Elegant, gentle paced, recreational Ballroom dance steps for those looking for a touch of class in their class who want to exercise in style to their favourite easy music, plus a little Latin thrown in for good measure!!! No partner required. Maybe you fancy the Foxtrot, query the Quickstep or are wondering about the Waltz? This one hour class is designed for all but will also suit those who are more mature, less fit, or maybe recovering from injury. Let’s not forget the social aspect too. You are sure to meet friends old and new and enjoy the community feel this will bring. So what are you waiting for? Keeeep dancing!!!
