72847bLearn to dance, great for fitness and social interaction, Strictly Ballroom runs a fun and friendly beginners dance class each Wednesday night (except Christmas period). The class is a gentle introduction to ballroom dancing, ideally suited to people that have never danced before.

There is no need to book, just come along. Experienced ‘helpers’ are on hand to guide you through the lesson.

Clothing: Casual non-restrictive clothing. Comfortable shoes with moderate grip, thongs are not recommended.


Dances taught in the beginners class include: Barn Dance, Cha Cha Cha, Evening Three Step, Gypsy Tap, Progressive Jive, Progressive Samba, Slow Rhythm, Square Rumba and the Two Step. (During the class you will learn 4 – 5 dances)

Bringing your own partner is not necessary but highly encouraged as it gives you someone to practice with when you get home! Dances are taught in a progressive manner, in a large circle while regularly swapping to the next partner.

If you would like to practice the dances you have just learned, there is a social dancing class commencing at 8:00pm. It is an ideal opportunity to stay on and practice and also learn new dances from our friendly couples. See ‘Social Dancing’ for more information.
