MODERN BALLROOM (otherwise known as the Standard dances or some may know them as swing dances or Jazz) often danced to big band jazz music well known from the 40's era.
These include: Modern Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Viennese Waltz and Tango
These dances can be the simplest to learn or the most complicated depending upon the movements and the routine. The dances can be a choreographed set of steps or danced freestyle once a basic knowledge of linking the steps is achieved.
Some classes will suit a couple or wedding party wishing to learn for a Wedding Dance, depending on the music chosen and the style of dance. Modern or Viennese Waltz and Foxtrot are popular for traditional wedding dances; tango and quickstep can make for something more interesting & lively.
The class will be suited to people who are beginner to intermediate level and each class member will be given a set of steps to suit their ability. Advanced people are most welcome to come to practice their basics. Advanced routines (equivalent to level 4/5 competitive routines) are too complex however to teach properly in general class and will be referred to private lessons.
