As restrictions continue to ease across Queensland, rest assured that we are operating under an industry approved Covid Safe plan. Our classes will be structured for both partner and solo dancing, so that those who wish to remain social distanced can do so, but still get the most out of their class in terms of fitness and technique.
We would still prefer booking ahead so please contact Bec on 0422 967 267 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 2021
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.
RSPD (Fri 8:45-9:30 pm)– Recreational Structured Partner Dancing. 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.
There's been a lot of interest in a 'Recreational Class' to prepare dancers for Recreational DanceSport Competitions. Therefore we are going to trial some classes leading up to the next Queensland competition. We'll hold these on different days and times while we are trialling the idea.
The focus for these classes will be on Waltz, Cha Cha and Charmaine. The idea is to keep the routines simple and work on musicality, floorcraft, presentation and technique. Of course, attendance at competitions is not compulsory...if you wish to join this class simply to improve your dancing then you are more than welcome.
The first class will be held on Wednesday 14th April 7-8pm, $15 per person.
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.
Dancing FOR KIDS
Ballroom and Latin dancing is very beneficial for the development of children. We currently offer the following classes tailored towards children:
Technique Group Classes
Bronze and Silver level classes are an excellent way to build technique, develop your choreography and learn in a team environment. An optional medal examination can be performed after the block where an examiner will assess and comment on your performance.
