Keeeep Dancing!

Strictly fever has gripped the nation once again so what better way to join the party than by learning the dances yourself?

Much like all the celebrity contestants on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, you will likely fall somewhere on the scale of absolute beginner to seasoned pro when it comes to Latin and Ballroom. Whatever your level, you’ll find something to channel your inner Anton/Oti/Giovanni/Jowita in our programme of classes at The Dance Space.

Even Craig would be showing his 10 paddle when confronted with this sizzling choice of dance!

Rumba Latina

Mondays, 6.30pm

This class captures the spirit of the Latin side of Strictly, encompassing different international rhythms, with a focus on Latin rhythms (Salsa, Reggaeton, Merengue, Cumbia, Bachata, etc). Led by Federico Bedoya, this class distils the essence of Zumba, which originates from Colombia where it was initially called Rumba.

All ability levels are welcome, and you can arrive alone or with friends as no partner work will be taking place. Book your place here.


Mondays, various times

OK - so this isn’t ‘strictly’ a dance on the show, but it has all the required drama and passion so gets included anyway. Our class teacher Helena ‘La Leyenda’ has been dancing Flamenco for over 30 years and has been teaching for more than 25 of them. On a Monday, she offers classes for two different ages of children (4-7)(8-12) and a class for adults of all abilities.
