Ballroom Dancing Lessons

If you live in Cardiff or the Vale of Gamorgan and are considering dance lessons then why not contact us join us at Pontyclun on Tuesdays or St.Athan on Thursdays.

Last night we were at Pontyclun again after our recent away dance trip to Aberavon.

Two nights and three days of great fun with the Strictly Dance people who meet at Wenvoe on Tuesday afternoons and Saturday evenings.

Opposite you can see a clip of some of us dancing at the 1920's Ball on the Friday evening.

Back to those lessons and we have been practising Waltz, Slow Foxtrot and our new Quickstep.

Can't wait to see those new steps in progress.

Ballroom & Sequence Dancing Away Trip

Well Ballroom and Sequence dancing moved from Cardiff and the Vale to Swansea last weekend - Dance Steps Llantwit are back in town after a fantastic weekend dancing with all our friends at the Aberavon Hotel in Swansea Bay.

This event was organised by Alan and Ian of Strictly Dance Cardiff, who are based at Wenvoe Cardiff. They run dances every Tuesday afternoon and usually every Saturday evening.

We all arrived Friday afternoon and had a 1920's Ball in the evening. On Saturday there was a morning dance and a black tie in the evening. Look at the pictures and see the joy in the room!

There was a farewell dance for those up for it on Sunday morning.

It was a real good mix of Modern Ballroom and Sequence Dancing for all abilities and ages. There were people from Cardiff, Barry, St.Athan and even one or two friends from Sheffield.

If you are looking to learn Ballroom or Sequence Dancing either in the Cardiff, Pontyclun, or St.Athan areas then please look at our dance lessons timetable. You are most welcome and soon you could be joining in the fun. Just remember, anyone can dance with a little tuition!

If you can already dance a few steps and wish to make new friends then go along to Wenvoe and meet the Strictly Cardiff group. They are all very friendly and it's brilliant fun.

Jive, Rumba and Quickstep

It was a fabulous dance lesson on Tuesday evening at the Pontyclun Institute and Athletic Club with another good attendance.

We continued to develop our Rumba which is coming together nicely. Some tricky new steps in there but practice makes perfect.

The Quickstep takes some getting used to! but when it works it's fantastic and everyone is flying. Well done everybody.

Adding to our repertoire we are now developing the Jive and it is really great fun. It's a dance you can do anywhere.

See you all next week.
