Latin and Ballroom Dance Classes in Bristol
Slow Waltz (Ballroom)
We teach the waltz basic step during the first few weeks of the beginner class. Nothing as complicated as you see in the video here but we all have to start somewhere.
Cha Cha Cha (Latin)
You will get to try this dance as we start our beginners class with the cha cha cha. It is easy to get started with this and you will quickly see why people love dancing.
There are two sorts of dance called foxtrot. They share many characteristics (including the music) but the “Slow foxtrot” requires more experience so we start teaching that after a few terms and stick to the simpler “Rhythm Foxtrot” for our beginners.
Don’t worry Craig wont be watching you. Lots of people like the rumba because it is slow and gives them more time to remember the steps!
This video is actually showing some advanced steps. We’ll start you on the basics which are easier and we keep the mix of rhythms simpler than they do on Strictly.
The Tango is an instantly recognisable dance because of the music and by the characteristic stalking and staccato movements which makes it a lot of fun to dance. Think drama and passion and you’re well on your way!
Tango is a slightly more advanced dance so we don’t teach it until dancers have done a few terms with us. They will then have many of the necessary skills to do this dance.
Viennese Waltz (Ballroom)
Because of the speed of this dance we wait until students have enough experience before starting to teach it.
