About this course
This course it's open to all and we'll focus on laying the foundations of the dance. By the end of the first 6 classes you'll have developed a repertoire that will allow them to enjoy, interpret and dance freely at social events.
The class are designed to build skills gradually, therefore we recommend to keep a degree of consistency in the attendance.
The main language of class will be English.
