Beginner Courses

Maybe you need to learn to dance for a wedding, or for a cruise, or purely for exercise and fun?

Our 8 week Beginner courses are just what you need!

Under the guidance of principals Mary Richardson & Anna Dieguez and their team of qualified teachers you will learn to glide around the floor with ease, enjoying great music, whilst making new friends and acquiring a new skill.

We specialise in teaching beginners (even those with two left feet!) and during the course will teach you the basics in the Slow Waltz, Cha Cha Cha, Social Foxtrot and Jive. 

All our classes are pay as you go and very flexible. If you miss a week, don't worry, we always have several qualified teachers to hand to give you added support and of course you can drop in to any of the other classes.
