Evenings are drawing in!

As we head into a new month we find ourselves venturing out in the dark as the evenings start to draw in!  Perfect time of the year to learn to Ballroom and Latin American Dance.   All classes are doing well.   Well done to everyone who have been attending and are now managing to Waltz, Quickstep around the floor.   We are looking forward to building on these dances with all pupils as well as introducing other dances.  The festive season is almost upon us!  There will be plenty of Christmas and New Year Eve dances to enjoy.   Ballroom and Latin American Dancing is a wonderful social life - there is usually a dance most weekends somewhere or other.  If you fancy attending a dance speak to us we usually know where the dances are.  If you are still thinking about joining us it is never too late - contact us or just turn up!

A great start to our Ballroom and Latin American Dance Classes.   We taught  a total of 94 people last week.   Most of them had never danced before and it was great to watch them Waltz and Cha Cha Cha the night away.  Each evening was extremely enjoyable and great fun.  Welcome to all new comers to our classes.  Looking forward to this week!  If you are still not sure or missed the first week do not worry it is never to late to join in.  Give us a call or just pop along.  Looking forward to seeing everyone this coming week.

Well done to all the new beginners who joined us on Tuesday evening - a very successful evening.  Looking forward to seeing you all again next Tuesday.  A most enjoyable evening was had by all.  Was really great to see pass pupils as well - great to catch up with you all.  It is not too late to join us if you wish.   Make this dance season your year to dance and as they say on Strictly Come Dancing 'Keep Dancing'

Tuesday, 13 September 2016

Great start to our classes!   One of the best beginners ballroom and latin american classes we have ever run!  So good to watch you all walk through the door, and then watch as you all Waltz the night away - well done to you all!  A really enjoyable evening.  Remember that if any of you cannot make a Monday one week we are at Playford Village Hall on the Thursday evening if you wish to come along there instead, or perhaps you would like extra tuition then please join us.   The ballroom and latin american classes will run parallel with each other.   Another Well Done to everyone!

Also for those of you who could not make the first evening - it is not too late to join us.  Just turn up!

Sunday, 11 September 2016

Please remember, if you are coming to our new Ballroom and Latin American Dance classes this week, to bring a drink along with you and wear comfortable footwear and clothing.   For those of you who are intending to join us at Kesgrave High School we will be in a hall at the front of the building. As you enter the school gate please turn right - there will be signs to direct you.  One of us will be at the door to greet you!

We are both looking forward to seeing everyone at Boreham Village Hall in Chelmsford, we have had a lot of inquiries from new dancers as well as many pass dancers.  All are welcome!

For all classes please try to arrive 5/10 minutes before the start of class as first nights always take a little longer admitting everyone.  

Don't forget that you can come and enjoy the whole evening at no extra cost.  Improvers can stay after their class if they wish to join in with the social at the end of the evening.

We are both getting very excited for the launch of our new classes - the first being tomorrow Monday 12th September at Kesgrave High School, followed by Tuesday 13th at Boreham Village Hall and finally Thursday 15th at Playford Village Hall.

New Dancers

Just a quick reminder, that if you are joining us in September for our new Ballroom and Latin American Dance Classes please come along to your first class 5 to 10 minutes earlier if possible.   This extra 5 to 10 minutes will give us time to greet you.  Please also try to remember to bring a drink and to wear comfortable clothing and footwear, trainers are not usually suitable for dancing as they do not allow you to glide across the floor.  Either myself (Sharon) or Graham will be on the door to welcome you.  We are both really looking forward to seeing old and new faces.

Single Ballroom and Latin American Dancers

Are you single, but still wish to learn to Ballroom Dance?  We do cater for single persons who wish to dance.  We will try to find partners for you where possible.   If you are single and wish to come to our classes please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate you.

ISTD Teachers Congress

After a very nice relaxing holiday in Canada, we returned to spend a weekend at Worthing for the ISTD teachers congress.  A lot of new steps, moves and technique were tried out and tested.  Like all things in life Ballroom and Latin American dancing also changes and moves on.  Moves and steps become more fashionable whilst others are popped on the 'back boiler' for a while, but the overall basics of Ballroom and Latin American Dance remain the same.  Looking forward to passing some of the new ideas onto our pupils in September.

The Style of Dance

What is the style of dance?

In my opinion the most important aspect of any dance is the communication between partners, without the interaction between dance partners, no matter how good one person may be, there is no dance.  This especially applies to dances like Foxtrot or Rumba.  The romance in Rumba and the nostalgic atmosphere in the Foxtrot are what make these dances so perfect.  Technique, interpretation, timing etc are all very important as well but without that connection between couples the whole character of the dance does not shine through.   Remember to dance for each other not for ones self.
Advertising is now being sorted.   Keep a look out for our leaflets coming through your door, and email reminder for all of you who have so kindly given us your e-mail address.  Local papers and village magazines will also be carrying our advert.   A huge advertising campaign has been arranged for Chelmsford, Woodbridge and Kesgrave areas.

Facebook Page

Our facebook page is now up and running, still under construction at the moment.   To take a look and maybe join click on the facebook tab at the top of the page.
To keep up to date with all latest techniques, dance steps/moves etc we are planning to attend the ISTD teachers conference at Worthing, Sussex in July.  Being taught by some of the top dancers in the UK enables us to pass on up to date methods and dances to our pupils.  Like fashion dance also changes over time, so a regular attendance at events like the congress is extremely important.  New music will also be purchased here - so if you are one of our 'pass' pupils you can look forward to new beats and sounds!

Rocking the night away!

'Rock and Roll' is here to stay - or so they say!   We are therefore planning to add this dance into our classes.  So if this is something you always wanted to learn then please come along and join the fun.
