social dancing

Our Monday and Friday night classes are a great way to learn to dance and get fit, as well as meet new people.  Our dances are offered in 6 week Seasonal blocks, so take a look at the timetable below to see what is coming up next!

Please wear smart casual with a pair of comfortable shoes that will stay on your feet (for safety please don't wear thongs, slip on shoes without any backs or shoes with a plastic sole). We recommend you bring a spare pair of shoes in case the first pair feel too slippery. You will be surprisingly active, so dress comfortably and bring a towel and water.

Group Dance Classes for 2022

Ballroom dancing in Brisbane at Orchard's Dance Studio

Dance is a great way to learn a new skill and meet new people at the same time. Our group classes focus on learning the basic Latin and Ballroom dances, as well as partnering skills, floorcraft and musicality. These classes will give you the confidence to get up and dance at a wedding or special event.

Group Classes explained

Beginner (Mon 8:00-8:45 pm)– These classes are designed to start from the very beginning. Use these if you are a first time dancer, or if you are an intermediate dancer wishing to brush up on your basic technique.

Intermediate (Mon 8:45-9:30 pm) – During these classes we assume that you have an understanding of the beginner steps, and we go beyond this to look at new figures and areas of technique. Suitable also for advanced dancers wishing to brush up on your technique.

Advanced (Fri 8:00-8:45 pm)– During these classes we introduce you to a range of different figures and teach these at a slightly faster pace than Monday nights. It is assumed that you have an understanding of common basic figures in each dance.

Social Dancing (Fri 8:45-9:30 pm)– Practise what you have learnt in our group classes, following an industry approved Covid Safe Plan. This is a chance to get on the floor with our staff members and other learner dancers and dance the night away! Open to beginner, intermediate and advanced dancers.

Guided Training

Get serious about your dancing with our weekly guided training (alternates each week between latin and ballroom). We put you through your paces with warm ups, exercises and five straights. Suitable for anybody who, at a minimum, can dance the bronze level routines to music.

Technique Group Classes

Bronze and Silver level classes are an excellent way to build technique, develop your choreography and learn in a team environment.  Please contact us if you'd like advice on which class will best suit your ability level.  An optional medal examination can be performed after the block where an examiner will assess and comment on your performance.
