Advanced Course

I was totally frustrated with two other classes I belonged to and was not advancing quickly enough, so I decided to book a class with Gemma as I wanted to learn more. Gemma’s classes are great fun as well as educational and she helps you to feel safe to make mistakes and learn from them.  I am now confident dancing with anyone and always feel so happy at the end of a class!

I booked classes with Gemma as I wanted to progress to a higher standard with my dancing.  Gemma’s classes are enjoyable, fun, and inspiring. Her professionalism and enthusiasm for dance shines through together with her patience and drive to get the best from all her students. I now feel that I am improving rapidly and making good progress in achieving my goals. Gemma’s classes have helped me re-discover the fun and love of dance, and helped build my confidence.

About this class

This course is aimed at dancers who have at least one year of Ballroom and Latin experience, or who have previously completed Gemma’s Intermediate-level course. If you are a Medallist dancer that is studying for Bronze level medals, this course will be covering all of the steps and technique required of the ISTD Bronze syllabus (and occasionally some Silver steps too).  During Latin classes there may also be elements of side-by-side dancing with your partner so that you learn to work on artistic and performing skills too!

During the 10-week course, you will cover all ten Ballroom and Latin dances, including:

  • Waltz
  • Tango
  • Quickstep
  • Foxtrot
  • Viennese Waltz
  • Rumba
  • Cha-Cha-Cha
  • Samba
  • Jive
  • Paso Doble

On this course, you will spend one hour on each dance.  The emphasis during this class will be to work on Bronze level routines, including the technique needed within each dance.  The idea is that this class will compliment your other training towards your Medal Tests, and give you a chance to practice the steps and technique in a fun, sociable environment.  Of course, you don’t have to be taking Medal Tests to equally enjoy and benefit from the course.
