8 Good Reasons
to Learn to Dance
with Dancing Derek

My ‘beginner’ Ballroom and Latin American Dance lessons Cork will show you easy to follow steps in a variety of social dances starting with the Social Foxtrot.

Each week we revise the previous week’s steps, and, over time, you learn dances like the Social Quickstep, Slow and Old Time Waltz, and Jive. That way, you can go out after each lesson and practice the basic steps straight away, and enjoy that great confidence-boost.

My classes are ideal for you if you want to learn basic figures for your first Wedding dance, a social dance function or for regular social dancing. The classes feature many Ballroom, Latin American and party dances in a beginner course, and continuation courses are also available.


I teach people of all ages, fitness and ability. My mission is to get people on the dance floor. My hope is that marriages will be enhanced and singles will make a multitude of new friends. Everybody with any kind of an ear for music can dance, it might just take a little practice – that’s my firm belief. I have adapted a way that brings unconfident people to dance for the first time in their lives because of my patient manner and ability to make dancing look easy
