Absolute Beginners' Classes for Adults
Our popular Absolute Beginners' Class covers all kinds of dances from Rumba to Tango, Foxtrot to Jive. A new course starts every term and you don't need a partner - just reserve your place and dance the night away!

Beginners dance courses start in September and January. Please enquire for current days and times.

Second Stage and Improvers Ballroom and Latin Classes for Adults
Once our students have been dancing for about a year, they are then invited to join the "Second Stage" class where we focus on slightly more challenging steps and study the technique in more detail. This class is also open to those who have danced before and may not need to start at beginner level.

Our Ballroom and Latin Improvers class caters for more experienced dancers who have a good understanding of technique and wish to learn interesting variations as well as working on posture, poise and movement. Some of our Improvers work towards medal tests and competitions whilst others simply enjoy the social opportunities regular dancing brings.

Adult Ballet Classes
Popular with women of all ages, our Saturday Ballet class is ideal for anyone wishing to improve their poise and posture, tone up and gain flexibility in a fun and expressive way.
Some come to the class as beginners (although we also have a few ex-professional dancers in the group!) but regardless of experience all enjoy the traditional format of Barre and Centre, set to a mixture of classical and modern music.

“Alex is very encouraging when explaining steps, will repeat steps with you very patiently until you feel able to remember. I can say I have thoroughly enjoyed this class and recommend it to all!!”


Lewes Goes Strictly!
Hosted by TRINITY Church, Lewes Goes Strictly is a fun and friendly dance class which aims to be inclusive and affordable for all. The evening starts with an opportunity to socialise over complimentary refreshments, followed by the main class and afterwards there is time to practice the steps you've learned.
Courses normally run for 6 weeks every January and April. You don't need a partner.
