About Island Dance Wizards

We run friendly, fun partner-dancing Lessons, Workshops and Events. You don't need any dance experience, you can start any week and (apart from some selected Workshops) you don't even need to bring a partner! We employ only full time professional dance teachers and concentrate on really learning to move and improvise/react as a couple rather than just on memorising steps.

Most of our Dance Lessons have a Practica/Freestyle at the end to give you a chance to practice, socialise and have fun (we'll be on hand to answer any questions or assist on lapses of memory!). Unless you wish to book for a whole course on Special Offer, you pay only for each session you attend. We always aim to have a relaxed, fun atmosphere and welcome feedback by email!

*** We also run Freestyle Dance Parties in Newport, IOW and regular Workshops at a variety of venues (on the Mainland and on the Island) - email for more details!! ***

Exhibition Dancing, Choreography, Show Tuition, Teacher Training and Special Occasion (Wedding First Dance, Proms, Cruises etc.) Tuition are also available by appointment.
