Class Description

Classes designed with absolute beginners in mind.

Our ballroom dance instructors have many years of experience teaching students such as yourself and have been trained to follow the Dancebuzz teaching methodology and syllabus designed to get you dancing away as quickly as possible.

Many are highly recognised in the competitive dance world and have been part of TV programs like Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing with the Stars or the equivalents in their native countries.

The primary objective of the beginners ballroom dancing lessons is to make sure you have fun dancing. We regularly hold social ballroom and Latin dancing events at the end of the ballroom dancing courses, where you will be able to practice the styles you have learnt and enjoy dancing with others like yourself.

FAQs

  • What to wear in a ballroom and latin class?

    Smart casual clothing and comfortable shoes. If you are a beginner normal shoes (ideally with leather sole) are a good choice. Trainers, boots and high heels are not recommended. Small heel for ladies is most suitable but flat shoes are acceptable too.

  • I am on my own, do I need to bring a partner?

    You will be rotated with the other students whom have no partner either, so having a partner join with you is not necessary.

    To ensure all students have an enjoyable time, we actively monitor the bookings to ensure there is not too much of an imbalance

    It is advantageous to make your booking early as sometimes you will see just before the course starts on the timetable restictions for a particular sex if there is proving to be too much of one over the other.

  • My partner and I wish to stay together on the course, is this possible or do we have to rotate?

    Whilst it is highly recommended to improve both leading and following quickly (essential to being able to dance outside of class) at the beginner level, couples who join together do not rotate unless the tell the instructor they wish to.
