Ballroom and Latin for beginner, improver and intermediate level social dancers. Raymond Root and Piotr Chlebos are the teachers plus Anna Lam as assistant. Singles and couples are welcome. We have two rooms, and do lessons from 3.30 pm to 8 pm, then students use the main hall from 8 pm to 10 pm for supervised practice and revision of the moves they have learned, to music . The main hall has opening windows on both sides of the room and both rooms are well ventilated.We provide free issue tea
For May and June 2021 we will assume most of our guests are a bit rusty and we will focus on revision of the main Latin and ballroom dances at three levels, doing one Ballroom and Latin dance each Sunday for two weeks, before moving onto the next two.
We have been holding ballroom lessons every Sunday in Colliers Wood since 2007, with no gaps until Covid regulations forced us to suspend lessons.
Our aim is, and always has been, to provide a service for ballroom dancers to learn and improve their dance skills in fun, effective and inexpensive lessons, taught by skilled, kind and enthusiastic top level social dance teachers, and we also provide a large floor for dancers to regularly practice and improve their social dance skills on the dance floor in a social situation
Our guests range in age from eighteen to eighty and are from a multitude of backgrounds and ethnicities. We encourage social interaction and fun, with bus stops, Paul Jones and snowballs (when permitted)
