Busy start to 2016

Our dancers have enjoyed a very busy start to the year including two Ballroom and Latin competitions, a Street dance competition, Medal presentation evening with professional dance demonstration, trip to  Blackpool Tower Ballroom and most recently the ‘Top Hat’ performance at the Opera House which was amazing. We are very proud of all our dancers who have worked hard to improve their dancing and who get involved with our events. You can see pictures of all of these events and more on the dance school instagram page.

Beginners

If you’ve never danced before or you have just started to learn make 2016 the year you discover the wonderful and rewarding experience of dancing. There’s no better way to stay fit and healthy without feeling like you’ve exercised at all!  We have adult beginners classes running on both Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Check out our website www.kirkhamdance.com for more information.

new class adult
The ‘beginners’ class of October 2015. In 10 weeks these pupils have learnt to Jive, Waltz, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba and Quickstep. Very well done to you all. We are looking forward to taking your dancing to the next level in 2016!

Improvers

If you have some experience of dancing make 2016 the year you take your dancing to the next level. This might be for example, having some private lessons to get to grips with the Foxtrot, taking a medal test for the first time or entering a dance competition! What ever your dancing goals might be we are here to help you achieve them. Estelle, Elisabeth, Michael or Jonathan will be pleased to have a chat and discuss your requirements.  Our teacher team is committed to help you make your dancing experience as good as it can be. Our adult intermediate level class is held on a Wednesday evening. For adults who wish to compete then special workshops and private coaching sessions are available.

Sequence Dance

For those of you who enjoy Sequence dancing then we have a class which focuses solely on learning sequence dances on a Thursday Evening. Learning popular sequence dances is very useful as you are exposed to all the rhythms of the Ballroom and Latin dances and many social events are often a 50/50 mix of Ballroom / Latin and Sequences dances.

Social Dances

Looking ahead, we will be hosting many more social events (including trips to the world famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom), and more regular Saturday night social dances for Ballroom & Latin and Sequence dancing. These social dances really help develop your dancing and confidence and are a great opportunity to get to know your fellow pupils better. Check out our events page on our web site http://www.kirkhamdance.com for dates and times.

Please support Emilys cake sale this Saturday the 10th October in aid of Macmillan Cancer Care. Lots of yummy cakes will be on sale from 10am at Kirkham Community Centre. Please pop in and support this good cause.

Adult Social Dance This Saturday

Get of the couch and away from the goggle box and enjoy an evening of dancing and socialising with fellow pupils this Saturday the 12th September. Practice your Ballroom and Latin dances on our large dance floor at Kirkham Community Centre. This is an ideal opportunity for our adult competitors to practice their routines prior to the UKA Winter Gardens competition in October. There will also be some sequence dances for those who enjoy this style. Dancing starts at 8:30pm and please feel free to bring your own nibbles and drinks to enjoy between dances. Dress code is relaxed and casual.

PS. Please tell all your friends about our new adult beginner class due to start in October. A great opportunity to learn to dance Ballroom and Latin. So, come on Mums and Dads, enjoy doing something together and give it a go as I am sure you will find that learning to dance is far better than just watching celebrities do it on TV!
