A Dedicated Dance Instructor
Dance is something I've been passionate about since I started learning as a child, then moving onto competitive dance as I grew up.
Now as a teacher, it brings me great pleasure to watch adults learn to dance, seeing people achieve results that they never thought possible. Encouraging people to reach their potential through dance is the very heart of what we do.
These days we have recently had to get used to a new way of teaching, keeping our clients safe is the main priority whilst maintaining our fun, accessible classes. Our classes are a little smaller, and we are learning in new ways, but the joy of learning to dance remains intact!
Update - group classes for household couples and individuals, Fitsteps for individuals and private lessons for household couples are all now in operation. For group classes the new term starts week commencing 30 August. Private lessons are available throughout the summer for couples and individuals and we will be offering a breakfast Fitsteps online session once a week with a recording if you can't make the live class. We are, of course, following all current guidelines to remain COVID-19 secure.
We are also now running Practice Nights every other Wednesday during the summer starting 28 July. Go to Group Lessons, click Book Now and see more information there.
Julie was one of our very first dance teachers when we started group lessons around 9 years' ago. More recently we've been taking private lessons with her. Julie's lifelong passion for dance is infectious and her teaching is delivered with structure and clarity, always aiming to help her students be the best dancers they can be. Julie instructs with the perfect combination of energy, purpose and humour and thanks to her expert guidance we have a new skill and new social avenues.

Two years ago we watched Strictly in awe every Saturday. We heard about Julie's dance school and plucked up courage to go. The group classes are brilliant fun, Julie breaks down the dances so well that you feel you're dancing almost immediately. After 55 minutes we left feeling we had already started to dance. Julie has a lovely natural cheerfulness and explains and demonstrates simply and clearly. We have learnt a good selection of ballroom and latin dances and have been brave enough to go to a Tea Dance on our own!

We had been dancing for many years without much style when we started private lessons. Julie stripped the dances back to basics and she transformed our dancing by listening, understanding limitations and finding solutions. She puts so much into her teaching it makes us push ourselves - all this is done with humour and grace! We regularly attend her social events which are friendly and welcoming - we can't recommend Dance Buckingham enough!"
