I have always wanted to learn to ballroom dance – I was brought up on Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers films! – and a few years ago decided to go for it at last. A friend recommended Dancing Club LA. He said Linda was a very professional teacher and that classes were hard work, but fun. He was completely right. I was soon hooked and began taking ISTD Medal tests, taught by Richard and then Linda. I have achieved Gold standard with Honours in both Ballroom and Latin and am now working towards Gold Star 1. Linda is meticulous in her attention to detail, (though I admit I still need to be reminded of technique), very supportive and always impresses me with the way she is able to say just the right thing at just the right time to get the best from me. Her teaching really is second to none. I am at my happiest when I am dancing and have no hesitation in recommending Linda and all at Dancing Club LA.
I walked into Linda”s studio the first time as a beginner with the intention of learning the slow foxtrot. Three and a half years later I have mastered 10 dances in Latin and Ballroom and am now working towards my I.S.T.D. Gold Star 1 medal. Linda has created a wonderful atmosphere at Dancing Club L.A. where professionalism and enthusiasm are mixed with patience and knowledge. It is always a great pleasure to attend Linda’s classes and it has given me a passion for dance that has shaped my life in so many positive ways. I cannot recommend highly enough Dancing Club L.A. and an evening in the company of Linda and her staff.
I’ve been taking Ballroom and Latin dance classes at Dancing Club L.A. for over 4 years and I’ve loved every minute of it. Sessions are fun for all as well as being packed with opportunity for the serious dancer to develop their technique. It’s been a great way to keep fit and make friends. The Social Dances are well organised and are suited to all abilities. Highly recommended.
A while ago the dance center that Beryl and I used to frequent had to close. We were then were faced with the dilemma of looking further afield for another suitable venue to satisfy our needs.
Having taken our medals many many years ago we were mainly just looking for somewhere to strut our stuff and to get a little up to date tuition on new variations to improve our dancing.
Fortunately in Dance Club LA we found a place that ticked all of our boxes. We are now able to enjoy a pleasant nights dancing with expert teaching.
At Dance Club LA you can find two spacious and well maintained floors, 1 for practice and 1 for general dancing. With a great atmosphere and superb music, under the direction of Linda, she and her team give some of the finest teaching in the area with plenty of help on the side.
On top of all that there is always a warm welcome from Geoff at the door so it makes all the miles it takes for us to get there worth the hassle.”

“I consider myself extremely fortunate in having Linda as my first and only teacher right up until I started dancing competitively. It is testament to the extremely high standard of Linda’s teaching that within 3 months of starting to compete, and with no previous competitive experience, I became a finalist at the UK Championships in Bournemouth and 4 months after that was a finalist in the British National Championships at Blackpool finishing 5th. Since then I have gone on to make both these finals for the past 3 years, and at the end of 2011 was delighted to be a finalist in the WDC World Ballroom Championships in Paris. I feel that the confidence and knowledge I received from Linda’s teaching enabled me to make this difficult transition into open competition at the highest level.
Linda is a totally dedicated and professional teacher, who shows great patience to all her students whilst maintaining the highest standards. Her expertise and attention to detail is second to none. I cannot think of a better place for anyone to embark upon their dance journey.”
