These classes are designed to introduce participants to two of South Africa’s most cherished social dances, Sokkie and the Two Step, both of which are integral to Afrikaans culture and community gatherings.

Sokkie is a popular dance style characterized by its relaxed, flowing movements that are easy to learn and enjoyable to perform.

The simplicity of its steps allows for creative expression and a joyful dance experience, making it a favorite at social events, weddings, and parties. The music’s upbeat tempo and catchy rhythms ensure that dancers remain engaged and energized throughout the class.

The Two Step is a dynamic partner dance that involves rhythmic steps and smooth turns, combining elements of traditional folk dance with modern influences. This dance emphasizes coordination, timing, and connection between partners, making it an excellent way to build trust and communication skills. The Two Step is known for its versatility and can be danced to a variety of music styles, from traditional Afrikaans tunes to contemporary hits. These classes focus on technique, musicality, and the joy of dancing together, ensuring a rewarding experience for all participants.

Alissa Steyl

Although I am the owner of the dance studio and extensively involved in the admin side I love to teach my Latin & Ballroom, Lindy Hop & Wedding lessons. 
I have been teaching since 2007 part-time while finishing my studies for my certificate in Graphic Design and BComm in Marketing Management. Although I performed in school productions and did some Irish dancing I had no previous experience in partner dancing (that means you can also start after high school!)
I am trained in both American/Social and International style for Latin & Ballroom and was mentored by Dave Campbell.
Although I love dancing, I am a teacher at heart. I love sharing knowledge and finding new ways to teach my students.
