Perfect for people who have never danced any ballroom in their life, or if you started last term and are looking to brush up your basics. This class will cover the ‘Core 4’ dances of Waltz, Cha Cha, Quickstep and Jive.

Beginner Extension

This class will get you started on the remaining six dances: Tango, Samba, Foxtrot, Rumba, Viennese Waltz and Paso Doble. Good for social dancers to maximise your time on the dance floor. Again no previous dancing experience is required!


This class will extend your knowledge of the Core 4 dances, teaching you routines that are restricted syllabus and suitable for competitions. It will also start to develop your dancing technique. After IVDC we will move on to look at some of the other dances. We recommend dancing experience of at least 1 year.

Novice Extension

A class to give a good grounding for the restricted syllabus steps of the remaining 6 dances. This will help you when you move into competing at an Intermediate or higher level. We recommend dancing experience of 1 year.


This class will teach open choreography for all ten dances, and focus more heavily on technique. We recommend dancing experience of 2+ years.
