Your teachers are Joo-Lee & Andy from Durham and Helen & Rich from Cumbria.

Joo-Lee & Andy have helped thousands of adult beginners to find their dancing feet through their warm, engaging and entertaining style of teaching. You can expect them to break down the moves into simple steps so that your learning experience is easy and enjoyable.

Helen and Rich make their classes a lot of fun by their sense of humour and they build confidence in their dancers by their attention to detail. They love developing connection, musicality and flow in their dancing; believing simple things done well are beautiful!

The sessions are aimed at absolute beginners, so you don’t need to worry about not knowing the moves or the lingo, and you can expect a relaxed and informal atmosphere with everything being explained clearly and simply so you never miss a beat.

You don’t need a partner, or any previous experience whatsoever, so whether you sign up with friends, or just by yourself, you can rest assured in the knowledge that you will be taking the first step to learning a brand-new skill!
