The format for both evenings is the same with a lesson at either improver or medallist standard, during the first hour. Then during the second hour music is played covering all the Ballroom and Latin dances for you to practice to or you can have refreshments and just catch up with friends.

There are usually two classes running during the lesson, one which is aimed at the more experienced dancer in which we teach figures of silver and above including variations. The other for the beginner/improvers with a little knowledge of all the dances (enough to get around the floor).
