Surrey Dance School Workshop – Strictly Ballroom & Latin Dancing

Surrey Dance School held their first Children’s Dance workshop on Friday 30th September at St Peter’s Hall.

We welcomed Jemma Girling, a professional ballroom and Latin teacher, choreographer and dancer who joined us for an evening, to teach a Waltz and a Cha cha to a full class of excited Strictly fans!

After warming up, we had lots of fun learning the basics of a waltz and I was extremely impressed with the concentration from all the children.

We then moved onto learning a Cha cha and practised putting arms and leg choreography together, as well as moving around the room! We packed a lot into an hour long dance class.

We are really excited that Jemma will be joining us again next month for a second ballroom and Latin dancing workshop, where we will learn some new moves, including a jive and the quickstep! What a great opportunity for our dancers to try something new and experience what it is like to learn like a ‘Strictly’ star! The next workshop will be held at St Peter’s Hall,Limpsfield,Oxted from 5-6pm on Friday 21st October.

Thank you to all who attended and made it such a fun dance workshop!
