How to choose your dance – a handy guide

By Lorraine Ansell | 19 August 2022

Dance is a great way to exercise and have fun at the same time. It is a great corporal workout and a way to give the brain a challenge as well as our feet. And it is FAB-U-LOUS FUN! We love all dance styles and at First Dance Studios we have many dance disciplines for you to choose from. The question is – how do you know what style is for you? Come along and join us and choose for yourself.

On Saturday 3rd September 2022 from 10am we have a full day of dance for you to try out a new dance! For all ages from 16 + and no previous dance experience necessary – bring yourself and dance!

How to choose your perfect dance

As we are all unique, wonderful individuals, the dances that appeals to us will vary.
