Ballroom & Latin Taster

Level 1

Have you always wanted to waltz but thought the initial step was too daunting? Do you feel inspired by the performances of the celebrities on Strictly Come Dancing?

With our Ballroom and Latin Taster lessons you will be in good hands. You will cover two of the standard Ballroom dances (Waltz and Tango) and two of the Latin styles (Cha-cha and Jive) and is a fun way to experience the dances in action. This is also a great opportunity to get a feel of what joining one of our courses would be like and discuss with one of our Ballroom dance teachers any questions you might have prior to signing up for one of our longer programs.

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.
