  • 6 Weeks Beginners Course (Introduction to Latin & Ballroom, dances A)

Mondays 20 Feb - 27 Mar

7pm to 8pm

  • 6 Weeks Beginners Course (Introduction to Jive, Latin & Ballroom, dances B) ​Mondays 3, 17, 24 Apr, 8 May (coronation day), 15, 22 May, 7pm to 8pm (if you can't make a Monday, ask us to exchange it with one Wednesday Weekly Drop-In class).

The Six Weeks Courses offer you an 'Introduction to Latin & Ballroom (& Jive)' for Beginners, in two groups of dances, 'A' and 'B'; you can start with any group. The Three Week Courses focus on one or two dances.

The group of dances 'A' in a Six Weeks Course:

Cha Cha Cha, Waltz,

Rumba, Tango

The group of dances 'B' in a Six Weeks Course:

Jive, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Merengue

Each beginners course has a level 1 for absolute beginners and a level 2 for beginners who are ready to progress. So you could attend a certain course on level 1 and soon on level 2. Sometimes there is a Beginners class on Thursdays, but that is only for Beginners 1.

How to progress as beginner

In the first year of your dancing you learn the mayor dances, build up a broader knowledge of the basic steps, develop muscle memory and confidence by attending and repeating the Beginners Courses on level 1 and then level 2. A regular, preferably weekly dance schedule and any practice helps. After attending courses with dances A and dances B we recommend to continue with the Beginner Courses on level 2 and additionally to come as often as possible to the Wednesday Weekly Drop-In Classes > which includes a social / practice session to practice all dances. The teachers are happy to discuss when it's a good time for you to move up to the Improvers level where we focus for 4 weeks on one dance. Our London Ballroom Fever party series> are a great place to have fun, while you put into practice what you've learnt and mix with dancers of all levels.

  • Beginner 2: You've learned the very first Basic steps of the dances before and are now ready to learn more steps. You can change back and forth between Beginners 1 & 2 depending on the dance, as these levels are taught at the same time. Pre-Bronze figures.

  • Improvers: Students who have been dancing that dance for approximately one year. Pre-Bronze and Bronze figures.

  • Intermediate: Students who have been dancing that dance at least for two to three years. Bronze and Silver figures.

  • Advanced: Students who have been learning at least for four to five years, know the basics up to Silver well and have developed their technique sufficiently. Silver, Gold and Goldstar figures. 

If you can't make one class

for whatever reason, we offer you to attend the live-streaming of a Beginners course online on Zoom (stuck at the office or at home, having to self-isolate, etc.). Let us know latest 2 hours before the class. Or for all levels, you could attend the Wednesday Weekly Drop-In class instead. Choose any of the weeks and let us know the day before and with refering to which date of you course you are replacing.
