Our team of dance teachers keep themselves busy six days a week with adult classes, wedding first dance couples, private lessons, medal examinations, corporate and private functions, social dances and instruction for children and teenagers.
We are also proud to provide dance tuition for many charity/community groups throughout Greater London and passionately believe everybody should learn to dance as dancing is a unique way of feeling happier and fitter!
