Caroline Coomber School of Dance

Professional Tuition in Ballroom, Latin, Rock 'n' Roll, Sequence, and Belly Dance

Come along and experience the joy of learning to dance at our regular sessions in Elgin and Inverness. Ballroom, Latin American, Classical Sequence, and Rock 'n' Roll are all taught by Caroline Coomber, a Professional Dance Teacher who is a member of the United Kingdom Alliance of Professional Teachers of Dance and an Associate of the International Dance Teachers Association.

Our sessions include classes, workshops, practice sessions, private tuition, wedding tuition and social dance events, medal work, and competition work.

Once a year we hold a Medal Test Day, and we regularly invite top class Professional Dancers to the area to demonstrate and lecture for us. In the last few years we have had Richard Still and Morgan Hemphill; Ben Taylor and Stefanie Bosen; Michael and Lauren Hemera; and AJ Pritchard and Chloe Hewitt (who are now working as Professional dancers on 'Strictly Come Dancing').

Fabulous Medal Tests Weekend

On 29 and 30 September 2017 we had a fabulous Medal Tests weekend: a mixture of Medal Tests, Workshops, private lessons, and Social Dance evening. Joan Martin, our examiner, was just amazing and gave us so much of her time during her stay. She was so wonderful to everyone and having a friendly examiner makes all the difference when it comes to nerves! I am so proud of all those who took their tests. You all worked so hard and you all danced so well just when it mattered on the Big Day.
