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 this Intermediate level ballroom dancing course, 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. On this course you will also learn a little more about the technique and musicality of each dance. The course covers four Ballroom and four Latin dances:

  • Waltz
  • Cha-Cha-Cha
  • Foxtrot
  • Rumba
  • Tango
  • Samba
  • Quickstep
  • Jive

Lessons five and ten are re-cap classes.  Please note there is no class on Thursday 19th January.


What’s so special about this course?


Learning eight different dances means that you will become the best dancer you can!  You will be well-rounded in all the different dances, not just great at one!  The progressive structure of Gemma’s classes means that you are able to move through the levels from term-to-term, seeing and feeling your progress and building your confidence as you go!

AND…everyone who is a current or past student is granted access to the Ballroom London members’ group, where you will be able to see weekly videos of your class and the steps you have learnt, get exclusive first access to new classes, receive one-off discounts, ask Gemma questions about dancing, and much more!
