picture soon Sarah White & Rob Dix
Sara and Rob's main aim is to encourage ladies to dance more stylishly with good technique and improved confidence and to give guys the confidence to encourage this.

Couple this with a love of expressive, interpretative music where you can get lost in the moment, and a passion for Blues and you’ll start to understand why they aim to make their classes simple, lead-able and above all… fun!

They dance and teach by the motto: Keep it Simple. Keep it Stylish.
