Across the Room

Diner Dances

Our Dinner Dances are a fantastic
way to meet new and interesting
single people whilst enjoying
delicious food and great conversation.

Dinner Dances

Dinner Dances are held at picturesque Hotels and Country Estates throughout Essex, Herts, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambs, Kent, Berkshire and London. They provide our single members with a perfect environment to mix, mingle, make new friends and find that special someone.

The entertainment throughout the evening varies from month to month to keep our singles events exciting and these include Bands, Discos, Tribute Acts or Live Singers. The dance floor is always full until the early hours. We do not have traditional ballroom dancing at Across the Room, just slow dances and disco, nothing complicated!

Are there table moves?

Yes, the gentlemen move after the starter and the main course. This keeps the dynamics of the table alive and the conversation flowing!

Some gentleman of course, do not wish to move as they find themselves in such attractive, interesting company but there is plenty of opportunity after the meal to mix and mingle and get to know more fellow guests “Across the Room!”.

We also have Dance Cards on the tables; you will find it’s just a bit of fun and a great ice-breaker. Please fill in your dance card as you will find that the dance floor fills in an instant as soon as the first dance is announced. The format of the evening is the first six dances are slow and then followed by a mixture of party music and romantic classics.

After dinner you can take a stroll around the grounds, relax in the luxurious lounges or hit the dance floor. We have a mixture of bands, duos, various tributes acts and discos.

If you’d like to hear more about Dance Cards or the structure of the evening, please call Eleanor!

Who attends?

We strive to achieve equal numbers of ladies and gentleman at our Dinner Dances. These singles events are always well attended and attract 180 to 250 members depending on the venue. There is always a varied age range at our singles events as we have members from 30 plus. However, our singles events are meticulously organised and you will always be seated within your own age group.

I'm coming alone, will I be met on arrivaI?

Absolutely! Please do not hesitate to come to your first singles event alone. You will receive a telephone call before the event to relax you and let you know that we will be there to meet you on arrival. All guests are met at reception and introduced to other single members straight away so there is no need to worry, you will soon be enjoying interesting, stimulating company. We always have many new members at every event and you will find Across the Room Dating to be a friendly, caring organisation.
