Absolute Beginners class - are you interested?
At present C2C are running 3 classes over 3 hours on a Tuesday evening, so our schedule is tight.
If you are interested in attending as an absolute beginner, it would be great if you would register your interest below. Once we have sufficient interest, we will see if and how we can start a new set of classes.
We cover the following dances:
Latin: Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Jive, Paso Doble; Samba and Salsa
Ballroom: Waltz, Quick Step, Ballroom Tango, Viennese Waltz and Foxtrot
We also do some sequence dancing which helps joining in on social occasions! Each week you will learn basic steps for one Ballroom and one Latin dance; the dances are repeated the following week, before moving on to another two dances for two weeks after that. Once the cycle is complete, we start again, refresh our steps and gradually build on steps and dance technique. Learning to dance is a slow process, but signing up for a 6 week set of classes is a start.
If you would be interested in this, please register your interest below. This does not commit you to anything yet! We will e-mail you when we are in a position to start a new set of classes and advertise through our FB page and the Blagss website.
We look forward to seeing you soonish!!
