Class Details:

Absolute Beginners Class (8.15 to 9.15 pm):

Do you have two left feet? Have you never danced before? Are you nervous about taking that first step? Then this is the class for you. This ballroom and Latin American dance class is aimed at dancers who have either never danced before or very little. We will go at the pace of the class, so there is no need to worry if you do not quite 'get the dance'. Courses will run for a period of approximately 6 weeks, concentrating on one dance at a time before moving onto the next. In this class, we will aim to learn a basic routine for a particular dance. Concentrating on the very basics will enable dancers to feel confident enough to go out dancing socially, at a wedding, or on a cruise ship. Basic technique will be covered, i.e., footwork (heels and toes), hold, alignments, and timing. Once each dance has been completed at this level with confidence, we are able to offer further instruction in the Beginners Plus Class on a Monday evening or via a one-on-one lesson if preferred.

Advance - Variation Class (6.15 - 7.15pm):

Our variation class is for dancers who are confident with figures and terminology of all 10 dances within the Ballroom and Latin American genre. If you would like to join this class, please contact us to discuss your individual abilities and requirements. Dancers who already attend our classes will be asked to attend when we feel they are of the required standard. We will use standard figures to produce variations, so a good knowledge is required.  All technique will be taught, including sway and CBM (Contra Body Movement). All variations may be used as dancers wish.

Improvers  - Technique Class (7.15 - 8.15pm):

Our technique class is open to all dancers working towards or who are of the standard of a bronze or above dancer. While we are able to offer medals and examinations twice a year, you do not necessarily have to take the examination to join this class. This is a good class for you if you would like to improve your dancing by using the correct technique. All 10 dances will be covered. Please contact us for further information..
