  • Im worried that Im not going to be able to do it.
    We have a very high success rate for people getting up in their first lesson. We take our time, preak it down in a way that it is easy to process. It is normal to get nervous when you try something new but once you have done it you will realise how fun it is. It is ok. Even if you dont stand up there is always room for progress.....everyone starts somewhere. How do you know if you dont try?
