Richard Marcel, Strictly Come Dancing choreographer and Salsa star is joining Greenwich Dance to teach the ever-popular Salsa classes at the Borough Hall on Thursday evenings.

Richard has worked with stars like Madonna, Kylie Minogue, George Michael, Diana Ross and Tom Jones and is the Salsa choreographer for Strictly Come Dancing and So You Think You Can Dance. He has just finished choreographing the new British Salsa dance feature movie, Cuban Fury.

Olympic choreographer and Greenwich Dance Associate Artist Temujin Gill also returns to teach 1930s jive dance Lindy Hop. He was a co-choreographer of the Olympic Opening Ceremony NHS sequence Swing Out Sisters, featuring 352 beds and 600 dancing staff.

Among the courses on offer this autumn are Ballet, Ballroom and Tango. With a strong emphasis on physical fitness as well as fun there is also Pilates, Dancing Fit and Zumba. The seven week term runs from 10 September to 25 October and booking in advance is required.

There is no need to book for the evening drop in classes, which include Yoga, Egyptian Belly Dance, Contemporary and Flamenco.

For the over 60s there are Dance Classes for Older People at Serica Court retirement home in Greenwich, and Dancing to the Music of Time at Greenwich Dance.

On Friday afternoons there are creative dance classes for Babies, Toddlers and Pre-School children. There are also Hip Hop classes on Saturdays for children and young people.

Greenwich Dance also runs a series of Professional Classes led by professional dancers and choreographers, who are in residence for a week to work with recent graduates and early career dance artists.
