The Majestic Dance Club takes bookings and payments for classes and private lessons in advance by bank transfer. Payments cannot be made on the door, nor can payment be in cash. The classes are charged at £25.00 per person for each four week set, however, this is a discounted price, the standard single lessons cost is £8.00 per person. Private lessons are charges at £27.00 per lesson. Invoices are emailed to clients and have be paid in advance of any class or lesson.
It is not necessary to start the beginners dance class as part of a couple, as a percentage of the dance class usually start the course unaccompanied, however, once the course has been running for a few weeks and for all other dance classes including private lessons you will be required to be with a dance partner.
Most dancers wear comfortable casual clothes. It helps if footwear is soft enough to be able to bend the foot at the toe joint, although slippery soles, high thin heels or sling backs should be avoided.
The first part of the evening is for dance instruction, followed by a Social Practice Dance. The instructors will be on hand to help out and soft drinks will be on sale throughout the evening. To comply with covid regulations we are not permited to run any social dance at this time.
All our ballroom and latin american dance classes are held in the evening, thus all dancers must be adults over 18. However, all age groups are well represented, from young adults to the mature young at heart. We have rockers from 18 to 80!
Personal dance tuition can be arranged, subject to availability. Private dance lessons can be arranged for couples on Sunday morning or early afternoon and it is normal practice for two instructors to be teaching in the ballroom at the same time. Please email us including a contact telephone number with the most suitable time for you and a dance instructor will call you as soon as possible. Contact details can be found under About Us.
The ballroom dances we teach include: Waltz, Tango, Slow Foxtrot, Quickstep, and Viennese Waltz. The latin american dances we teach include: Rumba, Samba, Cha Cha Cha, ballroom jive, and Paso Doble. We also teach Classical Sequence (old time) - many of these are popular at social dances.
Yes you can start any day we are running the beginners social dance class, however, you will need to make a booking because we are not permited casual visitors so please don't just turn up.
