Got 2 Left Feet?

  • Would you like to learn some versatile basic steps with easy variations that you can use no matter what the music or occasion?
  • Do you pose as a wallflower at your friend’s parties and weddings?
  • Are you getting married soon and need a few steps for your opening dance?
  • Has your better half been begging you for ages to learn to dance?
  • Learn to dance for fun, fitness or that fast approaching Wedding on one of our popular 7-week Beginner Survival Dance Courses.

Learning to dance in a group class is a social and affordable way to get introduced to the world of social Ballroom / Latin dancing. A great start is to do one of my popular beginner Survival Dance Courses to get a feel for the easiest and most popular social dancing favourites. The classes are suitable for all adult ages.

Ideal for:

  • The Absolute Beginner with "2 left feet"
  • Wedding couples
  • Anyone wanting a good introduction to ballroom / latin dancing
  • No experience needed. You do require a partner for this group.

The atmosphere and teaching style in this class is very relaxed. Lessons take place at the elegant Kelvin Grove club in Newlands, which offers added facilities like bars/restaurants. Parking is ample and safe.

Dances you will learn the include the Boogie, Foxtrot, Waltz, Salsa and Bachata. Each course is limited to 12 couples, so please book early.

*We also have Follow-on classes (Improvers to Advanced) for couples who wish to continue. Please email me to find out more about these classes.
