Ballroom dance classes are a great way to learn a new skill whilst keeping fit, meeting new people and socialising with friends.
At Kylie Jones Ballroom classes run weekly (term time only) but Kylie will begin teaching a new dance on the first Thursday of every month, alternating between Ballroom and Latin American style. If you are new to the group and would like to join, this is the best time to start!

“Super class with a great teacher. Started in our 60s with Kylie for a special occasion where we needed to dance. Have had both group and private lessons. She is the most patient teacher ever. The classes are good fun and we have kept going after the event. If you are remotely interested give it a go.”
“Enjoyable ballroom dancing. We find Kylie to be a very good dance teacher and she creates a very friendly atmosphere to her classes. The daytime classes are very convenient for us retirees and a chance for us to enjoy an activity together. We always look forward to our Thursdays.”
“All activity keeps the brain younger, but a 2017 study from the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases, which compared walking and cycling with dancing, found only dancing directly improved people’s balance – a sign of better connections to the brain. The lead scientist, Dr Kathrie Rehfeld, suggests that the challenge of learning and remembering steps creates the extra brain boost.”
