This Class is designed for dancers who are excellent in their fundamentals and pushing well into intermediate up to Advanced level. This is designed to develop and push your current dance level. If you are not too far into intermediate level you may still join. There are no dance partners to contend with so this will not affect anyone accept yourself so why not come have some fun and give it a try.

Grading & Enrolment Not Required

Typically, progression from the Beginners level to this stage occurs after successfully completing a grading. As a result, enrollment is automatic and not necessary. Nonetheless, if you are new to our classes and are visiting Christchurch, and would like to experience a casual class, or if you already have experience in this dance style, you have the option to register - enrol here >

Gradings are not required, but recommended for these classes. Since these classes are not partner dancing but footowork only,  it won't affect anyone else in this class. However we highly recommend you have completed a beginner course and well into the imp-int level.
