Beginner - Latin American & Social Ballroom Dance Class

Don’t let fear stop YOU!  Bring it WITH YOU!

Next course starts  Thursday 14th June 7.30 to 8.30pm

First and foremost we think of Ballroom Dancing as a physical activity. And it most certainly is. No matter if you are gliding around the floor with a Slow Waltz or tearing up the floor with a ChaCha, all dances have challenges for you body. The constant movement is a cardio workout as most dance lessons or events last for at least 45 minutes.  So even if you are moving slowly, that’s 45 minutes of moving. But if you are putting a bit of effort into getting around the floor then your 45 minute stroll just became a lot more calorie consuming… and you probably didn’t even notice it!

Did you know that dancing isn’t just good for your body?  It’s also great for your brain. Dancing can helps you stay fit (for people of all ages) it has a wide range of physical and mental benefits including:

  • Improved condition of your heart and lungs
  • Increase muscular strength, endurance and motor fitness
  • Improved muscle tone and strength
  • Stronger bones, helping to reduce risk of osteoporosis
  • Better coordination --agility and flexibility
  • Improved balance and spatial awareness
  • Increased physical confidence
  • Improved mental functioning
  • Greater self-confidence
  • Better Social skills

If you’ve ever wanted to learn to dance this is the class for you, Fun, simple and easy to learn dance moves which can be used in the Waltz, Rumba, Rhythm Foxtrot, Cha-Cha and Salsa.

Dancing is like the alphabet.  Once you’ve learnt the basics you can put them together in several combinations. In the beginners class you gain the idea of how to move and develop as you go along. 

Beyond that, all you need is a willingness to let yourself go.

Clothing & Footwear

It does not matter what you wear as long as you are comfortable. Neat causal is good. It is best of avoid flip flops, 6 inch heels or boots.

Already Know how to Dance

Improver courses are offered to those looking to take their dancing to the next level. These help to build on the basics you already know from the beginner class while helping you to improve your technique. Closed for 1st term 2016.

Private Lessons for First Dance or Special Occasion

Here we choreography a routine to your choice of music and endeavour to ensure that couples are not only confident with their wedding dance but will derive joy from dancing it on the big day. The son you choose should be selected on the basis of your and your partners likes and dislikes.

Frequently asked question is “how many lessons will I need”.

This depends largely on the ability of the individuals and especially on the need to have home practice before each lesson. Practice ensures that even though the steps may not be technically perfect the couple look comfortable delivering them.

 

Other Options

As well as our popular group classes, we also offer (time permitting) the following. If you have any questions, please contact us and we will help you out.

Team building classes for clubs, business and other specialized groups.

Beginner Latin American & Modern Ballroom

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 smartish 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.
