Website gets an update!

It's only when you have been dancing sometime when you learn "floor craft" so in these difficult times of a Pandemic we are just not able to do what we do safely.This is not intentional but when dancers get in the zone and concentration is high we tend to lose where we are. are.are.


Talking of COVID-19 I think we are all now aware that all classes have stopped. It does not really need explaining that we are not really able to social dance whilst keeping 2 metres plus between us.


Ballroom dancing involves use of all the room and usually all couples have different routines and in normal circumstances we tend to bump into each other. This is not intentional but when dancers get in the zone and concentration is high we tend to lose where we are.

It's only when you have been dancing sometime when you learn "floorcraft" so in these difficult times of a Pandemic we are just not able to do what we do safely.


At Dance TW Exeter when teaching beginners we try to address the "Floorcraft" early on which encourages dancers not to gaze at their feet - they will do what you want them to do without watching them!


Lots of our dancers come obviously to learn to dance but they also rely on the social side of our groups. Meeting others when you live on your own is so important to our mental well being.


So, for now, let's all keep safe, where masks where we need to, make space where we need to and be kind.
