Charleston from 19th September
A forty minute session for just £4. Initially we will accept new beginners each week. This works as an exercice session and as a dance class and you can tackle the content at your personal energy and fitness level - we will show you how. We will work on Charleston and some other jazz steps, creating a short sequence each week: over time you will gradually master a wide vocabulary of solo steps . We will also spend some time showing you how these steps could be danced with a partner. This class is a great way to deveop general dance ability. Charleston can also be used in Jive and Swing dancing to add variation.
JIve Levels 1 and 2 started 22 August
Level 1 Jive is a forty minute session for just £4 and at first you will need to join on one of our regular start dates where we will teach you the basic elements to get you started: we recommend a 4-week introduction course for just £14.
