Two Left Feet is a voluntary organisation offering dance classes appealing to everyone, including people who have not had the confidence to dance before and believe they have ‘two left feet’ – we attract people from all walks of life, including members with learning/physical disabilities and from groups which may normally feel excluded from mainstream activities.
Two Left Feet provides an opportunity for people to have an affordable night out, where they will have fun, socialise, learn new skills and engage in physical activity.
The styles of dance taught are many and varied and, range from bhangra to ballet and salsa to street dance. Each session is led by an experienced teacher who has been selected, not only for their dancing ability but also on their ability to make their lessons fun and easy to follow and to make participants feel comfortable. Emphasis is on enjoyment, music and movement rather than getting the moves right.
The dances are broken down into simple and repetitive movements to enable everyone to benefit from the feelings of success and achievement. The teachers also adapt the dance for participants who have difficulties with any particular movements. No partner is needed and people are welcome to come along, watch and enjoy the music and atmosphere if they do not want to join in.
Two Left Feet encourages wider community participation by making links with local dance teachers and directing people to other groups and classes in the area if they enjoy a particular type of dance and want to continue learning more about it.
Dance sessions are fun and easy to follow lessons with experienced and professional teachers and held every other Wednesday evening in the fully accessible Oakwood Centre venue in Woodley.
