Club Willoughby,
26 Crabbes Ave, Willoughby
Monday Nights 7.30pm til 9.45pm

  • For those serious about improving their dancing, whether it be for competitions or just to become a better partner on the social dance floor!
  • Suitable for intermediate and advanced level.
  • Focussed, topic specific classes with TWO TEACHERS from 7.30pm til 8.45pm (occasionally til 9pm depending on the topic) followed by freestyle time until 9.45pm.
  • Each week one person will be randomly selected from the computer to receive feedback from that night’s teachers during freestyle time.  Make the most of this mini private lesson to further improve and develop your skills!
  • No need to lock in to a whole term – all usual casual rates and class passes apply.  There is however a structured development and flow from week to week within each term, so bear this in mind if you’re skipping any weeks.
  • A partner is required for MOST weeks – check the schedule below.  On the few weeks where no partner is required, all couples will be expected to rotate unless otherwise specified.
  • The schedule below is subject to change depending on teacher availability throughout the year.

IMPORTANT:

MasterClass Mondays are designed as an enhancement, not a replacement, to your Ceroc experience on other nights of the week. It is therefore expected that you continue to dance at your regular venue(s) to share your new skills and inspire and encourage others. Without this commitment MasterClass Mondays are not sustainable.
