This is a folk dance class. The studio is big and lovely. The teacher, Alina is an excellent character dance teacher, very encouraging and always positive. We have a nice group of dancers of different levels and ages. All are very lovely people. We have a laugh at the same time as we focus and learn the different dance styles from Ukrainean to Spanish..... We practise and warm up at the barre first and then we move on to the centre work to learn different choreographies. There are times that we are invited to perform them if we wish. We use outfits, props... Its a dance that everyone can do with just practising it. We do it on Saturday Morning at Saint Petter's Church studio in Chiswick, just before the ballet class.
