We realise that life gets in the way sometimes and you cannot always attend regular classes, but if you looking to return, don't be worried!  You'll  always have a warm welcome and depending on the amount of time you have taken off, we would normally suggest that you return to the class below so that you can recap the technique at a slower pace, and then move up when you are back up to speed.

If you want to return, but unsure where, here's the format and a brief description:

Level 1        Beginners with Josephine on Tuesdays and Charles on Wednesdays
                    Currently on 6 of a 9 week course ending 28 Feb.
                    If you have completed a beginners course within the last year,
                    please join any week in February to recap the fundamentals £9 each
Level 2        Recent Beginners with Claire
                    Recapping the cross, forward & backward ochos & other simple but
                    interesting moves
Level 3        Improvers with Debbie & Gill alternating weekly -
                   Lovely moves, taken at a slow pace
Level 4        Intermediates:  on Tuesdays with Tracie & Min
                                            on Wednesdays with Tracie & Joe
                    Challenging moves!

The format for our wonderful weekly Tuesday & Wednesday classes is really working well and we are seeing more and more people climb the levels.  So thank you all for attending and practicing hard
