Lunchtime classes take place fairly regularly between 12-2pm – contact info@qte.dance for more information about forthcoming dates and the venue.

Evening classes  (Venue, Epworth Halls, see below)
7pm – 8pm and/or 8pm – 9pm

NOTE: The classes run for two hours. You can come to either or both of the hours; if you are able to come along to the first hour you can always decide whether or not to stay for the second hour.

Venue/Location: Epworth Halls, Methodist Church 25 Nicolson Square, Edinburgh. EH8 9BX (this is very close to the UoE George Square campus)

Cost: 1 hour classes £6 (£4)
For two hours (i.e. 12 noon – 2pm or 7pm – 9pm): £10 (£6)
Come by yourself or with a partner. In the class you will be asked to switch round so everyone gets the chance to dance with everyone else (of course, you do not have to do this if you don’t want to). The community is welcoming and this process works well, we are looking forward to dancing with you!

 

What to wear: Comfortable clothing you can walk in. Long skirts are best avoided as they can be inhibiting. Flat shoes with leather or suede soles are preferred; rubber soles can be difficult as they can stick to the floor. You may want to wear high heels at some point, usually to follow, but in the class you will be asked to take both roles so flat shoes are better. Socks are also fine as they allow you to feel the floor.
