Quickstep & Rumba 6-week course

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

We are starting a Quickstep & Rumba 6-week course here at the studio in July for Beginners & Improvers.

The 6-week course will start on Thursday 1st July and continue until 5th August. Beginners class starts at 7.30pm and Improvers class starts at 8.30pm. Over the six weeks we will cover both Quickstep & Rumba and put together a sequence for both dances by the final week.

No partner is necessary and if you would like to sign up for the course or have any questions, just drop us an email at

All places on the course have to be pre-booked to ensure we don’t have too many of you squeezed on to the dance floor!

Great Song Choices!

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

This year we have definitely noticed a change in the music being chosen for first dances. There have been so seriously cool and unusual choices this year – more than any other year!

So far our favourites this year have been Kings of Leon – Use Somebody, AIR – All I Need, Jason Mraz – I’m Yours & Paolo Nutini – Pencil Full of Lead.

The most important thing we tell couples is don’t worry if you think a song is too slow / too fast – as long as you like it, that’s the main thing!!

And remember our top tips for choosing the perfect First Dance song:
1) Listen to the lyrics carefully!
2) Check how long the song is – don’t go over 5 minutes!!
