We are soon to have a new addition to our Cool Cats family! Our son is due in early June (2022), so we are now on break from lessons until we are ready to return with a new little learner ;)
Please go to the dance styles tab for lesson videos.

^All lessons are taught strictly by the couple, so if you don't want to keep up with the course - you don't have to! However, lessons are structured with content suitable for beginner to intermediate dancers, so you can pick and practice on the content that suits you best. If you want more, just let us know and we'll have plenty beyond intermediate level for you too ;)

Monday Nights @ The Woombye Lower School of Arts Hall
(1/3 Hill St, Woombye QLD)
6:00 - 7:00pm > Slow Swing (Beginners)
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 - 8:00pm > Rockabilly (Beginners)
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!

Night/Time TBA > Kick Step Rock 'n' Roll (Intermediate)
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.

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. :)

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