Bookings:         email

You are welcome to select your own dance to teach, alternatively a list of suitable dances with instructions and music is available. Guidance prior to the event to help prepare and analyse your dance will be shared as well as feedback after the session.

Are you interested in learning how to lead a social dance class? Have you thought about teaching for your club, school or group of local enthusiasts? If so then this workshop is also for you.

It is envisaged that this will be the first in a series of workshops relating to teacher training, offering basic teaching skills.

Queries? Speak to your club teacher or RSCDS Cape Town Chairman Heather Hodgson.
