Welcome everyone!

Join us for superb adult Ballroom & Latin classes for Beginners to Advanced with the TLC dance school in Southampton every Monday (except Bank Holidays & Christmas).
We teach all your Strictly Ballroom favourites and it’s a great way to gain confidence on the dance floor or refresh your technique for tea dances and cruise holidays!  We teach in a very organic way so that dancers learn how to lead and to follow with improvisation, rather than learn choreography.  Without the pressure of exams or medals we have a lot of fun on the dance floor. 
The format & prices of our classes is shown below.
We have our wonderful 4-week cycle of Beginners Ballroom & Latin courses throughout the year, and the schedule of dances is listed below.
We assume you know nothing or very little about dance in these courses and we will guide you through the basics of each dance.
Click here and go for it!  Book your place now as places are very limited.
For those who have danced before, we have:
Level 2 with Claire – suitable for those with the basics & rhythm of each dance – ie Bronze level
Level 3 with Tracie – suitable for those who are very confident with the rhythm and simple moves in each dance – ie Silver/Gold
With the new format, you now have the choice to attend either all the ballroom classes in the first hour, or all the Latin classes in the second hour.  Or you can do both classes each evening and really get prepared for the dance floor whatever music is playing!  You can pay for a  4-week discount pass, starting on the first Monday of each month and coinciding with the new 4-week beginners courses.  Or you can pay on a weekly basis via the online shop or on the door with cash or card.
Looking forward to seeing you and having some fun on the dance floor.  Just  click this button and go for it!
Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell with viral symptoms, such as a cold, flu, sore throat, cough, Covid symptoms or if you have had contact with or live with someone with Covid.  Thank you.
