When I started Simply Dancing Partners eleven years ago I never imagined where it would take me. My original intention was to find a way to learn to dance Ballroom myself. I tried several classes and found that the promise of plenty of partners was empty. I had two choices - give up my dream of dancing or invent something new.
I started a completely revolutionary concept - dance classes where everyone was guaranteed to dance with an experienced professional partner. My team is made up of teachers and amateur competitors who are all highly skilled dancers and who love to help my clients to learn. They are charming and patient and it is a delight to watch the wide range of ages of clients and partners enjoying a shared passion for dance.
We run regular Group classes in the evenings based in our studio very close to Marble Arch. Clients start as beginners and progress each year adding more figures and technique. There is plenty of opportunity to dance with the partners who lead expertly and make the experience unique. Every client dances throughout the lesson and receives instruction both from the teacher and their partner so that the atmosphere resembles a workshop. We now include all the Ballroom and Latin styles as well as Salsa and Argentine Tango.
This concept also works brilliantly for Men who want to learn to dance and for Couples who prefer to learn as a pair.
Many clients are now taking additional Private Lessons with the teachers and dancing has become their preferred form of exercise. Private Lessons can be taken at any time of the day or evening and at weekends to suit clients' availability and we have several studio options in Central London and in the suburbs.
On Friday mornings we run a Dance Exercise class without partners that starts with stretching and isolation exercises and then concentrates on a particular Latin dance style such as Cha Cha or Rumba so that we learn the individual steps in considerable detail and concentrates on the posture, arm movements and footwork. This class is very popular.
Clients who want to attend socials or events can engage a partner to accompany them so that they are guaranteed to dance as many times as they want. It means that our clients are the ones really enjoying the social rather than those who are sitting on the side hoping that they will eventually be noticed.
