Friday Night Social - On hold until further notice (as at 7th July 2020) - replaced by Private Lessons (currently online)

Everyone is welcome at the Friday Night Social. There is some instruction to help the Beginners and we treat this event as our weekly practice session. It's also our weekly party which is why we have wine! Entry is $15 or $12 concession with ID.

Dances covered:  Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Cha Cha Cha, Samba, Salsa, Rumba, Jive or Rock n Roll, Progressive dances, New Vogue and Viennese Waltz among others..

Exam preparation.
We hold a dance party around this event and bring in an outside judge for this formal exam night and dance party.  The dances covered will depend on your level and what you're aiming for, such as Latin, Ballroom or New Vogue dances and or a combination of all three styles is also accepted.  You can start exams at a Social Level which is the easiest, then move up to a higher level dependant on your needs and wants.  Going for personal goals is a great way to improve.  This is mostly done via private lessons.
Please enquire with Anny.  

Competition preparation.

Melbourne's Midsumma Festival has a same-sex dance competition which has been running annually for over 20 years, so there's plenty of opportunity to enter an event or two, locally.  There are also other same-sex dancing events held around Australia and New Zealand that you could train for.  These are usually prepared for with private lessons. Please enquire with Anny if you're interested.


Performance opportunities are available for those interested at our regular Social Nights, usually held on a Saturday night at our Footscray space. Performances are also part of our regular ‘8 Week Challenges’ available to all students in specified dances for each challenge, either via group class or by private lesson. Please enquire, for more information.


I learned ballroom dancing at boarding school and have done country partner dancing and line dancing for many years. I decided I wanted to learn some latin dances and asked Anny if I could have private lessons. I consider myself lucky she had a vacancy coming up and was able to fit me in. I have been very impressed with the way Anny teaches. Over the years I have experienced dance teachers both here and in the USA and usually they only teach the steps with little or no emphasis on technique. Anny puts a lot of emphasis on technique and that is very important. If you know the correct technique you enjoy your dancing more and it looks so much better! I highly recommend Queer As Foxtrot as a place to learn dancing and to meet some new friends!
