If you’ve always wanted to learn to dance, now’s your chance! Our new adult beginners courses start in January 2022, at our dance studios in Newton Abbot. These classes will provide the foundations required for Ballroom and/or Latin dancing. You will enjoy a fun night out dancing to some great music in a relaxed atmosphere, whilst learning all the basics of dancing, so that you can join the dance floor with confidence.

Who are the beginners courses suitable for?

There are no entry requirements for these courses. If you’ve danced before but are very rusty, or you’ve never danced before at all – these courses are designed for you!

Which beginners courses are available at Danceworks Devon?

We have two 10-week courses available, both of which are suitable for complete beginners:

Why learn to dance?

According to the NHS website, regular dancing is “great for losing weight, maintaining strong bones, improving posture and muscle strength, increasing balance and co-ordination, and beating stress. There’s also evidence that regular dancing can improve heart health in older people.”

So there’s never been a better time to learn to dance. Our beginner’s courses are filling up fast and numbers are strictly limited, so please contact us asap to book your place.
