Fun social dance classes

Intermediate Foundations

The number of intermediate moves is almost endless but we have a set of standard intermediate moves you'll come across or variations on these standards.

This is one of our Foundation Workshops and is ideal for experienced beginners, intermediates or anyone wishing to develop their secondary dance role. More experienced dancers are sometimes unaware they are still missing some core skills.

This intensive session is especially useful if you find that the jump from beginners to intermediate is very daunting - knowing these moves will help ease the transition.
