Adult Beginner Ballroom & Latin American
LearnToDance run three Adult Beginner Ballroom and Latin American dance classes throughout the week in Burnham (Sunday & Monday evenings; Wednesday lunchtime).
Our beginner classes are designed for complete beginners, with only a few basic steps covered per dance, and you can attend either with a partner or on your own.
Those that come with a partner are not required to swap during the classes.
PLEASE NOTE UNDER 2020 CORONAVIRUS GUIDANCE OUR BEGINNER CLASSES ARE CURRENTLY COUPLES ONLY.
WE HAVE INTRODUCED A SOLO ROUTINES CLASS SHOULD YOU NOT HAVE A PARTNER.
What do I learn in Adult Beginner Ballroom classes?
LearnToDance classes run throughout the year and we cover the basics of 12 dances in a rolling cycle. During our beginner classes you will learn Waltz, Rumba, Foxtrot, Samba, Tango, Jive, Quickstep, Cha Cha, Viennese Waltz, Salsa, Argentine Tango and Merengue.
Each week the classes cover two dances, one Ballroom and one Latin American. With one of the dances being a recap of the previous week, followed by teaching the next dance in the rolling cycle.
What if I just want to learn one or two dances?
We do run 6 Week Courses in a variety of single dances throughout the year. Whilst these classes are aimed at improver level, the Monday evening class is open to adult beginners.
Alternatively, you are welcome to jump in and out of classes that are covering the particular dances you are after.
The best way however is probably via a personal tuition session with one of our instructors. These sessions are for up to two people and you can focus on whatever dances you want to or let us guide you.
How much do the Adult Beginner Ballroom classes cost and when are they?
Classes cost £8.50 per person, £38.25 for 5 sessions (3 month expiry) or £68 for 10 sessions (6 month expiry).
The Adult Beginner classes are on:
- Sunday 7-7.45pm
- Monday 8-8.45pm
- Wednesday 12.30-1.15pm
The 15mins between classes is for practice and questions.
