Step By Step Dance School will reopen on January 25 and is currently enrolling for dance classes for children and adults.
Located at Inis Carraig, Athlone (near Golden Island ), Step By Step offers a range of dance classes including ballroom dancing for children aged 5-10 upwards, ballroom dancing for adults, wedding first dance private lessons, and dance aerobics for adults and seniors.
According to instructor Lukas, the benefits of ballroom dancing for children are many. It helps to develop the mind and body while still being fun. Children learn a new skill and develop their self-confidence and coordination, while making new friends in a safe and relaxing setting.
There are regular opportunities for students to demonstrate their progress to parents and teachers, and accelerated training is provided for students with particular potential.
Ballroom dancing classes, both for children and adults, can positively influence lifestyle and social life. Students are introduced to dance from around the world, including tango, waltz, jive, samba, and mambo.
Dance lessons are available seven days a week. Adult lessons cost €12 per one-hour lesson. Monthly tickets are available at €35 for four hours, €60 for eight hours, and €100 for 20 hours.
Step By Step dance classes take place at Inis Carraig, No 18, Business Centre, Athlone (near Golden Island ). To find out more about the classes on offer, or to book classes, contact Lukas (085 ) 7326098 or Tom (086 ) 8278111.
