The ever popular social Ballroom and Latin American dance classes run by the Cork Dance Club will this autumn transfer from the Blarney Woollen Mills Hotel to Brian Dillons H & F Club Mayfield. “We’re very excited about the move, as are our students, as the GAA club has become a popular hub for ballroom dancing in the last few months, with social dances now taking place there ever,” says tutors Betty and Eddie. Cork Dance Club offers a variety of group dance classes for all levels in a relaxed and social atmosphere. “Our aim is to ensure that you have lots of fun while learning a new skill and getting some exercise into the bargain,” adds Eddie. Everyone has the potential to be a dancer with the proper instruction and confidence. Learning to dance is no difference from learning any other discipline, it may feel awkward at first, that’s to be expected. Eventually you will master the basics and will be able to dance with full enjoyment without having to think about it and you will be able to just feel it and dance. The good news is learning to dance is always fun, even at the early stages. Dance lessons are normally given in succession with you learning step by step and building on what you have already learned. By learning in a step by step fashion and practising in between your lessons you will develop a muscle memory and eventually your dance steps and routines and effortless movement to the music will become like second nature to you. Cork Dance Club’s lessons encompass many different dances styles including, waltz, jive, quickstep, tango, cha cha cha, foxtrot, samba, rumba and lots more. Whether you want to dance at your wedding, debs/grads or just because you’re looking for a new hobby this autumn, you will find that learning how to ballroom dance will give you the confidence to do any of the above anywhere. “Here a Cork Dance Club we like to get to know all our students and regularly hold social events such as week-end dances, a Valentine’s Ball, week-ends away, dance holidays and Christmas parties where you can come and meet new people and show off your dance skills “Our speciality is adult lessons, so if you’re between the ages of 18 and 88 years old, you are welcome to explore the world of dance with us at Cork Dance Club. If you think your age has anything to do with your ability to dance, you’re wrong, we believe it’s never too early or late to fall in love with dance,” concluded instructor Anne Hurley. Cork Dance Club’s new beginners’ classes commence on Tuesday September 10th in Brian Dillons H & F Club Mayfield at 7.15pm and Bandon Rugby Club on Monday September 16th at 7pm.
