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.

6:45 - 7:15 Coaching Session

Social Dancing

Social dancing / freestyle is the time to have some fun and put it all into practice. We turn the lights down and the volume up for party time!

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 our culture is to accept invitations to dance and there's no pecking order!
