We normally run three 6-week beginners course a year, starting in January, after Easter and in September.  These course are taught by the QTL team and are open to all.

The beginners courses are aimed at complete beginners who may have never danced before and those who have experience of only one role.  We cover the basics of the embrace, partnered walking and simple steps such as ochos and giros.

We encourage all beginners to learn by practicing both leading and following as this leads to a more rounded experience.  Some people enjoy both roles, others may have a preference for one over another but until you've tried both you have no way of knowing!

Check our FAQs for some common questions we receive from beginners.
