Couples Classes

Beginners Ballroom & Latin

16 Week Course
  1. You don’t have to be Fred and Ginger to join us! We have COMPLETE BEGINNER ballroom and latin classes available at all our venues. Four left feet between you entirely welcome, and a fun friendly environment to learn in. Why not do something together for a change?

Classes are one hour long, and cost £16 per couple per week. The first week is paid in advance to hold your spot, and all other weeks are PAYG on the door.

There is no partner swapping, so you do need to bring someone along with you (if you don’t have a partner take a look at our solo classes).

You will learn:

Cha Cha, Foxtrot, Salsa, Waltz, Sq Tango, Rock n Roll and Quickstep

££16 Per Couple Per Session

Solo Classes

Solo Latin Class

4 Week Course

Our weekly solo latin class is perfect if you don’t have a partner to bring along to our couples classes. Its a way of learning to dance, from scratch (as this is aimed at complete beginner level!), whilst sharing a room with other people in the same boat. All wanting to try something new, all eager to have a great time and, if we do our job well, all smiling!

You only have to pay for your first week, and then see how you feel after that.

£7 Per Person Per Session

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no strict dress code for lessons, we recommend wearing something that feels comfortable and allows movement. Most beginners will not have dance shoes so we advise on wearing a sensible, non-marking shoe that won’t be difficult to dance in, that means no stilettos for the ladies please.
Yes, unless you are attending a fitness or solo class of course.
The only age restriction is that you must be over 18 to attend evening classes. Our classes are popular with people in their 20’s through to 70’s so don’t be afraid to have a go.
Most people are nervous before their first class, but don’t worry it won’t last long. Everybody will be in the same position – a complete beginner so you won’t be the odd one out. We will meet you on arrival to greet you and let you know where you are going. We make sure that you enjoy yourself with our friendly relaxed atmosphere, no pressure, just a good time.
You won’t be charged for missed classes if you class runs on a PAYG basis. We understand that it’s difficult to attend every lesson over a long course which is why we offer private catch up lessons. Speak to your teacher before or after the class to arrange a lesson if you are feeling behind or worried.
Feel free to contact us at any time. Call us or send an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
