Spring Term – 16th Jan – 3rd April

Improvers(+): 7:30 – 8:30

Intermediates: 8:30 – 9:30

St Barnabas Church Hall, Shacklewell Row, Dalston, London E8 2EA.

These classes run in 12 week termly blocks similar to school terms, and are pre-paid at the start of term. We are really looking forward to our new Spring term course starting on Tuesday 16th January 2017 (ends 3rd April).

If you’d like to “try before you buy” we will run the first class as a taster but please let us know if you’re intending to come along so we can manage numbers. You can still join the course after the term has started, just get in contact to find out how. Drop-in is not possible for either of the classes however. We like to work closely with our students and tailor the course to the needs of our students. It also helps us ensure a good balance between leads and follows so everyone gets a great class experience. A pre-paid course lets us build our lessons around our students to help our classes make lightning progress. The next course runs until April 3rd and bookings are now open.

Course Content

Improvers(+) – the 12 week course is split into 2 modules. Each class within that module will follow a similar format: we will go into the detail of a basic figure to understand how to dance with great technique. We’ll then extend that figure with a variation on a similar theme and end by introducing some completely new content that will add a bit of dazzle to your dancing. Each class contains some basic content, some improver level content and themes which go beyond most improver level course.  In particular, this term will focus on figures which require a two-handed connection as well as Swing Outs.

Intermediates – the 12 week course is split into 2 modules. In the first module we will be working with faster tempos of music and refining our Charleston technique. In the second module we will be working on partner connection in open position and how to adapt figures with rotation.
