Thursday has a wide range of music from 80's through to current chart hits. It has a lively atmosphere with between 70 and 110 people aged 18 - 60.

  • C3 Centre, 269 Hills Road, Shirley

Located within the C3 Centre, this is our longest running venue and has always been popular with our dancers. Parking is convenient with over 100 parking spaces in the venue car park. This is also where we hold our monthly dance parties. See below for a map and more info.

We have access to water but there are no (or very few) cups at the venue. So please bring a named water bottle with you.

Thursday Beginners

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.

Thursday Intermediates

We want everyone to have fun and be safe at our dance classes. To help with this we have a Dance WoF (Warrant of Fitness) that we ask everyone to pass before joining an intermediate class.

  • We teach 2-3 moves, one of which may be repeated from the previous week.
  • We'll include extra technique points to help with safety and style.
  • There are 20 base moves and technique points that are often included each class.

After the class is a review with the teacher to ask questions and get one to one assistance.

Coaching Session for Experienced Dancers

Get some direct one on one feedback to improve your dancing without booking a whole private lesson. We work as group, play with moves and style, but is more self directed learning with a teacher around to advise.

This is designed to be what YOU want it to be. Come along and get in on the action.

Social Dancing

Time to have some fun and put it all into practice. We turn the lights down and the volume up for party time!

Freestyle is a great way to meet other people and a great way to stay in shape as you are exercising your whole body not just isolating certain areas.

8:15 - 8:30Easy tempo, shorter songs
9:00 - 10:15Great music variety!

We encourage everyone to ask each other to dance, sometimes this can be a little daunting but there's no pecking order or bias - men ask women, women ask men, leads ask follows and follows ask leads. Check out our...
