Forget the gym!

By | Social Dancing, Studio News | No Comments

Alarmingly, over 63% of people say going to the gym is boring!

O.K, so we made that statistic up, but you have to admit there is nothing like Ballroom and Latin Dancing to not only get you physically fit but mentally healthy too!

Do you want to get fit, look great, make new friends and have a ball doing it?

Then dancing is your answer!

The gym, whilst grueling and of course worth the work-out, doesn’t come close to the fun of dancing.

Especially if you’ve never danced before!

In fact, I am envious of people who are learning to dance. So many good memories turning up to the studio attempting to put one foot infront of the other.

All whilst trying to impress my “then dance partner” who turned “into my wife.” (no promises of partners-to-be!)

Ahh, great memories.

But now, it’s your turn! 

That’s what we want you to have. Of course the biggest challenge is going and getting over the “I’m not a dancer” or “I can’t dance” blah, blah, blah rubbish.

Of course you can’t dance, if you have never learned! 

That is why we have our on demand, pay as you go dancing, designed to MAKE you a dancer and of course look good and get fit doing it.

For information for Absolute Beginner classes up to Advanced classes, check it out here and now…

We teach waltz, quickstep, slow rhythm, cha cha, jive and rumba plus some bonus dances!

We look forward to seeing you and remember to share this page with your friends and join us on Facebook. 

Other customers have found buying 8 classes for the price of 7 is the easiest way to pay and dance more.

Make sure you share the love and bring your friends.

Brand New Medal Test Class

By | Social Dancing, Studio News | No Comments

Perfect for all social dancers who want to take the next step and challenge themselves.

Medal tests are a fun way to put your dance skills to the test. Our qualified examiners will help you improve your technique, timing, and overall dancing by overseeing your Medal grade.

It’s very easy to do, all you need is a bit of support from our teachers and other students and mix in a bit of practice along with our weekly Wednesday Medal Class…

Which starts September 4th at 7pm.

No partner or previous dance skill is needed just a great attitude and we’ll take care of the rest!

The studio has a 33 year legacy and has had over 6,000 medal tests, certainly a huge amount for an Australian studio.

You will develop more confidence, better skills and be proud of your achievement.

And yes, it is a bit scary at first but that only affects other people – not you, as you are a winner.

The Medal Test is held on Sunday 17th November at the Italo-Australian Club

For more information please call (02) 6162 0006 to chat about how it works further.
