Mandy and Basil, the Island Dance Wizards, are full time professional dance teachers running the Isle of Wight's friendliest lessons, workshops and events in a wide variety of social dance styles. Island visitors and residents alike are always very welcome at all of our events, so please contact us for details (and check your junk/spam folder for replies!).
On MONDAYS we've moved our existing MJ/Blues Night to a Bigger Venue in SANDOWN with a Better Floor and a Big Car Park right alongside!
...and we're changing the format so that both lessons are always suitable for complete beginners right through to the most experienced dancers - the First is in a Smooth style of Modern Jive*, the Second adds some traditional Blues dancing skills into the mix!
*Easy to dance to almost any music and compatible with all of your Leroc/Ceroc/Modern Jive moves, but turning you into the sort of smoother Leader or Follower who can use their musicality and improvisational skills to really be in demand on the Dance Floor!
NEW to DANCE? Ladies and Gents, Singles and Couples, are all really welcome to join this class - It’s fun and simple and don't forget you REALLY don't need to bring a partner - plus it's easier to learn to dance than you think - just drop in any week!
Don’t forget we also run Workshops and Freestyle Dance (Party) Nights - Freestyle Partner Dancing in a friendly atmosphere to a wide variety of music and styles - email for details!
Methodist Church Hall Sandown venue
Big Hall 5 minutes walk from the famous beach
Big Car Park right alongside (entrances in Station Avenue next to Conservative Club or from York Road)
Kitchen to make Tea, Coffee or Squash in...
What's not to like? ;)
From the Broadway (main Shanklin to/from Ryde route through Sandown) take Station Avenue down towards the sea front (turning right if coming from Shanklin, left if coming from Ryde). Drive to the lower end and turn right just past the Conservative Club into the public car park alongside - park at opposite end - you're alongside the Methodist Church!! - Entrance to the hall is in York Road down a side passage to the right as you face the main Church entrance - can't miss it! :)
