Lessons and Pricing

During university term times, our lessons run every Monday and Wednesday evenings and cater to dancers at all different levels. For more details about our lesson structure for the coming term, please see our instagram and our timetable page. 


Monday lessons are run by our esteemed professional dance teacher Joel Chapman. Joel has competed in the professional ballroom and latin circuit and has been teaching at the University of York for the past ten years. 

Wednesday lessons are taught by our student teacher Hannah Grunwerg who has been an integral member of YBLS throughout her time at the university.  

We also run open practice sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday evening as well as Saturday mornings.


Our quality to price ratio is fantastic! We set our prices to make them affordable for you and to ensure that you are getting the best value for money. Annual membership is £20 (which includes the University York Sport Gold Tier membership).

On Monday 25th September and Wednesday 27th September, we will be holding Taster sessions so you cam come and give it a go. No membership is needed for your first lesson. The price will be £2 and buy one get one free if you bring your friend a long.  No previous experience is necessary and you don't need to bring anyone with you.

Pricing per lesson:

Beginner: £5

Novice: £5

If you attend both: £8 on the same day


We welcome everyone from students to local residents, beginners to advanced dancers and endeavour to tailor our lessons to the feedback we receive.

On behalf of the YBLS committee, we cannot wait to see you at our lessons! If there is anything we have missed do not hesitate to contact us via email or social media.
