New to dance?
We have two beginner classes (6-7pm Tuesdays and Thursdays at Mt Pleasant community Centre). We structure the classes so you can join in anytime, so if you’d like to pop in, just let us know! As we limit class sizes, we recommended sending us a text just to check there is space. So if you have been thinking about dancing – here is your chance to give it a go! A reminder that no partner is needed. For more info, give us a call or drop us an email.
Full details of the classes, dance styles and times can be found on the timetable.
If you’d like to come with your partner, you are most welcome, and you will be able to dance with them the entire night (we won’t make you or your partner dance with anyone else unless you both want to).
