In August 2020 we restarted weekly ballroom dance lessons for those who are already confident about dancing around the floor in a social situation, so there are no beginners.
The teacher is former world champion Raymond Root. We have the use of a large hall (9m x 17m) which is well ventilated with over twenty opening windows on opposite sides of the hall, which we nearly always leave open. We only do ballroom, no Latin.The lessons aim at improving students' basic technique as well as them learning new moves.
We are now doing revision of one ballroom dance only each week, and a different one every week, as many of our students are rusty after four months of lockdown. We have a maximum of ten couples in the hall, and priority is given to those who pay in advance, which you can do by using Pay Pal, by posting me a cheque, or paying in advance on the with cash on the door. The doors open at 7 pm and the lesson starts exactly 7.15 pm. There is tea break at around 8.15 pm with free tea, when you can also do free practice
You can wear masks during the class if you wish, but it is not compulsory. However, you must (to comply with the Community Centre rules) wear a mask when you first enter the building and while in the entrance lobby.
We will be focusing on tango on Friday the 28th August, quickstep on the 4th September, slow foxtrot on 11th September, slow waltz on the 18th September, and Viennese waltz on the 25th September.
