The Canberra School of Dancing offers dance tuition in the Latin, Ballroom and New Vogue dance styles for children from the age of 6 years right through to the more mature-aged adult. The school caters for those wanting to dance either socially or competitively and offers a variety of group classes (children, adult and over 50’s), private lessons and customised sessions for corporate or school groups.
Dance is a great way to improve your fitness, meet new people, have fun and learn a fantastic sport. If you want to put more into life, why not come and give it a go!
Latin is not only for the young but also for the young at heart. The dances contain plenty of hip action, flair and playful movements that combined with the rhythms make the dances entertaining and enjoyable. The dances we teach are Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba, Paso Doble and Jive. On request or in our special group classes we also offer Rock 'n' Roll, Salsa, Merengue and Mambo.
New Vogue is sequence-based dancing that originated in Australia. The dances feature similar characteristics to the ballroom styles (Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango and March) but comprise a standard sequence of steps that are repeated. More recently, a number of the New Vogue dances are being performed in a more relaxed fashion to modern music.
Ballroom is elegant, graceful and passionate but can also require energy and stamina. We teach the five main dancers - Waltz, Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Tango and Quickstep as well as the Slow Rhythm.
