We are delighted to announce our first Masterclass with the brilliant Sara McGuiness on 1 December 2018 at the New Unity Hall, Upper Street. We are very lucky to have Sara run an Afro Cuban masterclass for the girls. This is a brilliant opportunity for the girls to learn from a top level professional.
