Her pupils, whom she accompanied, also represented New Zealand at the World Youth Champions in Europe.

Louise combines her great experience and a real passion for her style of dance to provide her students with the best possible tuition.

It’s not only what you know, but also how to pass it on and bring out the best in everyone that is important.

Originally trained by Jack Ball, Louise has travelled to Canada, Australia and England to keep up the latest trend and styles and continues to keep updated each year.

Beginner pupils continue to surprise and delight Louise. Evolving from a sometimes timid beginner to become confident and able social dancers.

Beginner Latin American & Modern Ballroom                                                                                 

Thursday 19th September: 7.00 to 8.00pm

Six week fee $70 (No EFTPOS)

Fun Simple and Easy to Learn dance moves.

Dancing is like the alphabet, once you’ve learnt the basics you can put them together in several combinations. 

Dancing is a brilliant way to relieve stress and a great form of exercise not only for the body but also for the mind as it keeps the brain active. You may find the mental stimulation even more helpful than the physical exertion. 

You don’t need any special equipment to start out.  A comfortable pair of shoes, (sneakers if you wish) clothes that are comfortable and unlikely to cause a trip hazard. Beyond that all you need is willingness to let yourself enjoy the moment.

If you don’t fancy coming alone invite your partner or friends to come as well. If you're able to shake your hips and forget your worries then you're already halfway there.
