Laura - “The best result I have got so far is confidence and friends!”
I always wanted to dance but never did it as a child so thought it would be impossible to pick up as I wasn't particularly fit or supple. I went along with my sister one night and got hooked. Didn’t need a dance partner, didn’t really need rhythm and didn’t matter that I had two left feet! I felt like a 'dancer' after the first night. See more
Nick - “After going out dancing, you feel energised, alive, happier, and more able to face the world”.
I spent a couple of years trying to pluck up the nerve to try a dance class, before I finally took the plunge. I had always been very self-conscious about dancing, and was convinced that I was a no-hoper. Then, one day, I decided to go for it. I had heard that modern jive was one of the easiest to learn, so decided that was the one for me.
I was completely out of my comfort zone, but everyone was so friendly and helpful, which really made a difference. After a few classes, I started to feel exhilarated. “I’m doing it, and it really is easy”, I thought. See more
During this time of uncertainty as to when social distancing will be eased enough for our classes to get back to normal, we have decide to take our classes online.
We have 2 levels (which are called “tiers” on Patreon) to choose from, there is a beginners to improvers tier suitable for the complete beginner right up to the improver level, plus an intermediate tier.
With each tier we will be uploading and adding one class a week to your chosen level. The cost is just £10.00 per month + VAT making the weekly classes only £3 which is cheaper than a coffee in town - in the olden days when we were allowed out!
This is all done via a website called Patreon it’s free to register and you can find us at:-
