It`s natural to feel a bit scared of something unknown, and a few nervous jitters are common among first time students, but know that any anxiety will pass very quickly! There's nothing to be afraid of and before you know it you'll be feeling confident, fit and full of energy.

At Crows Nest Dance Centre we create a fun atmosphere for you to learn to dance. We make it easy because we focus on what's important - having fun! Our range of classes caters for those who have never stepped foot on a dance floor as well as the more confident dancers. You don't need to have any previous experience or a partner. We rotate in the dance classes so no partner is required.

We understand that starting a new hobby like dancing which requires mind and body coordination can be a bit disconcerting. But you see, we don't worry about whether or not you get the steps straight away because we know that you'll get them eventually... The steps are not what's important. We don't lose sight of the enjoyment that dancing should bring. Fun is our top priority. If you don't have an enjoyable experience in our dance classes then we haven't done our job. By the end of the class we want to inspire you with the infectious joy of dancing.

BACHATA

Bachata originated from the Dominican Republic. This dance is a four-step beat achieved with a walking Cuban hip motion, and a unique “pop”. It is performed both in open position and in closed position depending on the setting and mood of the partners. Bachata has become more and more popular over the years and has grown into many different styles across the world. Crows Nest Dance Centre's expert Bachata instructor Alberto Perez will make you feel right at home updating you with all the latest moves and rhythms and most importantly make sure you do all this whilst having a great time! Don't worry if you don`t have a partner either because we change partners regularly throughout class.
