Welcome

sit_olympics_1_400You’ve watched Dancing with the Stars, and you may think that you could never dance like that, but social dance steps are easier!

Beginner to Advanced

You can learn the basic steps to help you get started in your new fun activity at a beginners’ class. This will teach you to move around the floor without running into other dancers.

Ballroom dancing has four “styles”:

  • Modern – which includes Foxtrot, Quickstep, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Waltz
  • Latin – Cha Cha, Rhumba, Samba, Jive and Paso Doble
  • New Vogue – sequence dances (Australian origin)
  • Old Time – sequence dances (English origin)

Sequence dances are very popular, as everyone is doing the same thing at the same time, so you can get up and dance with a different partner and not worry too much about leading while you are learning.

As you progress, you will find a style and level that suits you – so come along and give it a try!
