GO Dance in South West London

Dance in South West London If you’re heading for south west London, you’d be advised to put on your dancing shoes.

With hardly any effort required you’ll discover a host of clubs with dance floors to demonstrate your hip-shifting prowess. Meanwhile, the home of British hotstepping, the Royal Academy of Dance [map], can be found at Battersea Square.

The Academy, RAD to its friends, offers ballet and jazz tuition to adults
and children and has trained hundreds of leading internationally acclaimed dancers.

RAD, established back in 1920, is one of the largest and most influential dance education and training organisations in the world.
The creative tone in south west London is set by RAD’s 1,200 students who contribute wholeheartedly to the area, bringing a sense of enthusiasm wherever they elegantly and gracefully move.

There is certainly no shortage of dance venues, events and classes for dance enthusiasts of every discipline. For instance, the Kensington Dance Studio is one of many learning institutions that aims to bring all forms of social dancing to everyone in an elegant and sociable atmosphere.

Steering away from the contemporary, keen rhythmic movers will locate any number of places where they can Salsa, Merengue, Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Jive, Paso Doble, Tango, Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Vienese Waltz and Lindy Hop to their heart and feet’s content.

For those looking for something totally Spanish-themed, flamenco classes are held in, amongst other places, The Lantern Arts Centre [map] over in Wimbledon.

The Brixton Recreation Centre [map] is one of several similar facilities that offer dance classes. Brixton, a hotbed of cultural diversity, is also home to the La Salsa Company.

Many places - like the Bedford Ballroom [map] in Balham - still exist and provide a real alternative to pumping, hard-house dance nights designed for the younger gyrator.
