2016 Masterclasses


These are classes with a maximum capacity of people in fixed couples (with the exception of Ladies styling) and have been put in place for those people really hoping to master the arts of the dances and styles billed.

As there is a maximum capacity these are workshops rather than classes which will offer interaction with the teachers and the opportunity for direct feedback and are pre-bookable at the Weather Centre in the Main Complex at a charge of £5 per head upon arrival on-site.
