Learn To Dance
Learning to dance is a fun activity - you watch, listen, try, and practise - and some more practice helps a lot. Then you watch, listen, try and practise another step or two. It's usually better if you do this as a couple, and did we mention? - practice helps a lot!
How can we Learn - - - ?
There's three main ways to take dance lessons. You can join a class (SCROLL DOWN for details of new classes from Mel and Ella), you can have private lessons on a one to one basis, or take a concentrated course for a special occasion, such as that First Wedding Dance.

SPECIAL NOTE for 2014
Many of our new Classes are almost full already and up untill the end of March 2014, re-commencing in April for the next term. We may be able to fit in Private Lessons during that time, we have some daytime slots available - see below!
Private Lessons - - Will I Learn Faster?
You'll find Private Lessons on a one to one basis are probably the fastest way to learn, similar to the learning curve you've seen on TV in "Strictly Come Dancing" - just don't expect results in a week. Whilst most people can learn to dance, even if they think they can't, or think they've two left feet, you won't have up to ten hours a day, six or seven days a week to learn, train and practice as the celebrities on television do!
If you decide Private Dance Lessons is the way you want to go, please call us on 07811 896866 for more details, and to set up suitable dates and times for your schedule.
First Wedding Dance Lessons - - ?
If you'd like a special dance routine for your special day, we can help! We can choreograph a Dance to suit your choice of music, or suggest a choice of music, or we specialise in surprise traditional dances for your Wedding Day - the Waltz.
