Class FAQ

Class & Social Dance Guidelines

We are asking all dancers to:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly and/or hand sanitise when you arrive and throughout the class where appropriate.
  • Not to come to class if you are displaying any cold symptoms, particularly if you have a raised temperature, a continuous cough or loss of taste or smell (or have displayed any of these symptoms in the last 7 days).
  • Not to come to class if you have been in contact with anyone who has had any of the above symptoms in the last 10 days.

What you can expect from us:

  • We will also abide by the above guidelines and provide the following:
  • A clean and well-ventilated environment
  • Hand sanitiser gel will be available at all times.
  • There will be a refund/credit policy for any cancellations in case of changes to government guidance (such as local lockdowns etc) or if you are self isolating.

All our classes are subject to our Safe Space Code of Conduct


Do I need to wear a face mask to your events?

Under current government guidance masks are not required and have never been recommended whilst exercising, however if you feel you would like to wear one until you dance or all of the time, then that is absolutely fine and equally if you choose not to wear one at all that is also absolutely fine.

Will I stay with my own partner at the classes?

No, not for the whole evening. All our classes have a rotation policy as it is important for the social side of the dance and also is the best way to learn the moves and how to lead and follow. You will have though have plenty of time to dance with your partner during the class as you rotate and also in the practice time afterwards. 

Do I need to have any dance experience to join the classes?

No, the beginners classes are designed for absolute beginners. You will learn a new move each week step by step and then revise the previous week's move. 

What should I wear to class?

Wear something comfortable to move in and ideally a smooth flat soled shoe.

I am still nervous about coming, will I feel silly if I can't get the moves right?

We understand that, however all the classes are fun and friendly and the main thing is to have fun and there is no pressure to get everything right. Remember 'we don't make mistakes, they are just variations'.

What sort of age group are the people who come to your classes?

Our classes are for anyone 18 and over, so we have all ages from 18 through to 80 plus. The classes are designed to suit all and you can take them at your own pace.
