Workshops

It’s All In The Eyes: Instructor Steve Lafferty & Sandra Pace

This workshop is for any dancer, at any level, who sometimes feels off balance when they dance, especially when turning and spinning.
If you get caught off-guard by what your partner is doing or find your feet can’t keep up with your movements, you will love this workshop. It will help every moment of every dance.
The bi-product is that you will learn how to look after yourself at home. You will reduce your risk of falls and will be less clumsy to boot!
What’s the secret? Come along to find out. All I will say is that “It’s all in the eyes”

The Winning Edge: Instructor Steve Lafferty & Sandra Pace

Get the Winning Edge and  set your partnership up for the rest of the competition year. Take your competitive aspirations to the next level – whatever that may be.
This is a workshop that is designed for competition partnerships, but, feel free to grab a friend and bring them as your workshop partner. With so many categories in competitions these days, it’s important to be able to bring the Winning Edge to any partnership.
We will be focusing on the key areas that judges are looking for and we will work with each couple to build on each area.
This is an interactive and organic workshop which will flow with the needs of the class. There will be something for everyone!
Give yourself an edge!

Why We Love Modern Jive: Instructors Gav Brady & Hazel Barrer

We’ve both danced other styles, including hip hop, zouk, salsa, jazz ballet, ballroom and west coast swing – but it’s Modern Jive that we love. Come along and find out why Modern Jive is our favourite (and how you can complement your MJ with other dance styles).

PMT Is Not Just For Ladies: Instructors Gav Brady & Hazel Barrer

Body Leads & Body Shaping: Instructors Andrew Boddis & Toni Rendell
