Introduction to Dancing Feet

I have learnt so much and progressed really well with the help of a committed and experienced dance teacher (Mark) and I have been lucky to find a fantastic dance partner as well.

Joanna Martin, Bronze Class

Mark has taught us from the beginning to where we are now, working towards our gold medal. His consistency in terms of premiere teaching standards and patient persistence is commendable.

Frank & Judith Wrentmore, currently in the Gold Class

Dancing feet is a very inclusive class where you get straight into the dancing and quickly feel like you're getting somewhere.
