Interested in having the steps broken down at a slower pace?
In these 2 hour weekend workshops, we break the footwork down before practising to music. A perfect opportunity to answer questions and practice in a safe and supportive environment.
This is followed by the perfect antidote as we drop down to the mats and move the body through a series of stretches - focusing on lengthening the muscles and fascia that we use in dance. We build awareness and strengthen the core and pelvic floor, and use the breath to deepen our connection to our body as we open it up slowly and with ease.

FAQ's - Strictly Dance
Do I have to have dance experience?
No, you can enjoy Strictly Dance classes having had no dance experience at all, or equally, if you’ve enjoyed dancing before. Classes are for those who are interested in learning rhythms and patterns of the Ballroom and Latin styles and dancing to them in a fun way.
What do I wear?
Clothing that allows you to move freely while heating the body. Indoor trainers are required.
Do I have to be a certain fitness level?
No, classes are designed so that you can choose your level of intensity, building your fitness gradually. Equally you can use the class to build strength and stamina.
How complicated are the classes?
We dance the steps in patterns so that repetition allows you to master the footwork, once you have the rhythm and the steps you can then build on your technique and style. All steps are danced immediately to music so it’s easy for you to find then keep the rhythm. Classes are in a mirrored studio so you have plenty of spatial awareness …and other people’s feet to watch!
How long are classes?
Classes are 1 hour which includes an all-important warm-up and cool down.
Do I need a partner?
