The Practical Stuff

How many lessons will I need?
That really depends on you! Read More

What style of dance do we learn?
You can choose from 20s Charleston, 40s Lindy Hop or 50s RnR.  If you would like to learn a routine to a specific song, send Simon a clip of the music and let him help you decide on a suitable style!

Is a private lesson good for our Wedding First Dance?
Yes!! This will absolutely help you WOW the crowd with your first dance so you don't end up swaying back & forth on the dance floor for 3 minutes!

What if I/We have two left feet?

What people say…

Neither of us have had a one to one lesson before and it was really incredibly insightful and helpful. Simons teaching style is one of encouragement bringing out our strengths and individuality whilst working on our weaknesses to improve our overall dance style and technique.
