Beginners Classes – Mondays
Las Estrellas is now closed for the Christmas period.
Absolute Beginners classes are on Mondays: the doors open at 7.15pm for enrolment, and the Class starts at 7.30 and ends at 9.30pm. You do not have to have a partner, you are very welcome to come on your own.
It is preferred that you take your first classes on four consecutive Mondays so that you do not forget any of the steps, but if necessary they can be spread out over a longer period. Once you have mastered the basics you can move onto our mixed class on Tuesdays, where you can develop your technique and learn more advanced steps.
Please wear comfortable clothing you can dance in, and most importantly: shoes that do not have rubber or synthetic soles – or you will stick to the dance floor. So come with leather soled shoes, and women will need high heels as well. If you are wearing rubber or synthetic soled shoes please remove them and dance without them: our floor is spotlessly clean.
Class: 7:30 – 9:30pm – Fee: £10
