Dancing is back! Covid restrictions have now lifted and (with some guidelines ) we are free to run classes, workshops, lessons and socials. It's been a long haul and we really appreciate everyone's patience over this challenging time. Please see the bottom of this page, 'What's on' or phone for details. Following our excellent last exam results we will be preparing dancers for the next medal day (date to be announced). Big thanks to everyone who helps at the classes and dances including Jill, Kate and Ronnie for great singing, Janine and Cordelia, Isobel, Andrea, Caulene, Ronnie, Tony and others for your support at all events.

About NewLifeDance

For You

At NewLifeDance we are passionate about our dancing but know that people joining are often a bit nervous about taking those first steps, so we gently take you from no prior knowledge to becoming a very competent dancer with improved posture, flexibility and confidence. NewLifeDance do this through classes, workshops, social dances, private lessons and special events.
Dancing gives you confidence, improves your health and social life. It can be very addictive.

Our Philosophy

Although NewLifeDance is a social Dance Club, we are somewhat different to others in that our main aim is to improve people’s lives and the way we do that is through dance.
We love you to come to our events, but more than that we want our classes, workshops and events to be uplifting and improve your life.

Fitness

Dancing is a fabulous way to improve your fitness, meet new people and learn a new and sociable skill. It will enhance your posture and improve your co-ordination to say nothing of boosting your memory and having fun when going to any occasion involving dancing.. and some that don’t!

Guidance

NewLifeDance can gently take you from absolute basics to competent dancer and beyond at a pace to suit you. Dances include: waltz, quickstep, social foxtrot, slow foxtrot, ballroom tango, viennese waltz, rumba, cha cha, ballroom jive, rock jive, samba, pasodoble along with some Argentine tango, modern jive and salsa. Elaine teaches Chasamba (no partner needed) to improve your fitness even more.

Friendly

Our classes are relaxed and friendly but aimed to give you the very best dancing skills, which we hope you will use anywhere, including our own Monthly social at a great venue. NewLifeDance run weekly classes in Enfield, Winchmore Hill and Millfield House in Edmonton. NewLifeDance are the sole providers of Ballroom and Latin classes for Enfield Council, for which we won a provider of the year award.

Workshops

NewLifeDance regularly run workshops; usually two and a half hours long working on a single dance (for example, waltz or jive) about once a month. See What’s on for the list of workshops, dances and events. Workshops are great to gain the ability to confidently take a dance onto the floor.

These are a just few of the things people have said about our classes: ‘Patient and full of positive encouragement’, ‘Offering personal support every step of the way’, our classes have ‘an atmosphere of friendly, relaxed fun and positivity’.

What our Clients Say

I’ve been coming to Martin and Elaine’s classes and socials for about a year or so. They did a New Year’s Eve Social (2018) which was brilliant. Even if you are single they do various dances to get everyone to join in which is good! The dance classes on a Thursday are now for two hours which is great because they do a beginners and intermediate class. They quite often go to the pub afterwards which makes it another nice social part of the evening. There are also workshops on Saturday afternoons which is good & fits in well with anyone working full time. It’s all about having fun 🙂

Dinah Furner – Jan 2018

They bring so much joy to people of all ages and ability – we are lucky to have them working in Enfield!

Deniz Ombesh

Clear, concise instruction given with patience – personal support every step of the way!

John and Jackie Gibbs
