Online Classes & Donations
Let’s keep dancing together virtually whilst we’re prevented from gathering for our normal classes!
No partner required.
Apart from getting your dancing fix, it’s good to keep active and inspired so we can be fit & healthy to fight the virus if we get it. We can also take the opportunity to work on certain aspects of our dancing so that when we can all resume, we’ll be better than ever!
To begin, we will be providing video classes at 2 levels: Improvers (Level 2-3) and Intermediate-Advanced (Level 4-5).
The videos are recorded in HD so should be high quality if viewed on a big screen TV. Huge thanks to Elaine Greenwood & Rob Havill for helping us to make these videos.
Classes for beginners will be coming soon, and will be suitable for including children too.
Each level will have several videos focussing on different areas. The content will have a different emphasis than usual classes, as many of you may not have a partner to work with whilst watching.
To watch the videos you will need to take out a weekly subscription of £8 (£5 concessions), which is payable every Thursday. However, your initial order will need to be placed on or before a Wednesday in order for the system to process payments on the Thursday. Once your payment has been processed, you will be provided with an access link to the relevant collection of videos, which will be released every Friday.
Within the week you can watch the videos as many times as you want, so you can get plenty of practice!
Each week on a Friday the videos will change, and if you are continuing to subscribe you will receive a new access code to view the new classes.
You may cancel at any time via the website or by stopping your payments and sending us an email. However there are no refunds or part week payments. You will continue to have access until the next change of videos.
PLEASE NOTE: Subscriptions will take effect from the first Friday after taking out the subscription, assuming you placed the order on or before a Wednesday.
Some of you have extremely generously offered to make donations to help support us whilst we are closed – thank you so much!
If you have already donated, we obviously wouldn’t expect you to pay to access the videos in addition, so we will be in contact to arrange for you to have access as appropriate.
Going forward, we would prefer that you keep dancing if possible, and get something in return for supporting us, so please give your support by subscribing to the online videos. If you really wish to contribute more, one way would be to spread the word about the videos, especially once we have got the beginners course recorded.
Couples or those wishing to donate more:
There is no obligation to do so, but if you are a couple and would normally have each paid to attend classes, you have the option of supporting us by both taking out a subscription. Alternatively, anyone can pay for a subscription by BACS and set up a standing order for a larger amount than the cost of the subscription. We are extremely grateful for your support, financially or otherwise.
