Course description

Dance - Ballroom & Latin American Dance - Beginners Cont'd

What will we cover?

The aim of this course is to continue learning the basic steps of Latin and Ballroom dances, with Beginner level variations.

You will learn the basic steps of dances like the social foxtrot, quickstep, waltz, rumba and cha cha cha, including variations on these dance steps, at a beginner level. You will also learn to recognise the musical rhythm and structure governing those dances and how to dance socially with your partner.

Our courses build on past learning, week by week, to develop new abilities. You will find your own progress much easier if you attend every lesson.

Who is this course for? Is there anything I need to know before joining?

This course is for Beginners who have already done the previous two terms of Beginner level Ballroom & Latin American Dancing. If you have only done one term, please speak to your tutor about the suitability of this course, or contact the Customer Service Team by emailing adultlearning@surreycc.gov.uk, to be put in touch with the tutor.

It is not suitable for brand new beginners.

This is generally a couple’s dance and it is expected that partners will enrol together.

As our courses are taught in English, please contact us if you have any concerns about your level of English.

What do I need to bring to the first class? Will there be any extra costs?

Wear comfortable clothing that will allow you to move easily.
Footwear - for ladies, heeled shoes that hold the foot, preferably with straps, not flip flops nor flat pumps.
For gentlemen, leather soled shoes, not trainers. Dance shoes preferable, but optional.
It is not necessary to acquire Latin shoes at Beginner level.
If you wish to purchase appropriate shoes, please ask the tutor, so that they can advise you on suitable brands and suppliers.

However learners may wish to invest in appropriate dance footwear.

What can I do when I finish the course?

This course completes the academic year, and you are encouraged to re-enrol in the following academic year on an Improvers course.
