Ballroom (Beginners)

Please note that we do our best to keep this calendar up-to-date but with so much going on at Claremont, we occasionally drop the ball. It’s unlikely for example that we’ll be quick enough to change the timetable if a tutor cancels at short notice. If you want to be certain about a class running, please call us! Tel: 020 7837 3402. Please also note that tickets bought online for our classes are non-refundable, for that day/class class only, and cannot be used for a different day or carried forward to another class!

Ballroom (Beginners)

About the event

Teachers: Nick Breakspear and Michelle Pickering


Things to bring with you: Dance shoes or comfortable trainers


Summary: We have three, fantastic, popular weekly Ballroom classes at Claremont – Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced, advocating for all levels of ability and confidence.


Tutors Nick and Michelle are both highly accomplished Ballroom Dancers and Tutors, drawing upon a wealth of experience of teaching Ballroom to various communities. They take a joined-up approach to teaching, calmly and expertly demonstrating steps together or separately, often splitting attendees into two groups: leaders and followers.


Leaders and followers are taught the steps to no music, then to music, regularly switching partners. Nick and Michelle often join in with practising routines and switching partners, practically guiding and engaging participants throughout. Although these sessions focus on partner work, you do not have to come with a partner. Regular changing of partners throughout classes helps to increase confidence and build relationships with fellow Claremonteers. The calm, assured confidence and comfortability of the Tutors makes for lots of fun learning in a safe and enjoyable environment.
