Dance classes for mature adults
You may grow older in years, but dance classes can help you keep feeling young in body & mind!
Choose from 4 types of classes designed for mature adults
dance mix, ballet, jazz or tap
Our mature classes are a more low impact class ideal for adults aged over 50 or anyone wanting to ease into dance after a period of inactivity, giving birth or having surgery, or who finds the regular classe too hard on their joints.
A fantastic introduction to dance for someone who’s not sure what dance style they’d like to learn. Not really a technique class, it’s more about having fun and moving, inspired by a mix of dance styles, including jazz, contemporary, a smidge of ballet, and a sprinkling of Latin, folk and other influences.

- 6pm Tuesdays in Seacliff
An low impact version of the fun and energy of jazz dance technique, in a class with other mature adults, set to an energetic soundtrack that includes well known pop music, classic show tunes, and more.
- 6.15pm Mondays in Henley Beach
A low impact version of the rhythm and percussion of tap dance technique, without as many hops and jumps so it’s easy on your ankles and knees, set to a diverse soundtrack that includes the latest pop music, as well as classic tap tunes, and even the music of your own feet.
