Classes for improver and intermediate level social ballroom dancers only, to improve their social dance skills and technique. The lessons will consist of a 'combinations' class (theory and practice on which steps can follow or precede other steps), revision of technique (timing, posture, sway, musicality, ability to lead and follow) and graceful routines for improver and intermediate level students.
The floor is large and the room well ventilated with opening windows on two opposite walls. The teacher is former world champion Raymond Root with Anna Lam as assistant. There is a twenty minute tea break with free issue tea, to give students (and the teacher) a chance to catch their breath and relax between the two classes. The first class starts a few minutes after 7 pm.
After the class, we play ballroom records, so the students have a chance to practice and revise what they have been taught.
Entry price a is £10 payable on the door in cash only.
There is a free car park behind the building, but do not enter until 7 pm as you will get a large fine, and there are cameras. If you come every week we can register your licence plate number, (which takes one week to do)
