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 8-week 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, and you’ll also learn a little more about the technique and musicality of each dance. You’ll learn:

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

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!
