Adults Dance Classes
Dance is one of the most popular UK leisure pastimes and millions attend a class each week. Popular trends may come and go but Dance itself always evolves and is here to stay!
Research shows dancing helps keep the mind sharp, improves balance, posture, fitness and, can even help to improve the quality of your life. Dancers become quicker-thinking and lighter on their feet. By learning to lead and follow, couples can improve their communication skills and, because you can choose to learn with others in class it can also be a great boost to your social life too.
We have been teaching in Cardiff for over 21 years and you can learn to Dance with us either by joining in a group class (held on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays) or if you prefer by taking private lessons (available daytime or evenings from Tuesdays to Fridays).
In most of our Dance classes we will both teach you. You benefit from the experience of two teachers and get tuition from both the male and female dancer’s perspective. As we learned Ballroom and Latin American Dance together as a couple from beginner level upwards, we understand how you are likely to feel throughout the learning process and aim to help you along the way.
Beginners – although small these are often our most popular classes. Courses run progressively to let you build up your dancing skills. Starting off with no experience, by the end you should be able to dance a short sequence of basic steps in at least 4 or 5 dances (waltz, quickstep, social foxtrot, cha-cha, rumba etc.). New courses start throughout the year.
Our next new courses for this year start again
on Wednesday 8.30pm from 18 September 2019, at Gwaelod-y-Garth Village Hall, Cardiff .
Thursday evenings from 8.15pm to 9.15pm at Canolfan Community Church Centre, Rhiwbina, Cardiff.
If you are a beginner we would love to see you . Please get in touch for more details on the next courses.
Improvers (Tuesdays at 7.30pm)– this class is for those who have covered the basics at beginner level and want to continue dancing . We teach more steps and add extra dances (e.g. tango, jive etc.). If you have previous basic experience and want to join us from this level speak to us first, to check if this class is going to be suitable for you .
Intermediates (Wednesdays at 7.30pm)– our most advanced group class. We aim to improve on dance technique, add some more difficult dances (e.g. slow foxtrot, samba) and include more choreography. If you are looking for a class to join at this level it is best to speak to us first, to check if this class will be suitable for you.
As well as group classes we also give:-
Private tuition/ 1 to 1s . Many people cannot commit to joining weekly for a regular group class and prefer to learn at their own pace at times that work for them without being part of a group.
Wedding dance choreography and tuition. We teach couples preparing for that special occasion who only want to perfect one special dance, such as the first dance for their wedding.
Semi-private classes for small groups of friends/family.
All of these can be arranged with us by appointment.
We aim to have a couple of events throughout the year that all our students may join in to meet up socially and dance together.
Gift packages – As a popular gift idea, you can book a private lesson or pre-paid block of lessons to be given to someone special (or even better shared with them)
as a gift.
National Association of Teachers of Dancing –as member teachers of this Association we can offer the opportunity for students to take amateur medal tests for those that wish to participate.
Other dance events such as short courses, dancing parties for special occasions, or short workshops may be arranged on request.
we also run an improver class plus a new beginners class on Thursday evenings at Canolfan Community Church Centre, Rhiwbina, Cardiff.
Private lessons can be booked all year through by appointment at either venue.
