Learning to dance with Ceroc is the fastest growing dance phenomenon in the country.  Our fusion of a wide range of different dance styles is easy to learn, sociable and fun, and can be danced to any music with a regular beat.  Ceroc DJ's play music ranging from 70's classics through to your current chart favourites.  A Ceroc evening provides a fantastic platform for learning a wide range of dance skills and choreographic techniques, building confidence with creativity and expression, and is a great way to meet people, have fun and keep fit.

So why is Ceroc so great?

  • Our syllabus, devised by our very own Dance Education Specialist, will help you develop a range of different skills, applicable to all partner and solo dance styles, reflecting the requirements detailed in the Dance National Curriculum.
  • We are affiliated members of the IDJTA (International Dancesport Judges and Trainers Association) who oversee the quality of our syllabus and manage the high standard of our teacher training, so you are guaranteed the best dance education available.
  • Every night there are always complete beginners so you'll never be alone, and every class is suited to a range of different experience levels.
  • It's social and easy to pick up, so the learning is FUN !
  • There is no need to bring a partner, so you get to meet, interact and choreograph with everyone else in the room.

Group singing is so beneficial to our wellbeing, and has been scientifically proven to provide a wealth of physical and psychological health benefits, including:

  • Lifting our mood
  • Promoting deep breathing (great for managing anxiety or lung conditions)
  • Improving immunity
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Improving posture
  • Making us feel better !

In fact one recent study showed that group singing is as beneficial to our health as yoga !

Sing Your Pain Away is a group singing class for wellbeing, health and fun. With equal amounts of singing and laughter, the aim is to promote wellbeing, not get everything note perfect.

At Sing Your Pain Away we teach you some breathing technique & some singing technique and we learn uplifting songs that we sing in unison or simple harmonies that everyone can enjoy. Even if you think you can’t sing, you’ll still get the health benefits, and in fact most of our members really surprise themselves with how much they can achieve vocally with a little tuition !
