Have you ever wanted to be able to say i can dance....and really mean it? January is the best time of year to start learning...and without beating around the bush....we are the best people to learn with. Top Teacher of the Year winners for 11 consecutive years.....if we cant teach you no one can! Put on a few pounds over Christmas? Dancing is also such a great way of getting in shape. Just have a look at dancers.....most of them look in pretty good shape and dancing makes you vibrant and dancers radiate an energy. No matter if you have danced before or if you an absolute beginner we have a class that is right for you. Our classes are fun and light hearted and you will go home laughing and feeling elated. Its also a great way of meeting new people ...you will find a whole new circle of friends and have more fun than you ever thought possible. If you have had a break and are thinking of starting back...January is the best time as we will be teaching new routines. Singles and couple all welcome. Our children's classes are amazing too.....not only great fun for them...but it teaches them discipline and etiquette and develops good posture...feel free to bring them along to class just to have a look and see what its all about. Our Zumba fitness classes with Amy and Katie are setting new levels not seen anywhere else. Go at your own pace and work as easy or as hard as you like...but one thing is for sure....we have never met anyone so enthusiastic and bubbly as Amy ...you'll be singing and laughing all the way home!
