Your Teachers For Absolute Beginners

Next Levels

Once you have mastered the basics in our Beginners Class, you may want to progress to the Improvers & Next Levels Classes. As all our classes are ongoing, not a set course timetable, so the decision when to move class is entirely yours.

We can help and give advice on this. Learning to dance is an individual skill. The more you attend and practise, the quicker you improve. When attending our improvers and Next Level Classes we will expand your knowledge of the technique in Ballroom and Latin.

We will also help you learn new figures to give you a wider variety of steps. Our Classes are fun and lively but carefully constructed from the vast experience and knowledge of your qualified teachers aimed at giving you confidence and enjoyment.

What our pupils say


Elaine knows how to break things down into easy stages and repeat until we are all getting it.  Added to that she has the perfect sense of humour.

Linda A.

The teachers are very, very patient and have a wealth of knowledge to teach us and we meet up with all the other dancers from their various classes at the social events.

Judith & Keith

Elaine and John‘s instructions are clear to follow, we try our best to get things right and sometimes we don’t however, we have learnt to laugh about this and carry on. Elaine and John are always on hand to encourage and support us where and when we need it.


Elaine and John are very attentive to individual couples’ needs to ensure steady progression and improvement.  Challenging – yes, fun – definitely, can anyone do it – most definitely!
