We offer a wide range of ballroom dance classes, workshops, monthly dances, practice sessions and hosted ballroom dance cruises.

The core of our program are the 10-week Social Ballroom Dance courses, commencing from Level 1 and continuing all the way up to Bronze, Silver & beyond. Additionally, we also offer a wide variety of 5-week mini-courses which are ideal if you are not able to commit to a full 10-week course, or perhaps you only want to focus on one or two favourite dances, or maybe you would like to explore a new dance not included in the regular classes.

 Approach For More information on the our dance classes, our dancing approach and which class may be right for you please read Our Approach.

  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Our Studio

PRIVATE LESSONS FOR INDIVIDUALS, COUPLES & SMALL GROUPS

 Our Studio is available for private lessons for

  • extra help with the class material
  • to learn a particular dance
  • work on your technique
  • your own small group dance class

The Wedding Reception traditionally includes a solo dance for the Bride and Groom. This aspect of your special day deserves as much attention to detail as the ceremony, bridal dress and banquet, yet is often overlooked and too often the Bride and Groom simply "hug and sway", simply because they do not know what else to do. We do a great deal of wedding dance preparation and would be pleased to assist you.

Practice your dance figures, routines, and technique. Our practices are at large gyms so there is plently of space for you practice with the music that we play, or for you to focus on your own wiithout disturbing anyone else.

A staff member is on hand to provide music and help you where possible. New steps will not be taught but you can ask for help with a figure that we have taught you in one of our classes.

In lieu of a membership fee, you pay only for the sessions that you attend. This small charge helps to cover the cost of the hall and staff. A single session costs $5 pp, or you can purchase a punchcard, which is good for ten sessions for $45
