Updated: Jul 5

Have you ever watched those glamorous ballroom dancers gliding across the floor and thought, “I’d love to try that!”? Well, you’re in luck! Whether you’re a complete beginner or looking to polish your moves, there are several ways to dive into the world of ballroom dancing. Let’s explore the delightful options offered at Move With Me Dance Studio:

Each offers its own unique benefits, so there’s something perfect for everyone.

1. Group Classes: Fun and Flexibility

If you’re looking for a taste of ballroom dancing without a long-term commitment, group classes are the way to go. These sessions, lasting around 45 minutes to an hour, are perfect for busy schedules. Each class focuses on two specific dance styles, giving you a focused and enjoyable learning experience.

Group classes are a fantastic way to meet new people and improve your dance skills in a friendly, relaxed environment. The shared energy of the group makes the experience lively and fun. Plus, group classes are easy on the wallet since the cost is shared among participants. They’re ideal if you want to see if ballroom dancing is your thing or if you’re looking to refine a particular move.



  • Flexible Commitment: Attend single sessions without a long-term commitment.

  • Social Atmosphere: Great for meeting new people and enjoying a lively class environment.

  • Affordable: Shared costs make it a budget-friendly option.

  • Focused Learning: Each class focuses on a specific style or technique.

  • Less Continuity: Since classes are individual sessions, there may be less progression over time.

  • Varied Skill Levels: The mix of beginners and more advanced dancers can be challenging for some.

  • Limited Individual Attention: Instructors manage the whole group, so personalized feedback is minimal.

2. Ballroom Dance Short Course: Your Ticket to a Dance Adventure

Imagine embarking on a 6 to 8-week journey where you and a group of dance enthusiasts come together to learn the graceful art of ballroom dancing. This isn’t just a class; it’s an experience. Each week, you’ll be guided through different dance styles and techniques, from the elegant Waltz to the romantic Rumba. The beauty of a short course is its structure and progression. You’ll start with the basics and build up your skills, gaining confidence and rhythm along the way.

The social aspect is a huge bonus. You’ll meet a wonderful mix of people, all sharing the same passion and curiosity. Whether you’re there with a partner or on your own, you’ll have the chance to dance with various classmates, creating a vibrant and supportive community. And let’s not forget the instructors, who bring their expertise and enthusiasm to every class. They’ll make sure you’re having fun while learning, making each session something to look forward to.



  • Structured Learning: A set curriculum that progressively builds your skills.

  • Social Interaction: Meet and dance with a variety of people.

  • Cost-Effective: Generally more affordable per lesson than private lessons.

  • Community Feel: Creates a supportive environment where everyone is learning together.

  • Comprehensive: Covers a range of dance styles and techniques over several weeks.

  • Fixed Schedule: Requires a commitment to attend regularly for several weeks.

  • Less Personalised Attention: Instructors are focused on the whole group, so individual feedback may be limited.

  • Group Dynamics: The pace of learning might be too fast or too slow depending on the group.

3. Private Lessons: Your Personalised Dance Journey

For those who crave a more personalized experience, private lessons are the ultimate choice. Imagine having an hour where it’s just you and a dedicated instructor, focusing on exactly what you want to learn. Whether you’re preparing for a wedding dance, looking to perfect your technique, or simply prefer a one-on-one learning environment, private lessons are tailored to your goals.

With the instructor’s full attention, you’ll receive detailed feedback and guidance, helping you progress quickly. This personalized approach is incredibly rewarding and can make a huge difference in your dancing skills. While it’s a bit more of an investment, the benefits are well worth it. You’ll feel your confidence soar as you master each step, and the satisfaction of seeing your improvement is unbeatable.



  • Personalized Instruction: Tailored to your specific goals and needs.

  • Flexible Scheduling: Can be arranged to fit your personal schedule.

  • Rapid Progress: One-on-one attention helps you improve quickly.

  • Focused Feedback: Detailed and specific guidance from the instructor.

  • Privacy: Ideal for those who may feel shy or self-conscious in group settings.

  • Higher Cost: More expensive compared to group classes or short courses.

  • Less Social Interaction: Limited to interaction with the instructor, lacking the social aspect of group settings.

  • Dependence on Instructor Availability: Scheduling can be challenging if the instructor has limited availability.

No matter which path you choose, ballroom dancing brings a myriad of benefits. It’s a fantastic way to stay active and fit without feeling like you’re working out.
