  #silverswans do a Ballroom and Latin Dance Taster! #strictlycomedancing J as in Julia of S & J Talk Ballet ( and other dance techniques) Without a doubt, the range of dance classes held at the Ballet4life bespoke dance studio in Chiswick at St. Peter's Hall, Southfield Road, London W4 1BB, is both original and refreshing!!

If anyone has any comments that will help they will be gratefully received.  Photo copyright Ballet4life and may not be used without permission. This photo is from our other adult pointe clas
