Each Latin dance (Rumba; Cha-Cha; Jive; Samba; Paso Doble; and West-coast Swing) will be taught in this class from Pre-Bronze (Beginner) to Gold “by the book”. You don’t require a dance partner to learn these dances, but if you do have one then great stuff! This is a fun way to get to know other dancers who are on the same level as you and bring out your inner fire.
* Due to Covid-19 we please ask you to come with a partner from the same household*
Drop in spaces available but due to limited class numbers you must book in advance. Please contact Chanel to book your space.
Age Group: Open to all ages
