practice and improve our slow and Viennese waltz

New four week course of slow waltz and Viennese waltz taught by a professional male instructor. This week sees us splitting the first class up into two groups, beginners and improvers. Beginners will learn and practice the basics of slow waltz upstairs with our new apprenitice ballroom instructor Rainia Cryostomou. Improvers will stay downstairs with Barry and practice basic bronze level moves for slow and Viennese waltz.

Classes starts at 5.30 pm sharp and it's important for newcomers to arrive on time. The first classes end around  7pm. Then we have half an hour of social dancing from 7pm to 7.30 pm for students to practice. Our improvers' class will continue from 7.30 pm in slow and Viennese waltz, followed again by social dancing practice from 8.30 pm to 9pm. Then we have an intermediate level class for the more skilled students for one further hour.

From now on we will have our new second instructor, Rania, working with us every week, so absolute beginners can practice the basics at a more leisurely pace whilst the improver level  students can progress more quickly. The presence of our second instructor also means that students will start to receive more individual help and attention in our higher level classes and in the social dance practice half hours tea breaks.

Our classes average about thirty students, less for the highest level class. There are about even numbers of men and women, or leaders and followers, but this is less true at higher levels, so we particularly welcome experienced male dancers to join our group. Dancers who have previous experience in swing or tango are also very welcome

Our head trainer is male, experienced and emphasises posture, how to lead and follow well, and the more useful moves for social dancing rather than more competition oriented routines.

The average age of our students is about forty. Price is cheap at £6 per lesson or £15 for four consecutive weeks, and there's free tea and biscuits. The decision on which students  can attend which classes willl be made by our head instructor Barry. Any questions phone George on[masked]
