It was like an American Football match in the pool with no prisoners taken.
Sonya Stephens for some amazing dances and talking me into doing dance with a stranger. Great teachers ( Loved Rene's Tango class), excellent accommodation, delicious food. Awesome Dancing' Plus everyone was so friendly. Thanks Cliff and Amanda for letting me in on you super party. Definitely coming back next year 🕺💃😊 — with Sonya Stephens. Neil”
“What a brilliant weekend away. Thanks to Colin and Gazza (MJRoc). Few pictures from Warmwell lodge and fancy dress night 2019. Lydia”
“What a fantastic 3 days, and thank you everyone who helped make my first warmwell such a memorable experience. My shoulder injury obviously meant dancing was quite different to normal. Huge thanks to Jill and Pam for your teaching some lefty moves, and huge thanks to all the wonderful ladies for your patience in learning these with me, particularly Sarah Hawsham, Tammy Barter and Karen Scott. Can't wait till next year, when I'll be back with 2 working arms. For now, I need some sleep. Chris”
“it was a fab weekender. Thanks for the dances, being a crucial part of the quiz team (joint second was great!) and your quick reflexes when I slipped off of my seat! Doh! Bring on Warmwell 2020! Looking forward to it already! :) Tammy”
“My first Warmwell and I thoroughly enjoyed it (Despite being quite sick). I only got to enjoy about 7 hours dancing the whole weekend and the pool party (suffered after).
Thank you to the ENTIRE MJROC team for an outrageously brilliant weekender. Colin and the team worked endlessly to make it superb.🧡🧡 Amazing Lodge too! Accommodation outstanding. My roomies... even better. Couldn't have asked for better Haven Huggers.Andrea.”
“4th year for me. Still loving it. Favourite time... Daytime dancing. In no particular order... i've watched some really skilled dancers who inspire me and really got into the wcs workshop superbly taught by Catriona (really great workshop). My friends Andrea Francis , Jeff Dodd and I had an absolute ball with double trouble. Awesome crew (loved watching them go about their business with such military precision). Danced to me favourite.. make me smile..Steve Harley and finished it with jump around (please, Mr DJ, never try and find a cover version of these classics). :) Still one of the best dance Weekenders yet invented. I hope the site owners can be persuaded to invest in creating some bigger spaces. Desmond”

“My first but definitely not last Warmwell. The friendliest people, the most relaxed, fun and at the same time inspiring teachers, fabulous sets, amazing dancers, beautiful lodges.....
Even your dance with a stranger competition was low key and FUN (unlike others I have experienced). Thank you so much Colin and all. See you next year! Donna”

The MJ Roc staff were amazing, very helpful and lovely dancers. Credit also to the Park staff. Julie”
“Warmwell... what can we say? A week later & we still have a warm fuzzy glow (& only minor dark shadows under our eyes!).
Happy 10th Anniversary to a wonderful event. 🥂 It’s always a pleasure to be a part of this weekender, whether as dancers (as we were first, before we were invited to teach), teachers - or both!!
Thank you for all the kind and positive feedback on our classes 📝💯 We pride ourselves on a high standard of technical teaching (which we know isn’t everyone’s cup of tea ☕️) but for those who engage with our classes, your feedback reassures us that you think we are doing the right thing in pushing our students & making you better dancers whilst giving you a new challenge 💪🏼👣
As ever, a huge thank you & your wonderful crew who look after us so brilliantly. Your endless energy & passion makes the event so special. It was also a pleasure to be out on the social floor and both of us had some really fantastic dances across all three rooms over the weekend. 💃🏼🕺🏼
Sarah really enjoyed judging the Fancy Dress and it was fabulous to see so many entries. 🏆🏅 She’ll never watch The Sound of Music in the same way again though!! 😯😵🤭
We have so much fun at these events that we forget to take any photos of our classes but we’ve found a cheeky little video of the wonderful Blue Room 💙 whilst the brilliant Kevin Hyde was DJing. (You might recognise the moves from our Advanced class! 🤫😉)
Congratulations Warmwell. Here’s to the next 10 years!! 🥳🤩🥰 Matt & Sarah.”
“Absolutely loved every minute of my first Warmwell. Thank you and see you next year xRuth”
"thank you so much for a wonderful weekend - I needed to leave early but had a fabulous 2 days. I can honestly say that the gender balance was spot on and I can't thank you enough. It's a long way to come if the balance is wrong. I know you have taken a lot of criticism but it is I'm sure appreciated by both men and woman a like. Also the accommodation is first class along with the organisation of everything that went on. You and your team must work tirelessly to make this happen and it is appreciated. I would like to thank all the men that danced with me - it was a real pleasure and I am hoping to return next year. Rose”
