New 6 Week Beginner Courses


Join Us

Perhaps it's something you've always wanted to try? Maybe you're looking to learn a new skill with a partner, whilst having fun and making new friends - the chance to start a new hobby has never been better. Well, County Dance has the answer - our new beginner's class is the perfect way to spend the evening.

Two Left Feet?

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

6 week course

This is a 6 week course commencing in January 2024. There will be classes 5 days a week which will follow the same format. We are happy for you to switch between classes - for example, if you do shift work - or you could always double up on classes if you want some extra practice!

What should I wear?

Casual clothes are fine. We advise not wearing trainers as they are a little too sticky on the floor - and leather soles may be too slippery! Composition soles are probably best, something with a smooth sole. Ladies may benefit from a small heel. But really don’t won’t too much, whatever you feel comfortable in is best.

Is there a Car Park?

Yes there is a car park behind the commercial garage directly opposite the school. You will need to buy a permit from County Dance and display it in your car. Please click here for more details

Can I come without a partner?

Yes, the Wednesday class at 7:30pm is for solos
