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. :)

 

 

private lessons

For individuals, couples, or small groups (upon arrangement)

For bookings please call Sarah 0402592253

 

Standard Cost: 1hr $75 or $40 30mins

If you represent a youth/student organisation, particularly if you are involved with dance or theatre, please contact us about working together to provide introductory courses and/or workshops for your members.

intro swing

Our first lesson on Monday nights (Intro Swing @ 6:15pm) is FREE! Join us with your dance partner as long as you like until you are comfortable moving up into are more advanced classes. 

 

Basic swing helps prepare you for the other dance styles we teach, so if you have never danced before, these lessons are a great place to start. Similarly, if you want to come and check us out and take a look at how the partnered lessons work, this is also a good option - though if you've danced before bear in mind that the content is intended for beginners! 


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!

What do I wear?

Comfortable clothes you can easily move in.

I don't have dance shoes! it's ok, wear smooth sole shoes or socks. 

Do I need to Book?

For new students  please txt Sarah on 0402592253 to confirm we are teaching that week.

Please arrive 15 minutes early.  If you have an eventbrite ticket please have it available on your smart phone, alternatively a paper copy is fine. 

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.

Drinks and Food

Water is provided but please bring snacks if you want a extra energy
