See how to attend THE FREE CLASS OF THE WEEK in "news button"

THE ONLY "DANCE CLUB" in Galway with a monthly pass, register for 1 or 2 month & take as many classes as you wish

"Shop around" is essential
Compare prices & quality,... but also references
 
You would ask references for a babyseatter or employee you surely should do same for a teacher! Dance involve "shaping muscles & body posture" it is ESSENTIAL to get a professional guidance from a person who studied professionally dance & not from a person who like dancing & just decide to "open" a class saying "I'm only teaching beginners!" which is the most difficult level to teach as 1) the person needs to get the right movements 2) The person could not assess if it is correct or wrong! you could teach me Chinese, I would not know if it is Japanese or Russian or "Mickey mouth language" !
Believe me I have been asked & I even taught several times people who "love" dancing but didn't train in Dance in view to teach either in "Summer camp", youth club, gym etc...taking those few classes didn't make them dancers nor teachers ...but there they are...out in the world offering courses as unfortunately there is no government qualification required to "shape people's muscles"! It is frightening!

Would you see someone taking 6 piano lessons & teach piano! Dance isn't easier!
