What you will learn

Social dancing is back in fashion so come and learn movements at improver level to some of the ballroom and Latin styles, while making new friends, becoming fitter and more confident. This course is aimed at those who are ready to progress one stage beyond beginner level. Each term during the year covers three different styles.

Learning Outcomes

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

  • Demonstrate improver level figures in the Quickstep, Rumba, and other Latin styles individually and in relation to a partner.
  • Demonstrate improved technique in all figures.


  • Full fee
  • Concession fee
  • 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.
