Ballroom & Latin Dancing Lessons at Kelly's Dance Studio
Modern Ballroom & Latin
For some real fun and a great evening out at Kelly’s why not dance the night away with the Waltz, Quickstep, Tango and Foxtrot – as well as Latin dances – Cha Cha Cha, Salsa, Jive and Rumba!
Enjoy a fun night out dancing to some great music in a relaxed atmosphere with your friends, and of course the new friends you’ll undoubtedly be making when you join us!
If you can already dance, our timetable has a wide range of dance classes throughout the week to suit your requirements.
Beginners to Ballroom dancing will need to enrol on our 12 week ‘Absolute Beginners’ Ballroom and Latin Course for adults. This will provide the foundation required for Ballroom dancing, from which you can choose to expand upon if desired.
There is no prerequisite for this course. If you’ve never even danced before – this is for you!

The world reknown Waltz captures romance and marks special occasions for dancers everywhere. Originally an 18th century Austrian folk-dance, the Waltz is one of the five dances of International Ballroom competitions. The dance is called the ‘slow’ or ‘English’ Waltz in countries where the Viennese Waltz is known as the Waltz.
The first dancers to take the Foxtrot to a faster tempo introduced the Quickstep. There are echoes of Charleston in the Quickstep with the dance’s nimble hops and kicks, making it a lively and energetic expedition to the dancefloor. The Quickstep is one of the five international ballroom competition dances.
The Ballroom Tango is one of the five dances belonging to the International Ballroom Competitions. Many see it as the austere European relative of the raw and compelling Argentine Tango.
Foxtrot is a slow and graceful dance rooted in the Tin Pan Ally of the 1920s. The dance’s elegant and beautiful movements make the Foxtrot a challenging dance for ballroom dancers to master. The Foxtrot features in the five International Ballroom competition dances.
CHA CHA CHA
The Cha Cha Cha is a fun and versatile Latin dance and ranks amongst the five dances competed at international level. The dance draws its name from the rhythm of the feet on the dancefloor – ‘cha cha cha’ – and today’s version resembles the original Cuban Cha Cha.
The Rumba provides the setting for sensual and passionate duel between man and woman on the dancefloor. With its pulsating and rumbling rhythms, the Rumba is the slow dance of the Latin world and often referred to as the ‘Queen’ of all Latin dances. The Rumba is one of the five dances used in International competition style Latin American.
The Samba leapt from the street of Rio, Brazil. However, the Samba danced in the International competition style Latin American is very different to the original Bralizian party dance.
The Jive originated from the United States back in the 1940’s and is is one of the five International Latin ballroom dances.
