We organise Ballroom Dancing Workshops during the school holidays. These sessions are open to teenagers, adults and seniors.
We scheduled four Ballroom Dancing sessions in January on Tuesdays as follows:
7.01.2020: 7.00 - 8.30 pm
14.01.2020: 7.00 - 8.30 pm
21.01.2020: 7.00 - 8.30 pm
28.01.2020: 7.00 - 8.30 pm
We will focus on the Modern Waltz, the Foxtrot and the Quickstep. If time allows it, we may also look at doing some simple Sequence dances.
On various occasions there are more ladies than men in the dancing scene. Therefore, we will also customize the dances to suit those who want to dance as solo.
These sessions will help you get on the dance floor with more confidence at social nights and different dance events you may attend.
