CLASSES

Wedding Dance Classes & Private Lessons


Private Lessons and First Wedding Dance classes can be arranged at the studios. Please contact reception for more information and a list of recommended teachers. The studio will be booked through us but you would need to liaise with the teachers themselves to arrange the lesson. Please note that we do not offer slots that are permanent.




Do I need to sign up ahead of time to join a class?


No you do not need to sign up. Please see our timetable page for more information.




Do I need to come with a partner when attending Latin & Ballroom/Salsa/Tango classes?


No you don't need to come with a partner. Teachers will try to mix up partners around the class so that everyone is able to join in.




What do I wear to class?


Something you feel comfortable to move in.




FOOTWEAR - What is suitable for tap/ballet/ballroom/jazz?


Try the classes out before investing in the correct footwear. When starting out, for tap, latin and ballroom and flamenco, a hard sole shoe is fine to begin with. Ballet can be done in socks/bare feet at the students own risk, until you decide/want to buy ballet shoes. Trainers are suitable for JAZZ, ZUMBA, STREET DANCE, BOLLYWOOD and FITNESS CLASS. To get more specific advise, please ask the teacher after the class and they will advise.




How old do I have to be to attend a class?


Apart from Children's Ballet, we do not have classes for kids. All our classes are for adults and ages 16 +

For Flamenco you will need to wear heels. Generally a low heel similar to those of traditional Flamenco shoes is the most suitable.
