Dance Instruction


Our classes are taught by renowned dance instructors who created many American Smooth Ballroom and Rhythm Latin dance champions over the years.  Whether you are an advanced level dancer or have never danced before, we can cater for your individual needs.

Whether you are preparing for your wedding, or just want to learn to hold your own on the dance floor at functions and parties, we provide private or group dance instruction at affordable rates.

We teach a Ballroom and Latin American dance syllabus that combines the best elements of International Latin dancing and Standard Ballroom dancing as well as Rhythm Latin dancing and American Smooth Ballroom dancing for a solid, flexible foundation to your dancing repertoire.

We also teach a variety of other specialized dances, such as Eastern & Western Swing, Boogie, Salsa, Sokkie, Jazz and Loop dance.

And because dancing is not just for strong athletes, at Phoenix Dance Company, we have huge success in helping people with health concerns such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Psoriatic Arthritis and Crohn’s Disease create a more healthy active life style, whilst creating strong dancers above all odds.

The benefits of dancing also reach far beyond mere physical activity, enhancing cognitive development and improving mental health and self-esteem. The freedom of expression afforded by dancing dramatically improves all aspects of life.
