All dance classes are active and therefore you must bring to the attention of the tutor any physical or health-related impairment that may affect your safety.

For all courses involving physical activity, you must arrive by the published course commencement time or the tutor may refuse to admit you into the session. The agenda for many courses involving physical activity starts with an OH&S briefing and/or a warm-up and to miss either may create a hazard to you, which might exclude you from participation for the session.

Course testimonials:

  • said: It was fun, Angus and Fiona are very knowledgeable. They are very patient in teaching us newbies. Looking forward to return for more!!

  • said: We had a great time learning to dance. Everyone was friendly. Fiona and Angus make it easy to follow. We will come back in the new year. Thank you!

  • said: They were excellent teachers and the 6 weeks went past far too quickly. The next course seems such a long way away; it is a shame the course isn't longer or offered more frequently to add to the continuing dimension. I am an old dancer in every sense of the word but was pleased the course catered for people who had just started as well as old timers like me. More social dancing please!
