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. :)

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. If we are available, you may alternatively be able to dance with one of us or a class assistant.

 

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