Gemma runs 10-week courses for Beginners to learn basic steps in Latin and Ballroom dance styles.
There are lots of different reasons people choose to learn - perhaps you and your partner have a work or social event coming up which you'd like to be able to enjoy in a new way. Perhaps you have caught the 'Strictly' bug and fancy having a go yourself, or perhaps you are looking for a fun way to increase and maintain your fitness whilst being able to socialise and meet new friends!
Whatever your reasons, here you will find all of the information you need to take those first steps with confidence!
My classes are run in a fun and encouraging way; often the thought of dancing with a partner can make people very nervous, but let me assure you that there is no need to be! Even if you think you have 'two left feet' and can't dance - I will get you dancing and feeling confident in no time!
