What is In Motion Dance?
In Motion Dance teach an adaptable slotted partner dance that has its roots in many different styles but has the look of west coast swing without the hard footwork. It is very easy to learn and can be danced to a very wide variety of music, making it a popular partner dance.
Do I need a partner?
No. Many people come along on their own or with friends. During the classes, we change partners frequently so that you meet everyone and get to dance with people with different styles and amounts of experience.
What should I wear?
Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. You are likely to get warm so layers are a good idea. The most important thing is that you wear shoes that will turn and spin easily on a wooden floor and that are comfortable and secure on your feet.
Do I need to book in advance?
No. You can just turn up on your first night. It is best to arrive about 7.50pm so that you can get a drink and have time to settle in before the first class.
Do we have to stay all night?
You are free to come and leave at any time. If you are a beginner, it is very beneficial to stay for the beginner recap class which runs between the two classes and usually finished by 9.15pm
I can’t make it every week. Does it matter?
No. It is not a set course and we teach different moves each week which are repeated over time.
Do you need to be fit and healthy?
