SCHOOL OF DANCING
Specialising in Ballroom and Latin American dancing since 1971.
Based in and around the Dorchester area.
We would firstly like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our site and choosing us to help you take your first steps.
Ballroom dancing is the best hobby whether you are looking to do something together as a couple or even looking for a social activity to meet new people.
Our favourite thing is seeing the friend groups develop.
There really is nothing else quite like it! Once you start you will be hooked for life and wonder why you hadn't tried it before.
The hardest part is coming through the door. We are a family run Dance School with a lovely bunch of loyal dancers who will, along with us, give you a warm welcome and be more than happy to offer you support and encouragement.
What have you got to lose?
We look forward to seeing you very soon.
Eileen and Gemma xx

NEW Beginners are welcome to join our Thursday evening classes at anytime throughout the year.

On Tuesday evening Gemma runs a catch up class, re capping all the steps Eileen taught to the class the previous Thursday. This class is purely to TWEAK not to Teach.

No matter your level of skill or experience, you’ll gain a lot from taking One-to-One Lessons. Whether you would like to perfect your steps or train towards your exam. Contact me to find out about availability.
The Intermediate class is ideal for people who have been dancing for 2 years plus. In this class you will learn more complex routine variations, technique and even more popular sequence dances.
On Monday and Thursday evenings Eileen runs an Intermediates class for those of you wanting to learn more technique.

ONE - TO - ONE LESSONS
Private Lessons are popular if you are looking for the individual attention helping you to learn at your own pace and to provide the extra support you may need.
It gives you the opportunity to focus on a particular style or dance. It may be that you feel you need to catch up as you have been away on holiday, in preparation for an examination, a first dance at your wedding, or simply to achieve a greater understanding of how to glide round the floor effortlessly!
We can provide private lessons 5 days a week in 1 hour slots for individual dancers, together as a couple or even a small group of 3 couples, the price remains the same either way.
If private tuition is something that might be of interest to you please contact Eileen or Gemma today to discuss available times and days.
* Each lesson is £27 per hour.
If you're looking to add that special touch to your wedding day by surprising all of your guests with a one off, unique first dance, then look no further.
Whether you already have a song in mind or need help choosing a piece of music, would like to do a tradition Waltz, fully choreographed dance or just a few turns. We are here to provide the support you need to achieve the end result you are looking for.
We do not believe in 'price packages' as every couple has a different vision for their first dance and a set amount of lessons may not be suited to you. Some couples only need or want two or three sessions, where others may want more.. We do not charge extra for this service just because you are getting married so the price is the same for a standard private lesson.
£27 per hour and you can pay as you go.
If you have any questions or would like more information please contact Gemma today to talk about the best options for you.
We look forward to hearing from you.
