About our Strictly Courses...

Our Strictly courses are designed to teach four Ballroom and four Latin American dances. 

The first course, or beginners course, covers the dances to a very basic level and is an introduction to these styles of dance.  And rest assured all participants will be beginners.  So, no need to worry about that!








Cha Cha Cha



We welcome couples, or solos dancers, of all ages and genders.  If you are attending as a solo dancer you will dance solo learning either the lead or follow steps.  However, if you wish you can partner up with someone in the class or with a friend.  One of you could take the lead steps and the other the follow steps, or even learn both so you can switch.  Our instructors will try and dance with as many solo dancers as possible, but please note that this isn’t always possible.

Dancers attending as a couple, will learn together.  One will take the lead steps and one will take the follow steps.  You will then always dance together.

Each course we teach a selection of Ballroom and Latin American dances which will cover the basics.  After the first course, which normally lasts 10-15 weeks (depending on how long the term lasts) you should have learnt the basics of at least six dances.  

When ready, the beginners course would progress onto our next course which we call ‘Improvers’.  This course is not advanced, but the participants do have basic knowledge of the dances mentioned above.

All courses run with the following basic principles in mind… fun, exercise and a sense of achievement!  We of course want pupils to learn the correct steps and movements, but we are not expecting scores of 10s at the end of the course.  Our relaxed atmosphere is most effective when adults are learning a new skill.

Our teachers are always happy to assist and can give that extra bit of help and support where needed.

Our Monday Improvers classes are relaxed and social. There are lots of improving abilities in these sessions and everyone works together with 3-4 instructors. This means it is a social evening and anyone who can dance the basics can join the welcoming group. Each session the instructors work on the technique, present new variations, and steps to each group. 

Footwear: We suggest that ladies wear a low heel shoe which is not rubber soled.  Men should wear a leather sole shoe that is also not rubber.

Clothing: Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move freely move arms and legs in.
