Our Cultures & Values

A Quick Summary:

  • We encourage participating and discourage watching - people in the class don't like being watched. We do make the odd exception so please contact the venue manager if you have a specific requirement.
  • We rotate in the group classes - it's the quickest way to learn. Private lessons are available at all levels and occasionally new dancers like to take a couple before joining the main group classes.
  • We respect the private of others - please refrain from video recording.
  • Health and safety: barefoot dancing is not permitted and heel caps are required for heels smaller than a 20c coin.
  • We will give you a full refund if you are not happy.
