Beginner (L1) classes will be structured in 4-week blocks to maximise learning, and to build on top of the material covered in earlier classes. It is highly recommended that you attend all of the classes. We cover a lot in each class, so you want to make sure you don’t skip many!
Registering for the entire course is not just a saving for you, but also helps us plan ahead – who is coming to the class, ratio of male/female for the course, and commitment level. We need to have a good ratio of guys and ladies, so that it can be fun for everyone. Register early to avoid missing out!
*Note: the course fee is paid at the start, and covers the entire 4 weeks. We apologise in advance that we won’t be able to process refunds.

A guide to our levels:
L1 (Beginner) – starting from scratch, learning bachata basic steps and timing, and gaining confidence with some fun moves
L2 (Improver) – for those comfortable with social Bachata dance and all of the basics covered in L1, progressing forward by adding sensual & cool moves, expanding your dance repertoire
At the start of each lesson, we will revise what we’ve learned in the previous class – so there’s still an opportunity to catchup, if you couldn’t attend. It’s a fun dance, so expect to have lots of fun learning it in class as well!
Partners are not necessary – we will rotate throughout the class. Just bring yourself and plenty of friendly attitude!
See you all there!
