Friendly, expert and informal tuition, done with lots of laughs and so good that they are (somehow) capable of teaching even me. Their commitment to their students and to dance is also quite astonishing.
Darren and Lucilla are the best dance teachers around, highly recommend their classes!!
Absolutely love it!
We have met some lovely people in the classes and the Socials every 4- 6 weeks are a great way to practice the steps and get some extra tuition . If you have always wanted to try ballroom dancing but have felt unsure or shy, I promise you will quickly gain the confidence to dance across the floor and also you will have a lot of fun along the way!
There is an excellent balance of conversation, learning, teaching and humour in the classes, with none of the teachers taking themselves too seriously. Great fun, good exercise and excellent value for the amount of sheer enjoyment! xxx
Excellent beginner dance lessons!
Excellent beginner dance lessons! Fun, easy way to learn how to dance. We are/were completely new to dancing and were nervous to start. So glad we did!
Amazing, patient teachers. Amazing, thoughtful, caring people. We’ve tried a few different types of dance and Saturn Dance is the one we can not leave because of how much we have learnt from them and how fun the lessons are.
I’m really glad that we found Saturn Dance; after only 4 months we now know steps of 10 dances. Our range of steps and technique may not be at Strictly level but we can get up and dance to so many different rhythms. The classes are so informal and fun and everyone seems to make surprising progress.
Started as a non dancer
Darren Lucilla, Helen ,Jen and Steph all have a relaxed style of teaching Lessons are fun as are the social events Would recommend to anyone ..give it a go !
Have been going about 18m now. Every week we review a dance and/or learn some new steps. The lessons are easy to follow and not scary at all! ☺️ Social dances are great fun. Highly recommend!
If you’ve ever thought about giving dancing a go – look no further than Saturn Dance. Great expertise in a relaxed atmosphere learning alongside dancers of your level (we started from scratch with a brand new group). Monthly socials and extra practice sessions too. 100% recommend.
It is really lovely to join a class where you you can enjoy the dancing without any pressure. Would totally recommend Saturn Dance classes.
Absolutely love it!
We’ve been dancing with Saturn Dance for 6 years now and absolutely love it! We started off as very nervous beginners but thanks to Darren and Lucilla’s brilliant teaching we now have the confidence to do so many dances( Foxtrot, Samba, Cha Cha, Waltz etc)
You’ll love it
We are now absolutely hooked and really look forward to our weekly class. I would recommend it to anyone who is tempted to give ballroom dancing a try – you’ll love it!
Always a laugh
Always a laugh, great for beginners – watch you don’t step on your partners toes!
So much to offer
There are extra practice sessions once a month, which is ideal for those of us whose kitchens are too small to practice at home. There are monthly social dances: great fun with loads of support from fellow dancers and teachers. There is even a glitter ball!
Very much enjoying the lessons
They teach the lessons so you can just enjoy dancing and ensure you can make it around the floor. Very glad we chose to start going and will continue to do so for as long as we can.
One of the most enjoyable hobbies I’ve ever had
If you have ever even had the remotest inkling or tug of desire that you would like to try dance lessons then you have to go to Saturn Dance. The classes are warm, friendly, funny and welcoming whether you’re going alone (as I did) or as a couple.
Both Darren and Lucilla are exceptional dancers and exceptional teachers who are able to explain the WHY as well as the HOW of footwork, arm placement, positioning etc.
Great teaching and community.
Started as a beginner and felt very welcomed and encouraged. Good value and a great environment to give dancing a go for the first time, or, improve and build on your existing skills!
I felt welcomed from the moment I walked into the class (if deeply uncomfortable due to it being completely out of my comfort zone!)
Great instructors who are extremely patient and bring a lot of fun to learning.
The classes are always fun
Darren and Lucilla are always cheerful, positive and welcoming. They create a relaxed atmosphere and make you feel encouraged and not intimidated.
Fantastic instructor and a great, fun class!
The teaching is high quality, yet friendly and relaxed
Saturn dance are a great dance school for anyone interested in getting in Latin and Ballroom! The teaching is high quality, yet friendly and relaxed, with teachers eager to help and demonstrating a genuine love of dance and a keenness to share it with others.
Very much enjoying our lessons
Not going to lie, I was a little nervous when we first started, but the lessons are nice and informal and Darren is incredibly kind & patient.
