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!
