Mon 7 Oct: Foxtrot beginners course
Mon 4 Nov: 4 Week Quickstep Absolute Beginners’ Course at 7.30pm
We have Ballroom classes for all levels run by TLC, but for our lovely beginners we have 3 or 4 week courses in the three most popular styles of Waltz, Quickstep & Foxtrot. Booking is required for these courses as they are always over subscribed.
Other Ballroom styles are taught for 1 or 2 weeks at a time (including classes for Absolute Beginners) – there is no need to book in advance for these non-course classes.
Here at TLC we pride ourselves on providing a friendly, caring and sociable club, whilst delivering excellent teaching of the fundamentals of ballroom technique. We feel it is essential to master the basics in order to be able to dance socially, and we therefore offer a 4 week course for beginners (Level 1). We assume you know nothing, and our courses will cure anyone of 2 left feet syndrome! No partner is necessary as we rotate partners, which helps meeting new friends. Take the chance, it might just change your life!
As an Absolute Beginner, you can either sign up for a whole course of Waltz, Quickstep or Foxtrot and you can start on either week 1 or week 2 (the course price remains the same). Alternatively you can try one of our few non-course classes for beginners in any of the other Latin styles (see our forthcoming schedule of classes on the main Ballroom page). Each lesson is 1 hour (on some nights we have 2 styles with 1 hour for each style) and there is 30 minutes of social dancing / practice included after the second class. As we have had huge demand for our courses, we have added an additional course at 6.30-7.30pm for Beginners Level 2, who have done 1 or 2 courses with us before and has a slightly faster pace than that of the Absolute Beginners, where we assume you know nothing. Please enrol for your course where advanced booking is essential to secure your place as spaces are limited.
Our standard drop-in classes are £5 each (concessions £3), so the course is discounted. The concession price is for NUS and those from the Isle of Wight. You will need to produce a valid NUS card, ferry ticket, etc on the door. Enrolment needs to be paid for before the start date of the course to secure your place.
Vouchers for a course can be a wonderful present and are valid for a year from the date of purchase. They can be redeemed to start at the beginning of any of our courses, subject to booking availability.
