ADULT DANCE CLASSES

Our Ballroom & Latin American and Street Latin courses all start the 1st week of each month, so you will never have to wait long before joining a new course. You are welcome to come and view a class if you would like, before joining on the first week of the month.

'Casual' lessons are now possible, but you are better to register for a course. We have Free Intro Nights (dates listed below) for those who would like to try a class. Check our Studio Noticeboard to find which dances are being taught in each class. 

For those who enjoy dancing alone, our new class - SHINE - is perfect for you. Latin Styling Shine classes are on Saturday mornings ~ learn how to own the movement, be confident, precise and make defined choices in this fabulous new class. Must start at the beginning of the month.
8-week course but with a different ✨*Shine*✨ each month.

Bring a friend, and enjoy a great morning out!
