What We Do

LearnToDance is a Ballroom and Latin American dance school based at our Cherry Orchard Dance Studio in Burnham, Buckinghamshire. In addition, we also provide classes in Maidenhead, Berkshire on a Friday afternoon.

Meet our teachers on our About Us page or see our Class Timetable for locations and times.

Ballroom and Latin American Beginner Classes run three times a week and are designed for complete beginners.  Similarly, you can book Personal Tuition either for yourself or with a partner.

Once you are happy with the basics there are a variety of different levels of classes and workshops to choose from.  Moreover, we also offer the option to take Ballroom and Latin American exams under the National Association of Teachers of Dance (NATD).

How We Do It

At LearnToDance our aim is make dancing fun and sociable and we hold regular social events and dance holidays. Dancing can be low impact and yet, highly aerobic and, unless you like that sort of thing, it's definitely more fun than going to the gym!

You can browse our Quick Calendar below for what Ballroom and Latin American dances we're covering in upcoming classes.  There is also the option to Sign Up to our quarterly email updates, or weekly 'What's On'.

A bit later you can also see testimonials from our students.  We've also included answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.

Feel free to Contact Us if you have any questions.

Testimonials

I thoroughly recommend 'Learn To Dance' as a fabulous way to learn ballroom and latin dances. The lessons are fun, easy to follow and progress naturally - all the while with fun and great good humour. Join Us!

Carolyn McGeachie

My wife and I performed the best ever opening dance in Spain for our Wedding day and this only happened because Antony showed us how to do it over 6 months of regular training.

He knows what to do if you ask him what you want.

 

Alfonso Chicharro

Antony and Emma-Lou are some of the best dance teachers out there. Having been taught by both of them in a friendly and professional manner, I was able to learn the basics of dancing and felt that I could have gone on to learn more with them if I had wanted to (relocation being the only reason why that is not the case). The rates they charge are good and their knowledge is second to none. Brilliant service.

 

Chris Simpson

Very friendly teachers who are also extremely patient. Enjoy very much.

Hilkka & Jeremy Keen

Friendly, competent, encouraging with time for everyone. Well worth the exercise & FUN!

Janette H-B

Emma was brilliant, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I wish we had pulled our finger out sooner and booked more lessons. What she did for us in a short space of time was amazing.

We enjoyed it so much, we are serious about having lessons after the wedding just for the fun of it.

Jacci R

Just to say "a VERY BIG THANK YOU". Your choreography worked perfectly! We had a cracking time.  Our wedding went so smoothly, including the 1st dance. I think we have danced the whole 3 minutes of "Sunrise"...can't remember exactly, not because we drank a lot but because we were so happy. We may even have come across quite confident in the end. I also managed not to trip up Gavin with my huge dress.

In general, we danced a lot that evening. We're still aching 2 days later 😉 A friend of us shot a short video, awaiting a copy of it.

Thank you so much for your patience with us beginners ;-))  We loved the whole experience being your students.

I just wanted to write and thank you for all your help with our first dance.  We got married on 2nd September and the dance went down a storm!! I'm so glad we decided to get our first dance choreographed. It made the day!

Many Thanks

Claire and Andrew

Just wanted to drop you a note to say a massive thank you for teaching us how to dance. We were so worried about our first dance but you have this magical way of making people believe that they can do it. It was amazing to get a routine in 4 weeks, especially as the pair of us have two left feet.  The dance went down really well and everyone loved it.  We actually ended up doing it twice as a few people missed it the first time!

Jola B

My fiance and I are definitely non-dancers, but needed a first dance for our wedding. In addition, we are of a certain age and the situation is made worse by disability. However, after a few lessons and a great deal of patience from Antony, we were able to perform a routine which earned us applause and many compliments. Thank you for enabling us to avoid complete humiliation!

Allan & Sandra G.

Sorry it's taken so long to write but I'd really like to thank Antony for teaching me and my husband our first dance. It was such a success. Nobody could believe it especially of Barry, as he hates dance floors! Thank you again for your help.

Sharon H

Having planned our wedding with military precision, the only thing left worrying me was "our first dance".

So I scoured the internet and came across Learn To Dance.

From the moment I spoke to Antony on the phone, I knew we had made the right decision in booking the dance classes.

To say that we were bad on our first lesson is an understatement but, with the help of Antony and Emma, we managed to pull off a brilliant first dance.

They were so patient, professional and understanding. They listened to what we wanted and really pulled it out the bag.

We couldn't have done it without them. It was the brilliant ending to the most amazing day of our lives and we can't thank you both enough.

Thanks again!

Laura & Sam

We had a wonderful wedding and, just for a few days, the sun shone.

But one of the most important things was that when it came to the first dance, we walked out confidently, made a small mistake, but loved our dance. Quite a few people were surprised we could do it, and we were both very proud of each other. Our dance added to what was a superb day, and your help was so appreciated by Peyalee & I.

Thank you for helping us enjoy what was such a special day for a lot of people.

(When we messed up slightly during the dance, we covered it so well and smiled, as you taught us!)

Thank You So Much

Peyalee & Chris

Antony’s classes allowed us to go through the first dance ordeal with ease.

We were quite nervous as we had never tried any dancing and, with all eyes on you during your Big Day, you just want to look great on the dance floor.

The routine put together helped us to show some sophisticated moves other than simple shuffling.

Antony had plenty of patience and is very flexible in his time approach. In 6 classes only, we had a great routine which fitted with the words of our song and we even had some pounds left in our pocket 🙂

We would highly recommend Antony to future brides and grooms.

Agata & Liam

My husband and I apprehensively booked some lessons for our first dance. We both have two left feet and were rather nervous about the whole thing! As soon as we were greeted by Emma and Antony they made us feel at ease and we couldn’t wipe the smile off our face! After the six lessons we had a great routine, a whole lot of laughs and some precious down time in between the chaos of planning a wedding! I would highly recommend Learn To Dance as a highly professional, cost effective, friendly and fun experience. I definitely plan to return for regular lessons!

Hannah & Saul

We just wanted to let you know that our first dance went down brilliantly with the guests. Everybody was clapping along and cheering and we loved every second. We managed the whole thing with no (major!) mess ups and so many people have said it's the best first dance they've seen.

Thank you so much for all your help, you really did turn something we were dreading into something that ended up being one of the best parts of the day.

Thanks a million.

Vic & Pete

Having had 2 left feet, I was reluctant to get into dancing, even though my partner had been asking me to go to lessons for years.  Having eventually given in and joining lessons with Learn to Dance, I am now thinking that I should have started many years ago.  Antony and Emma-Louise Holeksa have built my confidence in dancing, helped me improve by leaps and bounds (sometimes quite literally with some of the moves they have taught me), whilst making sure that learning to dance is great fun.  It is always a pleasure to attend their fun lessons.

Michael Keogh

Martin and I would like to say a massive thank you to Antony and Emma for choreographing our first dance. It was a brilliant way to start our wedding celebrations, because not only did it give us confidence to dance in front of all our guests, it was great fun too. The surprised reaction we received, and all the cheering will be a lovely, lasting memory for us to look back on.

Not only was it great fun to do on our wedding day, the whole experience of learning the routine was fun too, and a great way to unwind from the stress of planning a wedding.

I would recommend Learn To Dance to any of our friends who are thinking of getting married.
