HORSHAM DANCERS CLUB

Welcome to Horsham Dancers Club 

Welcome to Horsham Dancers Club. We're delighted that you've found us!  Based on the current government announcements we are very excited to be dancing again. Whilst we will be delighted to welcome back more of our dancers, we will be taking a cautious approach in order to provide a safe environment for all and many of our guidelines will either remain in place or will gradually be eased over time.

 

Currently available:

  • Ballroom/Latin ADULT COURSES Level 1 Basics & Level 2 Refresher every Tuesday, renewing every 4-8 weeks.
  • Ballroom/Latin ADULT Drop In Classes, Thursday evenings. 
  • Ballroom/Latin Practice Sequence Dancing alternate Tuesday evenings and selected Sundays.
  • Ballroom/Latin Variations Class - every Friday evening.
  • Dance Solo sessions every Wednesday & Friday.
  • Personal Tuition, available every weekday and some weekends.
  • COFFEE MORNING DANCE, 1st Wednesday every month & AFTERNOON TEA DANCE on selected Sundays

Coming Soon:

  • Children's Classes, Saturday mornings & Under 18's Class, Tuesday/Thursday evenings

Competitions - in view of the ever changing situation, we hope to recommence our competition days in 2022 or earlier if possible. Following the sad loss of the Drill Hall to the community, we are currently seeking a new venue for our next date in 2022.

All sessions cover a mixture of Ballroom & Latin American styles, covering 2 or 3 dances each week. There is an instructor and assistant on hand to give you guidance, though at the moment we are not partnering dancers. Those that come with a partner can stay with their partner all night - we don't force couples to swap partners. If you don't have a partner that's not a problem.  Although we can't always guarantee even numbers, we'll do our best to make sure you get plenty of dances.
