While restrictions are in place there is no contact while dancing unless you are dancing within your family bubble. Although masks should be worn to enter the premises, they are not necessary during class unless you feel safer in doing so.
Latin American Covers five distinct Latin rhythms Chacha, rumba, samba, paso doblè and jive. There are also alternative latin rhythms which include Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba and Argentine Tango which are available in private lessons.
Latin American dance is as popular today as when it was first bought to this country back in the 1930's. With the rhythms being popularized in the charts as well as Strictly Come Dancing, it has bought Latin American dancing to a new younger generation.
We offer classes for both children and adults which cover all seven rhythms. Children follow the ISTD medallist system within their classes, those that wish to compete at "friendly" or National medallist level take regular private lessons in addition to group classes, some with their regular partner and some on their own. All children's group classes take place in our production shows.
For Latin American we start children from baby class at the age of 3 and then progress through to adult level. Take a look at our children's classes timetable for classes available. With all of the children's classes please phone or email to see if there are actually spaces available. We do run a waiting list scheme for classes that are full.
For adults, Latin American dancing is covered in our beginner, improver and experienced classes plus there are daytime private lessons available too. For Salsa, and Argentine Tango we run short courses and again private lessons. Salsa will cover various styles of Salsa such as Cuban, LA and New York.
These are available in sessions of 45 minutes and are perfect for those wishing to learn at there own pace, whether faster or slower. You can learn a mixture of dances, do just one specific style, concentrate on your technique for exams or competitions. Many of our students have regular weekly slots, daytimes and weekend times are easy to arrange with some evening slots also available from time to time. Private lessons can be booked with any one of our teachers or competitive coaches at a time convenient to you, and can be shared with your partner or just on your own with your teacher.
