ADULT DANCE CLASSES
BALLROOM & LATIN AMERICAN
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't always guarantee to turn one of those lefts into a right, but we do ensure you leave with a smile on your face! Our brand new Absolute Beginner groups typically start in January and September each year, however our classes do in fact run each and every week. Often we try and cover a few steps from a couple of dances in each class with regular recaps to go over what you have learnt. 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 - we try to keep the routines nice and simple!
Our Beginners Plus classes are aimed at those of you that can already get around the floor or through a routine generally unassisted.
However we expect that you'll probably still need a little encouragement with what steps to do 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 have already covered previously. We’ll also add some new steps, do a bit of technique to make you look nice and feel better PLUS make a start on some of the slightly harder dances too.
IF YOU'VE LEARNT TO DANCE THE BASICS SOMEWHERE ELSE YOU ARE VERY WELCOME TO JOIN THESE CLASSES WITH US!
BEGINNERS PLUS CLASSES ARE AVAILABLE AT:
SOUTHAMPTON - SHIRLEY
SOUTHAMPTON - TOTTON
SOUTHAMPTON - DIBDEN PURLIEU
"Forget all your troubles, smile and be happy...
...dance all your cares away!"
This popular dance style uses many of the traditional Ballroom & Latin dances and steps, set to a 16 bar sequence with strict tempo music.
If you can already dance competently, Modern Sequence offers a nice alternative to our other Ballroom & Latin classes, expanding the range of dances you can do at one of our social dances. There’s so many varieties of style and rhythms to have a go at from the White City Waltz, Apricot Rumba or Mayfair Quickstep to the Mambo Magic, Argentine Stroll and Sweet Bay Salsa!
WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND THAT YOU HAVE A BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF THE BALLROOM & LATIN DANCES BEFORE ATTEMPTING OUR MODERN SEQUENCE
SOUTHAMPTON - TOTTON & FAREHAM
Our Salsa classes are aimed at a mixture of levels, from those that have not tried it before to competent Latino movers!
We’ll take you through all the basic fundamentals, rhythms and timings to help you master the simple steps or if this already comes naturally, we’ll get you blasting out some moves with real Cuban fury!
BRAND NEW DANCERS ALWAYS WELCOME!
COMPETENT SALSA DANCERS FROM ANY OTHER CLASSES OR DANCE SCHOOLS ARE VERY WELCOME TO JOIN OUR HIGHER LEVEL CLASSES
ALL COMPETENT DANCERS, FROM ANY DANCE SCHOOL, ARE WELCOME TO JOIN THIS CLASS
If you’ve been dancing for a little while, can get around the floor unaided and want to push your dancing on to the next level, then our Improvers Class is for you.
We will develop your dancing with new and more complicated routines, albeit based on those you may have learnt in our Beginners Plus classes. There's plenty of technique to be working on too, so expect some of the finer points of dancing to be discussed, dissected and put into practice - and yes you will need to practice! We’ll give you some style tips too so that you can impress all those on-lookers!
