Yes, thats right – only Donahey’s offers you the chance to catch up your class if you missed your regular class.
We teach the same steps all week at all 3 of our Ballroom Beginners classes, so for example if you usually attend Monday but end up working late then you can just turn up Tuesday or Wednesday and learn exactly what we taught on Monday – just perfect so you don’t miss out – especially with 3 Ballroom Beginner classes a week to go out.
It really doesn’t matter which venue you attend, same steps, same teachers, plus you don’t even need to let us know – just turn up to one class each week and you’ll learn to dance…easy.
If you are planning a vacation holiday during your 6-weeks just let us know in advance, and we’ll carry those weeks forward for you.

Once you’ve completed your initial 6-week pre-paid block we hope you’ll continue with your strictly dancing & sign up for the following 6-week block. Your 6-week consecutive block commences the week you begin the course. Unfortunately though, missed/lost weeks other than for vacation holidays are strictly non transferable.
Once the 18 weeks are complete, the course will then repeat itself to cover the dances for those that have joined mid-course. For those of you that are interested in reviewing the dances already learnt you are more than welcome to stay on the course, and for those that would like to extend their knowledge of the dances learnt, you may join our intermediate class subject to availability.
We now have available our very popular Donahey’s Ballroom & Latin dancing course companion DVD.
Featuring all 14 dances taught on our beginners course; Ballroom, Latin, Argentine Tango, American Smooth & much more all shown step-by-step, filmed at Ashton Town Hall by Paul & Amy Donahey. The DVD benefits from a full practice soundtrack, it really is a Donahey’s exclusive – your ideal practice companion.
This DVD is priced at just £25 and is exclusively available to Donahey’s members who are currently enrolled in our beginner Ballroom dancing courses.
All our courses are especially designed for beginners so don’t worry we’ll be teaching you throughout the lesson, one step at a time.
Something comfortable, flattish shoes preferably not trainers. No high heels, flip flops, steel heels or toe caps please.
No, as we partner people up with our teachers, assistants and the many others who come without a partner. If you join as a group of friends, we may ask you to partner each other up – this way it’s more fun for you all & you can practice with each other when you’re out & about!
During all our dance classes, we start by teaching the steps solo, then we partner you up together, then we change partners for a short while (no one is left without a partner), then we partner you back up together.
Changing partners during class is the quickest way to improve your dancing, it makes men more positive leaders and ladies more receptive to your partner
Not least it relieves some of the pressure of dancing together if one of you is struggling, it makes the class much more fun & sociable for you, plus you both learn through dancing with our teachers, assistants & other members of the class. Trust us, it works, that’s why we do it – leaving two beginners dancing together for an hour can be extremely frustrating for both of you, and not much fun!
We can assure you though, you will always finish the lessons dancing & practicing with your partner.
Yes, you’ll need to reserve your place & make full course payment in advance in order to be sure of a place on the night.
