Group Lessons

Monday Nights @ The Woombye Lower  School of Arts Hall 

(1/3 Hill St, Woombye QLD)

 

6:15 - 7:00pm > Slow Swing (Beginners)

Music: Slow

 

Beginner level lessons in Slow Swing, providing the basics of the style that may be developed further through Blues and/or Lindy-Hop. As a a slower style, Swing is a perfect option for those who have never danced before.

 

This dance style feels both so elegant and expressive; or when you ramp it up into Lindy Hop - so explosive and sheer fun! 

 

This lesson may also be used by couples interested in other sower styles such as Jive or 4 Beat Blues, if prepared to learn during group lesson practice times.

 

7:00 - 7:45pm > Kick Step Rock 'n' Roll (Intermediate)

Music: Slow-Mid

BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL! Lesson capped at max. 8 couples.

 

Lessons in Kick-Step ("6-Step") Rock 'n' Roll  and Kick-Ball-Change ("7-Step") Rock 'n' Roll. These lessons feature more demanding content and, whilst teaching from basics, it is recommended for dancers with previous experience in a related style. This lesson also allows Swing or Rockabilly students to progress from Basic to Intermediate content and any students interested to introduce Aerials (lifts, drops, and props) to their dancing.

 

The Rock 'n' Roll lessons are structured for group learning (6 week courses), with students developing other styles taught by the couple during group lesson practice times.  Hence, a booking for this lesson  (i.e. prior confirmation of interest) is essential as numbers will be restricted to ensure good teaching outcomes. 

 

7:45 - 8:30pm > Rockabilly (Beginners)

Music: Mid-Fast

 

Learn the Rebel's dance! Great music, great style, and great fun! 

 

Beginner level lessons in Rockabilly, providing the basics of the style that may be developed further in our Intermediate (7pm) class. As a faster style, Rockabilly is the perfect option for those who like pumping music and want to get moving!

The 1st Thursday night of the month is dance night at the Palmwoods Bowls Club. It's just 5 minutes down the road and is a great chance to both practice and socialise!

performance training

Whether it's to help support our local festivals and retro-dance events, or if you want to compete locally or across the country, Cool Cats wants to help you Take the Next Step! 

 

Join us to develop your dance further and also improve your fitness. Training includes stretching & warm-up, plus core exercises for those interested in Aerials (lift-work). 

 

Note that such training is not a lesson per se - It is not necessarily about new content or skills, but improving upon what you have already learned.  However, as Nathan can't help himself, there is always some teaching and time for questions, critique, and guidance. :)

Commonly Asked Questions

I have never danced before is that ok?

Yes, its totally fine. Our classes are designed to teach you the basics as well as advanced. We love helping people learn! However, please consider the information given on recommended experience and speed of music when making your lesson choice(s).

Please arrive 5-10 minutes early for registration and warm up.

For further information  please txt Sarah on 0402592253. She works through the day so txt is prefered.

I have no Partner can I Participate?

The lessons are non-rotational and intended for partnered students. However, please ring first to check if we have other interested dancers looking for a lesson partner. People are often looking for a dance partner (especially leads!) so we try to help our students find dance buddies when possible. 

 

We do our best to include our unpartnered students and find avenues for them to keep dancing.
