If you’ve always wanted to learn to dance, now’s your chance!

Our new beginners dance courses for adults start in January 2023, 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 the basics of dancing, so that you can join the dance floor with confidence.

Who are the beginners dance courses suitable for?

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

Which beginners dance courses are available at Danceworks Devon?

We have two 10-week courses to choose from (one latin and one ballroom). Both of these courses are suitable for complete beginners:

Our Ballroom Beginners Course will teach you the basics of all those Strictly Come Dancing ballroom favourites like the Waltz, Quickstep, Foxtrot and Ballroom Tango. This course starts on Thursday 12th January 2023.

Why learn to dance?

According to the Open Access Government website the benefits of dancing are fantastic. 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 and mental 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.

You can also buy online here; please remember you will need to add 2 items to your basket for a couple.

Not sure what to expect? Why not try before you buy?

If you would like to sample what we offer before signing up for a course, we are offering a free taster evening in January, for complete beginners only. It’s on Thursday 5th January 2023, from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm. We’ll cover a bit of latin and some ballroom too, so that you can get an idea of what our dance classes are like. It will be a fun and friendly evening; everyone’s welcome, and there’s no need to book – just turn up.
