Our Teachers

Our branch is fortunate in having a team of highly talented and experienced teachers. Their teaching skills are complemented by their creativity in devising new dances that are enjoyed here in Exeter and by many other groups:

  • Duncan Brown
  • Laura Brown
  • Pauline Beeson
  • Brian Martin
  • Barbara Savill

In addition to the weekly classes, the branch has recently run successful Dancing Achievement Award courses at both Intermediate and Advanced levels, and the RSCDS Basic Teaching Skills course, with participants from across the southwest.

Frequently Asked Questions

No - or at least, not to start with.  Wear shoes that are comfortable and flexible, with a non-slip sole, and not heavy (as you just may tread on your partner's toes).  Later on you can buy the soft ballet pumps or 'ghillies' that most dancers wear - we can help you source them.
