TEAM BUILDING/CORPORATE FUNCTIONS
Cherry Dance comes to your company/ venue to teach a group class to your employees. No partners required but you will need a fairly even male:female ratio. The men stand on one side and learn their steps and the women stand opposite them and learn theirs. Once everyone has an idea of what is required of them they are told to grab a partner and put those moves to practice. We keep building up the steps and changing partners throughout this session until everyone is happy, comfortable and confident on the dance floor and in the company of each other. These sessions are very successful “ice-breakers” and a good way to kick-off an evening or weekend.
Line dancing is a great, fun way to get your feet moving, even without a partner. With its origins in good old country music, Line Dancing involves a set choreographed steps in a specified pattern, danced to some really funky tunes. It is a great way to increase your dance abilities in regards to picking up different dance steps and moves as well as working inside and outside of a rhythm. More than that, it is also hoots of fun!
Make sure you wear comfortable clothing you can move in like jeans and t- shirt. Wear shoes that do not stick. You would want to move as freely as possible because there’s a lot of twists and turns. You’ll be dancing to an array of wonderful tracks such as Bootscoopin Boogie, Cotton Eye Joe, Honey I’m Good, Achy Breaky Heart, Footloose, Samba Line Dance, Mambo Line Dance and many many more!
So get your cowboy boots and get yourself moving and grooving!

What our Clients say...
Mandy’s style of teaching strikes a great balance between strict focus on steps and technique, and having a fun experience. No matter how difficult a step may seem, you will find your feet eventually obeying Mandy’s instruction and will have had a good laugh in the process. Mandy is also very open to ideas from students and will choreograph something specifically for you, which to me is a genuinely special Cherry Dance touch.
Hannes Jooste - October 2016
Four years ago I had no idea how to dance or what I was in for when I signed up for Mandy’s class. As soon as I started I loved how fun and easy it really was - not to say that dancing is easy, but Mandy made it so simple and enjoyable. It wasn’t just the type of the dance or the specific steps she was teaching, it was the way Mandy made you feel about dancing and about yourself...
