Louis is a fantastic teacher. He breaks the routines down into easy to follow steps, so even complete dance novices can have a go, but also provides a level of challenge for more experienced dancers. His positive energy is infectious and will leave you buzzing at the end of each session! Generally, the class is a real mix of ages, experience & cultures and is a very warm and welcoming community to all.
