Our Social Class
If you’re either new to Ballroom/Latin dancing or looking to improve your dancing and just generally looking for a more relaxed social dancing experience, then our Social Class is for you.
This class is split into two sub-classes which both run at the same time and will both be covering the same dances for that week, therefore allowing students to move from class to class depending on dance and ability. The two sub-classes are: Beginners and Improvers, and both classes aim to teach you the steps and technique of Ballroom and Latin dances such as Waltz and Cha-Cha-Cha, but at a different speed and difficulty to suit your dancing experience.
Social Beginners: This half of the class is aimed at newcomers to this style of dance and even to those that have never danced before. Social Beginners focuses more on the basic core steps and sequences of the dances and introduces students to both timing and basic Ballroom/Latin etiquette, giving the student a new understanding of this dance form and to allow you to comfortably dance your way around or through the space.
Social Improvers: This half of the class is aimed more at those who have experience in both Ballroom and Latin and therefore need to expand your knowledge and technique. This class will offer you more steps and figures to add to the core sequences that you already know so that you can start being able to put together your own routines/sequences for occasions such as open dancing, socials and (if you want to) competitions. This class will also improve on your knowledge of timing, dance etiquette and try to improve your skills in areas such as leading and following, hopefully to an extent that you can feel confident enough to dance with anyone either Beginner or Improver.
If you are inexperienced in either Ballroom or Latin, then you can attend the Beginners class for the dances you do not have experience with, and the Improvers class for those that you do have experience with. If you feel that the Improvers class is moving too fast, and you would rather move over to Beginners to feel more confident with the main sequences and timing, you may do so.
