What to expect at a Ceroc Dance Class

A typical Ceroc Australia Dance Company night is three hours of enjoyment starting with a 50 minute Beginner class where you will learn a few basic, fun moves, rotating partners every few minutes. The classes are not run on term basis, so people can start their first class on any night without having to enrol for a course. You don't need to bring a partner and everyone gets to dance with everyone else.

The Beginner class is followed by 20 minutes of "freestyle" social dancing where you can get up and practice what you've learnt.

The class is then split into two for another 50 minute class; beginners go on to do a 'Freestyle' class, a thorough, personalised revision of the Beginner class with more tips to help consolidate what they have learnt in the first class. Meanwhile, those with more experience take the more challenging Intermediate class.

We recommend you do at least 8 Beginner and Freestyle classes before moving on to the Intermediate classes. Another way of assessing if you are ready to move up is to see if you can "freestyle" confidently. Alternatively you can ask one of the teachers for their opinion.

At some venues, Advanced classes are held as well as or instead of the Intermediate Class. Check out the Who’s Teaching page to see when the Advanced classes are scheduled.

The lessons are followed by more "freestyle" social dancing where you can mix with your new friends. Most evenings end with a group stopping off for coffee at a local cafe. Dress is casual and comfortable. Shoes with leather, plastic or suede soles are good. Don't forget your towel and deodorant in the hot summer months and guys, a change of shirt!

Take a look at our Hints & Tips page. It has a lot of helpful information for new dancers.

Teachers

Olivia Haddrick and Karl Santa

All Ceroc Australia Teachers have undergone intensive training to ensure that we give you the best possible expertise. Teachers are keen for you to enjoy the night, so why not grab one for a dance after the class. Our teachers are all featured on the "Staff" menu above.

Taxi Dancers

In addition to the teachers, we have 'Taxi Dancers' who are on hand to help you go through the moves and provide useful hints so that you will soon be dancing with confidence. They are a specially selected, friendly group of regular dancers who are specifically there to dance with beginners. Taxi Dancers are easy to spot as they have a distinctive sash tucked in their pocket or waistband. They are great help during your first few weeks of classes, and they are on duty all evening, so make sure you hail one!

Door Staff

The door staff and venue manager are on hand to run the night. They oversee admissions and new members. Please ask your door staff for information or leaflets about workshops and Dance Parties in your area.
