"Excellent Latin/Ballroom dance classes by an amazing accredited teacher: Adele Marsh, amazing ❤"
Dancing since May 2018
Adele is an amazing teacher. She manages to keep her classes very fun whilst learning you from the very basic steps up to intermediate level. The mixture of Latin and ballroom classes means that you can learn a variety of dances with the same teacher. She breaks down the steps and ensures that you are able to complete these before moving onto the next. I am always amazed at the way Adele teaches me the routines - you seem to learn a few steps and suddenly she'll put them together and make you feel like you're properly dancing in no time at all. The routines are brilliant and varied and because she builds on these each time, I am not just doing the same moves over and over again. She is always encouraging and engages the whole class. I love the way she tells me about the history of the dances and how she varies the music from traditional to modern. Every detail is explained from how the hands and feet should be placed to how it should feel and the weight it carry. Always excellent ❤
"Fantastic dance classes"
