On Friday 20th March the Government ordered all Leisure Facilities to close with immediate effect and until further notice. We hope to resume sessions as soon as the government permits us to reopen. In the meantime, you can check our our online dance lessons (under 'Lessons'), to keep you going until lockdown is lifted.
If you would like to help support us through this enforced closure we'd really appreciate a monthly payment on account that can be used once we reopen. A standing order is preferable, and you can contact us for our bank details, or click here to make a card payment.
Adult Beginner Ballroom & Latin American
LearnToDance run three evening Adult Beginner Ballroom and Latin American dance classes throughout the week in Burnham (Mondays, Thursdays & Sundays).
We are also starting a brand new Wednesday lunch time beginner class from 8th January 2020.
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.
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:
- Monday 8-9pm
- Wednesday (from 8th Jan 2020) 12.30pm
- Thursday 8-9pm
- Sunday 7-8pm
The last 15mins of each class is for practice and questions.
We also have an Improver class that runs for the hour after the beginner classes where we take you through the next steps of each dance.
You can book onto our Adult Beginner Ballroom and Latin American dance classes on the below calendar or, generally, just turn up on the night.
At LearnToDance we offer a variety of dance styles and levels. In addition we also provide First Dance choreography and run regular Social Events.
Classes and private lessons run throughout the week and are mainly based at our dedicated studio in Burnham.
