BEGINNERS CLASSES

New members are vitally important for the success of our dance school and we warmly welcome new members to our classes.  You do not need to have a partner to come along to our Beginners Classes. 

We have two new beginners classes starting in September 2021 for Beginners to Ballroom and Latin. You can choose the one most suitable for you or do both!  These classes will cover the basics of nearly all the Latin and Ballroom dances (please see below).  In addition, new members are welcome to join our Bronze Ballroom Class (starting on Friday 3rd September 2021 at 6.45pm), together with our Speciality Classes on Fridays at 8.45pm - 9.15pm. 

You will need to complete a simple registration form, please click here.

We encourage all participants in our classes to change partners regularly, that way you learn much quicker and benefit by learning from other people and form a new friendship circle.  If you would prefer to stay fixed with one partner, that is fine although please let your teacher know.
