We’re Colette and Robin, and we teach all of the classes at Maddy’s. We make learning easy and enjoyable and have designed our own courses with unique hints and tips for the very best results - It’s why people travel such long distances to come to our lessons.
We love 1940s and 1950s music and dancing, collect and wear vintage clothing, and drive a 1947 Plymouth convertible car.
Please contact us if you have any questions. We’ll be happy to chat.
What should I wear?
You can wear anything that’s comfortable. Lightweight clothing is recommended, as you’ll get warm. Low-heeled shoes or trainers are best.
What happens if I miss a lesson?
Don’t worry, every lesson includes revision from the previous week, so if you miss a lesson you will be able to catch up.
How good will I be?
After our beginners course you’ll be able to amaze your friends at parties, weddings and rock’n’roll clubs... Take our advanced course and you’ll learn extra steps, feel more confident and look even more impressive.
