Lessons and Classes

​In our lessons my goal is primarily to help you learn to dance, but also to make sure you have fun in a pressure-free, judgement-free environment. Whether you’re looking to learn on your own, or are interested in joining with others, please explore the options below.

Fitsteps - Online or in-studio

Tuesdays and Thursdays

This is a brilliant option to keep active through dance with the option of Zoom or in-studio. Live classes normally take place on Tuesday evenings in Winslow Public Hall at 8.30 pm, or Thursdays in Buckingham Youth Centre at 1.00 pm (next to Swan Leisure).  We have just finished our current live classes and will re-start on 31st August.

However, over the summer months, we're offering Fitsteps at home via Zoom.   You can join us for a "live" breakfast class on Thursdays at 9.00 am or buy a weekly ticket and you'll be sent a recorded session that you can access at a time to suit you and as many times as you like. This is a one-off summer promotion starting 22 July.


Fitsteps is an energetic, upbeat dance fitness class featuring all your favourite dances from Strictly.  It is designed to give real, measurable fitness results.  It is suitable for all abilities and ages and you don’t need a partner.  You’ll have so much fun you won’t even realise you’re getting fit. This is a great option if you want to dance from the comfort of your home or come to the studio.

Wedding Dance Choreography 

Village Hall, Main Road, Shutlanger NN12 7RU

The first dance at your wedding is an important part of your day and we are always happy to help you put one foot in front of the other with confidence.  An experienced IDTA qualified instructor in ballroom and latin dance will help you put moves to the song of your choice, advising you on what type of dance would suit your music.  We take into account the style of the dress (not discussed in front of the groom of course); the size of the room and the type of people you are - so that you end up with a dance that really suits you.  Most of our couples come with some trepidation and leave having thoroughly enjoyed the process.  In fact, many end up coming to classes in Buckingham after the wedding to continue the experience.

Private Lessons 

Village Hall, Main Road, Shutlanger NN12 7RU

A great way to improve an aspect of your dancing, build confidence and learn directly from your IDTA qualified instructor.  And, perhaps more importantly in these times - it's the perfect way to start dancing again.


Your instructor will remain socially distanced and we'll be following all COVID secure guidelines including plenty of ventilation and sanitisation - but good to be dancing again!  

We are delighted to announce that we can offer student/teacher partnering once again if you are able to provide a rapid/lateral flow negative test result taken within 48 hours of your lesson.

Group classes - restarting w/c 30th August

Youth Centre, London Road, Buckingham MK18 1AS

UPDATE:

We are running Practice Nights 7.00 - 9.00 pm every other Wednesday night starting 28 July since the easing of restrictions.  We will still keep numbers under control and encourage dancers to be mindful of social distancing, but you'll be able to move around the ballroom again.  There will be some teaching of basic ballroom figures each week but it's a really an opportunity for you to get used to dancing in a small group situation.  Ventilation and sanitisation measures will still apply.  Pre-booking applies here, just click the Book Now button below and choose Practice Night.

GROUP CLASSES:

These re-start on Wednesday 1 September.  No matter your skill level or experience you’ll gain a lot from our group classes.  You’ll learn one ballroom and one latin dance for the duration of the term, giving you ample time to get to grips with the choreography.  Each class includes theoretical and practical instruction along with plenty of time to put your new knowledge into action.

Our classes will continue to follow COVID-19 secure guidelines please click on the COVID -19 tab for updated information.
