  • "I joined the Rio Rhythmics dance community with my parents and brother and after the first lesson I have to say all my family was hooked. Before joining Rio, I danced ballet for 17yrs years and was looking for a way to continue my enjoyment of dancing. I have certainly found this with Rio because they offer so many dance styles and host great social dance parties every weekend that are so much fun. The teachers are always upbeat, encouraging and inspiring. Everyone is warm and fun to be around and I have made so many new friends. It’s definitely a place where the community can come together and enjoy dancing". Sarah Evans

  • "I've just returned from the most amazing 8 week trip of a lifetime of non-stop dancing across Brasil and Cuba, where many people told me I danced like a local. For me this journey really started 6 years ago when I started my foundation course with Rio Rhythmics learning to dance Samba, Zouk and Salsa and I am so thankful to them for such a fantastic start. I think learning so many different styles in the Foundation Course from the very beginning has been a great advantage to me as a dancer. I found my confidence grew more quickly as it allowed me to find the different styles which best suited me. It also taught me perseverance which I am grateful for as I struggled with Zouk at first and now it is one of my favourite styles. The course made me a more versatile dancer and I love bringing what I know of the different genres across to create my own style. I also love knowing no matter where I go in the world I can experience the joy that is dancing and meet amazing locals because there will be a style of dancing I know and love. Kara Coughlin
