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.
Our Over 50s Ballroom and Latin American classes are fun social classes aimed at a mixed ability range of people.
Each week we look at two dances, one Ballroom and one Latin American. The classes commence with a recap of the previous week's dance, before looking at the next one in the rolling cycle.
The Over 50s Ballroom and Latin American classes are mixed ability classes and as such we are not always able to go over the basics of a dance. If you are a complete beginner you may wish to consider our Adult Beginner Classes.
Where and when are our Over 50s Ballroom and Latin American classes?
We have two classes that we run during the week:
- Tuesday afternoons 2pm-3.30pm at our Cherry Orchard Studio
- Friday afternoons 2pm-3.45pm at Magnet Leisure Centre
The Tuesday class is an hour of tuition, followed by a tea/coffee & practice break. Whereas the Friday class has the break in the middle.
How Much Do The Over 50s Ballroom and Latin American Classes Cost?
It costs £6 per person for the Tuesday afternoon class, £27 for 5 sessions (valid for 3 months) or £48 for 10 sessions (valid for 6 months).
The Friday class is £6.45 per person (£3.65 with an advantage card). An annual non-resident advantage card can be purchased for around £8 (for the over 60s) or £32 for adults.
Please note that the Friday class prices are set by the Leisure Centre and can be subject to change.
Can I Come On My Own?
You are welcome to come to our classes on your own.
Do You Do Sequence Dancing?
We don't do sequence dancing generally in the Over 50s Ballroom and Latin American dance classes. However we do run a monthly sequence dance workshop and practice session, normally on the last Sunday of the month.
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.
