Why learn to dance?

According to the Open Access Government website, the benefits of dancing are huge. Regular dancing is great for losing weight, maintaining strong bones, improving posture and muscle strength, increasing balance and co-ordination, and also for beating stress. There’s also evidence that regular dancing can improve both heart health and mental health.

There’s never been a better time to learn to dance. Our beginner’s courses always fill up fast and numbers are strictly limited, so please contact us as soon as possible to book your place.

If you would like to sample what we offer before signing up for a course, we are offering a free taster evening in September, for complete beginners only. It’s on Thursday 12th September 2024, at 7.30 pm. We’ll cover some latin dances and some ballroom too, so that you can get a good 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!
