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. One at our studio and one at a Leisure Centre in Maidenhead.
The class at our studio runs on a Tuesday afternoon 1pm-2.30pm including tea & coffee practice time. Please bring your own mugs though!
The Friday class for the RBWM takes place at Braywick Leisure Centre in Maidenhead from 2pm-3.45pm. This is part of their S.M.I.L.E. initiative.
How Much Do The Over 50s Ballroom and Latin American Classes Cost?

The Friday classes are subsidised by RBWM. Classes cost £4.50pp (with an advantage card) or £7.20 without.
Can I Come On My Own?
You are welcome to come to our classes on your own. We cannot always guarantee a partner but we will make our way round to ensure everyone gets to dance.
Do You Have a Timetable?
Below you can see our Class Timetable for the coming week. To see further ahead, just change the date at the top of the schedule.
You can also book yourself into any of the sessions using the ‘Book’ option next to the class.
If there is no book option, the class or course may be fully booked or the booking window has closed.
It may be possible to still book in but you will need to contact us to confirm availability.
Where's My Class Gone?
Those classes that are term time only won’t show on the schedule outside of Buckinghamshire school term dates.
Sometimes we may introduce new classes, or remove old ones, depending on demand and scheduling requirements.
Do I Just Dance With My Partner?
Those that come with a partner can stay with their partner for the full session - we don't force couples to swap partners.
What If I Don't Have a Partner?
If you don't have a partner that's not a problem. Although we can't always guarantee even numbers, we'll do our best to make sure you get plenty of dances.
Please note however we ask you to please wear a mask if partnering our teachers.
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.
