Ballroom Dancing is a broad term that covers both the traditional ‘Ballroom’ dances and ‘Latin American’

‘Ballroom’ dances are partner dances in a traditional hold, moving across the floor in a fluid manner – these include: Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz and Quickstep.

‘Latin American’ is full of hip movements and attitude.  Latin dances include: Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doblé and Jive

Our classes include:


You’ve never danced before? Think you have two left feet? Always wanted to try it, but thought it was too hard?

Beginner level is for people who would like to try dancing for the first time. These classes are designed to have you moving around the floor easily within the first few weeks of the class. The classes will introduce you to the basic fundamentals of dancing that will make you feel comfortable to get up at parties, balls and weddings. Dancing is fantastic exercise, and will become very addictive before you know it!

You do not need to have a partner to attend this class.

Bridal Dance

We are famous for our Bridal Dance lessons – let our capable team take care of you!

Your first dance as a married couple is a traditional moment, filled with great expectations from your friends and family – enjoy the moment and look back on it fondly forever.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and we will help to take away the stress of the situation with first class instruction from our team of professional instructors!  We will make you feel comfortable and confident in your dancing, by choreographing steps that will go perfectly with your chosen song.  Whether you are looking to do something simple to a song that has special meaning to you, or a more elaborate ‘bridal party’ routine, we can tailor this to your needs.

You will already have an idea of what song you want to use, however we can help guide you on song choice if you have a particular style of dance that you wish to do. We can also customise packages for other members of the bridal party, or for the Father/Daughter dance.

We have flexibility to accommodate your busy schedule – contact us to arrange a time
