WHY SHOULD YOU DANCE?
Learning to dance can be very stressful, let alone stepping onto the dance floor for the first time surrounded by strangers. Not knowing what you’re doing could be disheartening. In fact, studies show that most people stop dancing because they feel stuck, are afraid others’ opinions, or feel like they are not progressing quickly enough.
Our goal is to help you learn the basics and fundamentals of dance - before you step into a class with other people. We’ll teach you 8 of the most popular social dances worldwide, helping you form strong foundations for a thriving future in dance. Whether you want to dance socially, recreationally, or competitively, our classes are the perfect starting point!

Our dance students, young and old, love the fact that they can view our lessons as much (or as little) as they want, and at a time that suits them. Sure, you could perform a quick search on YouTube for “free dance instruction videos,” but these won’t get you the results you’re searching for. Why? Because they simply don’t go into enough detail for beginners.
Each dance is demonstrated to music by our dancers and then demonstrated in slow motion. The leaders steps are analysed slowly step by step and then the steps are shown to music allowing you to mirror the dancer. We repeat the same format for the follower and then repeat the dance demonstration.
WHICH DANCES WILL I LEARN?
We tech the basic foot patterns in Waltz, Cha Cha Cha, Quickstep, Argentine Tango, Swing Jive, Rhythm Foxtrot, Mambo/Salsa, and Rumba.
WILL I NEED ANY SPECIAL EQUIPMENT?
All you will need is a comfortable pair of shoes, loose clothing and a few square meters of space. You may if you wish purchase a strict tempo dance practice CD for any extra practice. There is a great deal of music available on the internet, but if you are having difficulty finding appropriate music we are always happy to help. You will need to do regular recaps to set the routines into your muscular memory. With a positive attitude and a little time you will master the basics of Ballroom Dance.
