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

About this course
If you have already Quick-stepped through the Beginners course, or have some previous dance experience and know the basic steps for each dance, then this is the next step up for you!
During the Intermediate level ballroom dancing classes, we will re-visit some of the basic steps for each dance as well as learning some more challenging ones. Each week we re-cap the previous dances learnt so that you are able to remember all of the steps with confidence, and you’ll also learn a little more about the technique and musicality of each dance to really impress your friends and family!
8 week course
We offer an 8-week course where you’ll learn 8 Ballroom and Latin dances so you can Quickstep and Cha-Cha-Cha your way around a social dance, wedding or work event in no time! You get to dance a mixture of Ballroom and Latin styles, and each week we’ll recap the previous class so you’ll be able to remember the steps with confidence.
4 week courses
You can also take the 8-week course in two 4-week blocks, allowing you to test it out if you’re not ready to commit to the full course, or give you some flexibility if you aren’t sure you’ll be able to attend all 8 weeks. Of course, there’s nothing stopping you taking either the first or second part as a stand-alone course, simply see which dates work for you!
4 week courses:
Part 1 – Waltz, Rumba, Foxtrot and Cha-Cha-Cha
Part 2 – Samba, Tango, Quickstep and Jive
Choose the 8 week option and save £20 compared to booking separately!
What’s next? From here, why not take some private lessons to refine your dancing and prepare for a Medal Test or Pro-Am competition? Or, hit the dance floor to practice your steps at regular social dance nights!
