Some of our fantastic reviews

I am a very anxious

I am a very anxious person badly wanting to dance and dancing badly! Having tried other schools and not feeling at all comfortable, I found Chris and Mel. After only a few weeks I find myself looking forward to lessons instead of feeling terrified! There may be a dance in me yet! Great teachers, lovely people and good fun! Can’t rate them highly enough.

We were absolute beginners but

We were absolute beginners but can’t recommend Chris and Mel enough. They were recommended by a friend and we’re so glad we went along. The class is welcoming, fun and a great mix of people/ages. Chris and Mel are fantastic dancers and equally good teachers- patient, involved and always putting the fun and pleasure of dancing first, however much we struggle!
Even after a few months, we can manage the basics of Foxtrot, Quickstep, Waltz, Cha cha, Rhumba, Jive!

Keep dancing!!

I have been learning to

I have been learning to dance now with Chris and Mel , for a couple of years now.
I love their teaching techniques and their patience, it takes some of us a while to get it , just so.
I can’t get enough and I know they will teach me to be confident and able leading the ladies around the dance floor.

After trying out a few

After trying out a few dance classes and not finding what we were looking for – fun! – we found Chris and Mel. We badly want to dance but unfortunately, we dance badly! Chris and Mel have made us feel that we may actually be able to do it … eventually. Great teachers, lovely people, fun sessions – you can’t go wrong.

Learning to dance with Mel

Learning to dance with Mel & Chris is very enjoyable and you are made to feel like a group of friends instead of feeling like two teachers and a group of students. We can ask any questions we like, and Mel & Chris teach in a way that is easy to understand and you will quickly be dancing better than you ever thought. Top teachers + Good dancers, very friendly, and a relaxed atmosphere.

After two years of no

After two years of no dancing due to the COVID pandemic, we took up badly needed refresher lessons again with a new teacher. It didn’t go well.
Then, thank heavens, we found Mel & Chris at Absolute Ballroom.
We have to say that they are the most friendly, encouraging, and interactive dance teachers we have ever met. They offer lots of instruction, always with a fun element, and never with any pressure.
They are down to earth people who understand what learning is all about. Just returned from a super, group day out to the Tower Ballroom in Blackpool!
