Our Beginners Courses are tailored for those who have never danced before.
We teach a mixture of Ballroom and Latin
American dances. Beginners will learn the very basics of:
Cha Cha Cha
Rock and Roll
As pupils become more confident we teach more variations in these dances and gradually learn from the following:
There is no set length of time for how long our classes will run. Pupils stay with us until they feel they have reached the level they are happy with. Some of our advanced level pupils have been with us for over 4 years.

Our Summer Event and Christmas Dance are "black tie and posh frock". For gentlemen this can be a dinner suit or a dark suit with a tie.
Classes cost £7.50 per person per class. Each class lasts an hour.
Classes are on a "pay as you go" basis so you pay at the beginning of each class you attend.

We have a Beginners Class starting on 4th January which is now full. We don't have another Beginners Classes scheduled at the moment.
If you are interested in joining a future Beginners Class see our Classes page. If you want to join a class it's important you register with us because we normally fill a new class from our waiting list so we rarely advertise.
We only offer private lessons to pupils from our classes who want a bit of extra tuition so private lessons are not available as an alternative to classes.
This is not something we offer.
