CORONAVIRUS RELATED CHANGES.
January 2021 sadly puts York back into Tier 3 so until we return to Tier 2 or better we are unable to run any classes. Once we return to Tier 2 for Salsa classes, based on covid guidelines, participants MUST be living in a Tier 2 area to attend Solo classes & for partner classes both Tier 2 and be same household or support bubble.
Classes are sold on a first come first serve basis so HURRY because, based on the list of names interested so far, these WILL SELL OUT for sure!
Remember strict Covid risk mitigation protocols are always in place, the details of which are emailed out to every student. Plus both Encuentro Latino and York Dance Space have Covid risk assessments available to view should you require.
Information: NOTE THESE WILL HAVE TO BE RESCHEDULED IF WE ARE NOT OUT OF TIER 3 IN TIME!

PLUS ‘Gently Ballroom’: Trained by Matthew Cutler from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing (winner in 07′ with Alesha Dixon) and James White of White Diamond Entertainment, Laucinda Roberts brings you her own brand ‘Gently Ballroom’. 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!!!
