Disco and Rock ‘n’ Roll teaches co-ordination, spatial awareness, creativity and gives you rhythm and timing. It can be danced solo, in pairs and trios and also in a Formation Team. You can learn set choreography for competitions and you are also encouraged to improvise and create your own choreography.
Rock ‘n’ Roll can be danced in couples or groups. It is high energy and has an acrobatic element to it. The most obvious feature this dance is its kicks and its lifts, jumps, throws and flips. It’s exciting and great fun, but get ready to put your fitness to the test as this is a physically demanding style of dance!
No! You can come along to a Disco and Rock ‘n’ Roll class without a partner. There is plenty of solo work and you can also be paired up if you want.
Wear something you feel comfortable in. We advise wearing dance workout clothing, such as leggings/tracksuits and T-shirts. As long as it is loose fitting and you are able to move freely.
We advise wearing jazz shoes or dance sneakers (or something similar). A certain amount of grip is needed and also support around your foot and ankles.
A certain amount of fitness and agility is required for this form of dance, but please remember that you can gain this through starting this type of dance! It’s a great way to get fit, tone up and socialise!
