Ballroom & Latin Classes

Our Ballroom and Latin classes combine Ballroom, Latin American, Salsa, Rock ‘n’ Roll, and run Monday to Friday evenings for all different levels from complete beginner to international competitor!

The classes are run with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, and our licensed bar helps with that! You will learn alongside people of similar age and ability, and we are very careful to avoid making any situation uncomfortable for you.

You will begin with Waltz, Cha Cha, Quickstep and Salsa giving you a good groundwork, that will boost confidence in your general dancing ability.

Tango and Swing are then added, along with further choreography in the initial four dances. The classes are structured to ensure a steady progression to more and more interesting and complex choreography, whilst improving general technique all the way through.

As ability increases, we will introduce Slow Foxtrot, Rumba, Jive, Paso-Doble, Samba and Viennese Waltz to the classes until you can dance all of the ballroom and Latin dances you see on Strictly.

FAQs

Are there classes for absolute beginners?
All of our NEW Beginner classes are for ABSOLUTE Beginners, no need for any experience whatsoever, just turn up… with a sense of humour and lots of enthusiasm
I'm really nervous!
Its easy for us to say ‘DON’T BE’ but really ‘don’t be’, we have been teaching for over thirty years and know all about how you will feel. We do our best to help and offer a little bit of  ‘Dutch Courage’  at our licensed bar (if it helps).

 

The hardest step you will take is the one through the front door, from then on its a piece of cake.

What do I wear?

Whatever you’re comfortable in. All we recommend is that you avoid trainers as they will grip too tightly to the floor and decrease your inevitable talent on the floor.

Can I come alone?
Of course you can… it is obviously better if you have a partner, but with a number of staff there to help we should be able to get someone to dance with you.
Can I park nearby?

We have our own car park at the front and rear of the studio, so you should have no trouble parking.

How long before the class starts should I arrive?

Providing you are there for the start time we don’t mind. If you would like a drink, or a chat with your friends it’s a good idea to get there about 15minutes before the start of your class. You can then watch whatever else is going on at the Studio.. there’s always plenty.
