What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

Perform and incorporate steps into an improvers routine that you will be able to dance in the sessions and outside the studio environment.
Dance the two dances with correct footwork and to correct tempo of music.
Lead and follow different students on the course in the three dances.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

The course is aimed at students who have completed our beginner’s course which covers the basic foundation of the these dances or students that have already the basic steps and wish to build on their existing skills.

In order to get the most from the course you will be able to:
• Follow spoken instructions.
• Use numbers to recognise rhythms within the three dances.
• Work within groups and pairs safely.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

The tutor will initially demonstrate the steps separately for the leaders and followers and also give verbal instructions on how to dance the steps.
You will practice dancing the steps in groups then with a partner and then to music.
There will be no work outside the class but you will be given handouts regarding the steps taught, so will be able to practice the steps at home.

As part of the course content, your tutor may record your image for initial and ongoing assessment purposes. You are entitled to decline to participate in the recording of your image.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

No other costs involved but learners are advised to wear loose fitting clothes, no trainers, flip-flops or sling back shoes and to bring a drink.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

Continue with Ballroom improvers or discuss further with course tutor.

It was great to have an improvers course to move onto after getting to grips with most of the basics. The course continued to be fun but was definitely more challenging with lots to learn and practice - and the handouts of full routines with lots of details about technical points to work on are brilliant (and not provided on other courses). The tutor is incredibly patient and good humoured and it was good to have a helper to demonstrate detailed bits of the steps. If you are older and a bit arthritic you are definitely helped and encouraged! At the end of it I do feel I am a better dancer and am more confident about going to tea dances and other social dances. Thanks.

I did this course after completing the Build beginners ballroom. It was great to have a class I could progress to once I was confident with the basics. The teacher creates a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere which makes everyone feel relaxed and confident. It's a friendly class because of this. It does push you to the next level, but the teacher is very flexible and will always go over anything if you're struggling. There's a range of abilities in the class but everyone is supportive of each other. The teacher produces handouts with all the steps written down so you can go over it yourself at home, which is very useful. It's also good that the teacher usually has a helper so can show us what the moves are supposed to look like. I'd definitely recommend this class if you have completed beginners level or are trying to brush up old skills. I'm delighted that Build ran this excellent course so I could have somewhere friendly where I could carry on learning to dance.
