What you will learn

Social dancing is back in fashion so come and learn basic movements to some of the ballroom and Latin styles - as seen on TV and danced socially. You’ll learn not only steps but also coordination and timing, while making new friends and becoming fitter and more confident. This course is aimed at beginners and those returning to dance after time away. Each term during the year covers three different styles.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Demonstrate basic figures in the Quickstep, Rumba, and Paso Doble individually and in relation to a partner.
  • Demonstrate good technique at a basic level.
  • Identify and dance a style applicable and appropriate to a variety of music played.
  • Explain and show good dance etiquette.

  • Class format and activities

    You will learn as one of a group and in co-operation with others. The teacher will model the movement and describe it verbally. Learners will practise without and thereafter with a partner. Leaders and followers will change partners in a prescribed, systematic way (although those who wish to be exclusive will be accommodated). The teacher will provide individual feedback. Additional learning resources will be provided as appropriate.
