Adult Ballroom & Latin classes for Beginners to Advanced with the TLC dance school in Southampton every Monday.
Whether you are an Absolute Beginner wanting to learn all your Strictly favourites, or an existing dancer wanting to refresh your technique for tea dances/cruise holidays, we have it all at TLC! 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 and we teach in 3 week blocks so you really get to understand each dance.
As we want to keep you all as safe as possible, we are introducing a ‘Test on the day to enter’ policy.
Therefore please remember to take a lateral flow test at home on the same day as the class you are attending and bring:
– evidence of the negative result with you (NHS text or email to be shown at the desk)
– or bring the actual test stick with you.each class
Please DO NOT ATTEND if you are feeling unwell in any way or if you have had contact with someone who has had Covid.
In addition to this, we are taking the following measures:
- majority of bookings are taken in advance so we can limit numbers in classes
- partners can stay fixed if they wish
- encouraging frequent use of hand sanitisers / washing of hands
- providing good ventilation
We hope you can understand these measures are a temporary transition to ease us into normality.
Further details on each point are here
We can’t wait to see you all back with us and having some fun on the dance floor again.
However, we do understand that some of you may still be reluctant to return, and we totally get that – so we hope to see you at some point when you are ready.
Alternatively you can join Tracie online for her super fun LIVE Zoom Ballroom/Latin classes in conjunction with the Joy Club. Click here for details
