Our Ballroom courses run on Tuesday evenings 6.30pm for standard styles, 7.30pm solo styles and 8.30pm Latin styles and Friday evenings 7.30pm all styles.

This beginner course aims to introduce you to the Latin Ballroom Styles of the Jive, Cha Cha Cha, Samba and Rumba. Learn to sail and glide across the floor with grace and poise as well as how to use body isolations to add the Latin flavour to your dancing.  We will learn the basics of lead and follow in a closed position, which will utilize core and hip stability, as well as the basics of forward heel leads and backwards toe leads.  By the end of the course we hope you will garner the basics of poise and motion and gain a better appreciation of what you see in Dancing with the Stars!

Each class consists of a warm up and instruction on techniques and steps and turn patterns from Latin Ballroom styles. Come and learn from our professional ballroom dancer and instructor Claudio. No partner and no experience required!

When you select a class you wish to join, you will be asked to create a Viva Dance account if you are new to Viva Dance.
