Ballroom & Latin American
Ballroom and Latin American dancing has become a great deal more popular in recent years, mainly as a result of the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. For the first time, many people realised that anybody could learn to dance and that some of them could actually be quite good! Not only that, the health and fitness that it brings is undoubtly a great reason alone to come and have a go. Many people that wish to begin learning are sometimes shy at first to join a group class, but once they pluck up the courage and join in, they often find that it can be a great deal of fun!
Dizzyfeet Dancing offers a variety of group classes, for all levels in a relaxed and social atmosphere. Our aim is to ensure that you have lots of fun, whilst learning a new skill and getting some exercise thrown into the bargain!
For those of you that have never danced before, and really do have 2 left feet, our Absolute Beginners Classes are for you. We can guarantee to turn one of those lefts, into a right even after your first class! Most of our Absolute Beginner classes run for 8 weeks and in that time we try to cover a new dance every couple of weeks with a regular recap of previous dances most weeks. This way it gives you a nice variety of dances to have a go at, but don’t worry that you’ll have too much to remember as we try to keep the routines nice and simple!
Our Beginners Plus class is aimed at those of you that can already get around the floor or through a routine, but perhaps still need a little encouragement with what steps to when and how exactly you do them! Typically this is the natural progression from our Absolute Beginners class, as we build on the routines and steps you will have already covered previously. We’ll also cover some new steps to the popular dances you’ve already learnt and make a start on some of the slightly harder dances too.
If you’ve been dancing for a little while, can get around the floor unaided and want to learn some new steps then our Improvers Class is for you. The routines will get a bit more complicated now and you can expect to learn a little bit of technique too, which should make the dancing somewhat easier. We’ll also give you some style tips as well to impress all those on-lookers!
Our top level class is aimed at seasoned dancers, with a good few years of experience. By this time you know all the dances, a variety of different moves and now just want to get stuck into the intricacies of dancing. You can also expect some competition style routines thrown in for good measure and plenty of discussion on what will make your dancing better.
Examination Technique Classes
Pre-Bronze, Bronze, Silver, Gold
These classes cover the ISTD syllabus for medal examinations. A little more intensive than our social classes, medal examinations require you to dance the specified routines and technique in each levels syllabus. We aim to have 2 examinations a year, where you will be assessed by an ISTD examiner after which you’ll receive a certificate and trophy if you’re successful!
