There's plenty of parking at the school, turn right as you come in and park in the Staff Parking area (map below). There is water but no cups at the venue so please bring a named water bottle with you.
The H.I. (Human Interaction) Initiative is a unique proactive approach to improve connection and inclusivity within our dance community. Since it started in January 2020 everyone has noticed the benefits - come and check it out!
We start with the basics followed by learning a few moves which you can immediately start to use in your social dancing.
You can start any week at any venue. Included in the evening is a 30 minute review session to ask questions and get one to one assistance.
|8.15||Social dancing and practice|
||Review with the Taxi dancers.
This class is aimed at anyone who has attended more than 10 classes and is ideal for developing either lead or follow roles. We teach moves for easy social freestyle, one of which may be repeated from the previous week.
After the class is a review with the teacher to ask questions and get one to one assistance.
|9.00||Intro-mediate Review to 9.15 with the teacher.|
In parallel to the Intro-mediate class we run a workshop review on the stage. You must have attended the full workshop in order to attend the review.
