We have a special ‘Beginner Survival Kit’ series which has been designed specifically for beginners. Once you have completed all the classes in this series you will be ready to try any of the other series. All other courses are suitable for intermediate level dancers and above. All courses begin with more basic techniques and moves and progress in difficulty throughout the course.

Absolutely! Although advanced dancers may be familiar with some of the moves and techniques that are taught in the classes, there is always more to learn! Advanced dancers can enrich their vocabulary, get new ideas for combining moves, refine their fundamental techniques, pick up new tips and techniques, improve their solo and partnership skills, and develop their style. Dancers who are teaching or interested in teaching can discover new ways of breaking down and explaining moves, practice exercises that can be used in classes, and collect lots of new ideas for class content.

If you are new to blues dancing then we recommend starting with the ‘Beginner Survival Kit’. This series is specially designed for beginners and will give you all the information you need to get out there and enjoy yourself on the dance floor.

For all other levels – improver, intermediate, advanced, masters (whatever label you like to use!) – we highly recommend starting with our Essential Skills series. This series includes skills and ideas that we believe are essential in becoming good, no… great blues dancers. The techniques and ideas explained in this series will underpin the majority of all our other classes. However, you are of course free to pick choose whichever courses interest you the most!

Not a problem! We have a whole series of solo blues courses, plus many of partnered classes contain tips and techniques that can be practised solo. So if you don’t have a partner don’t let it stop you!
