In addition to our the usual beginner and Intermediate classes, we hold monthly Master Classes on the first Thursday of each month which are designed for dancers who are experienced intermediates needing some further inspiration and ideas to broaden their dancing horizons. For further details click here .
Barton Hall is a really superb venue with a massive sprung dancefloor, full bar, seperate chillout area, an 8 speaker PA system creating balanced & uniform sound levels throughout the large hall which means there are no excessively loud or quiet spots. The venue also has a fully integrated lighting sytem to enhance the atmosphere and great vibe at this venue.
There is now a face book group for all things Ceroc - Click here to go to join and get the latest updates, photos, requests or chat with fellow dancers whilst pretending to do some work!
