How do you want to dance?

With our in person and online dance opportunities, we aim to create an oasis where you can escape the whirlwind of modern life for a little while, and have some time to yourself, to let go of your worries, slow down your mind, and nurture the part of yourself that loves to dance. 

During the shutdown period due to COVID-19, we’ve kept our community dancing with live streamed and ondemand dance.

From Thursday 11 June, some of our classes will be returning to the studio so you can dance in person.

Online dance classes and more are made possible through Namastream and Zoom.

You Can Choose To:

Take a dance class in the studio, to get away from it all and spend time with other dancers

Take an online dance class from the comfort of your own home, either live streamed or recorded

Sign up for our online introduction to ballet course so you can learn and progress at your own pace.

Choose an online workout, tutorial, or dance to learn from our on demand video library
