Beginners Course: 19:00 - 20:00
Our Beginners Course here at The Dance Lab is a 4 week course run every Monday night from 7pm - 8pm where we focus on one Ballroom dance and one Latin dance a month, learning some of the basics in a very social environment. Our Beginners course is made specially for people who have got very little to zero experience in dancing so if you have done now dancing prior to this course, you have nothing to worry about! As everyone else in the course is in the same position as well, it creates a lovely social atmosphere full of fun and laughter.
