cruise lesson on the Ventura

Please come along to any of the classes and learn at your own pace. We teach one new Ballroom dance and one new Latin dance every two weeks. We find this gives the pupil plenty of time to learn the steps and understand the different rhythms of that dance before moving on to the next dance. We teach the same dance each week at all three of our venues so if you can’t make a Monday night one week, feel free to join us on another night at one of our other venues. Our Beginners, Improvers and Intermediate classes run in parallel on each night and when you feel ready you have the option of joining a more advanced class.

Feel the heat from the sensual dances of South America as you learn the intoxicating rhythms from the exotic islands of Cuba and the Carribean. We teach the basics of Cuban salsa, Merengue and Mambo, and once you have mastered the first simple steps you will soon be having fun whether you are just dancing in a club or at a special event.

Argentine Tango

Special classes will also available for you to learn one of the most passionate dances from South America.With its origins in the sordid streets of Buenos Aires it has developed into the international dance we see today. In the class you will learn the basic principles of the walk from a basic construction and begin to add other steps such as the ocho’s and the intricate flicks of the gancho that make the dance famous.

WHAT TO WEAR

Please wear comfortable clothes that you will feel free and confident to move in. We recommend wearing supportive shoes with soles that will slide freely on wooden floors, for ladies a shoe with a sensible heel would be preferable but no sling backs or backless shoes. For men a traditional shoe that you would wear with a suit would be the best choice, trainers and rubber soled shoes can be dangerous as they may stick to the floor.

Eventually you may like to purchase specialist dancing shoes and we can help with that and are able to purchase them for a special discount for our members. You will find they make a huge difference to your comfort, balance and greatly improve your dancing.
