Cheek2Cheek Dance is all about the joy of dance – for people to have a really good time when they learn ballroom dancing and to go home with a smile on their faces. It’s a great way to get some light exercise and to share an activity with your partner or a friend. Ballroom dancing is a social activity – you’ll make new friends and discover a new addiction!
Weekly Dance Classes
Cheek2Cheek Dance runs weekly classes in Ballroom, Latin American and Sequence dancing. For solo dancers we run the Latin Rhythms class: 4 dance routines over 6 weeks, lots of giggling and a modicum of exercise. Adults of all ages and abilities welcome.
For the latest class schedule visit www.cheek2cheekdance.co.uk/classes
We use three venues with free car parking and wooden floors (much easier to dance on):
BOXFORD Village Hall, RG20 8DD
LAMBOURN Catholic Hall, RG17 8NU
WANTAGE The Beacon, OX12 9BX
If you need a little help outside class, then we have video clips on our Youtube channel:

Learn to Dance in a Day
If you’re short on time or just want the basics for a wedding or other event, enrol on one of our Learn to Dance in a Day! workshops (10am – 2pm).
Wedding Dance Lessons
If you need inspiration for the first dance at your wedding, we can help with uncomplicated choreography matched to your choice of music, your ability and any specific requirements that you might have. Of course, if you want something more complex then we can do that too!

Tea Dances, Formal Balls & Dance Trips
We run three formal balls each year with live music, catering and a chance to get dressed up and have a great night out – as well as smaller events like tea dances with recorded music. We also run Cheek2Cheek Dance trips – could be a weekend in Blackpool to dance at The Tower Ballroom or a day trip into London to dance at The Waldorf Hotel Tea Dance.

“A fantastic way to spend time with your partner. Alison is a brilliant dance teacher who manages to make our left feet go right, even when we don’t think they will! Give it a go but beware, addiction sets in very quickly!” Micky A , Lambourn
“Simon and I had an awesome time with you last night! Thank you for your warm welcome, your enthusiastic personality (which is such a help to nervous people starting something new for the first time), and for your patience!” Blair B, Hungerford
“Alison was such a wonderful dance teacher, choreographing our routine in 4 lessons! She made us feel so relaxed and confident with our routine, and listening to our views on what we wanted out of the routine. With lots of laughs and giggles along the way, we are so pleased to have learnt a first dance routine. Would highly recommend her to all! Thank you Alison!” Laura and Matt S, Wantage
“Alison, thank you so so much for your 1970s disco routine instruction on Saturday night. We had an absolute blast. You were just brilliant and everyone commented on how much fun it was to do something like that at the beginning of the party. There are few people who can pull something like that off and you are clearly one of those few.” Emma
