“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.”  Wayne Dyer

“I’ve only been here once but I will definitely be coming back. This studio was very welcoming and they have a great array of classes to take” Mindi M

I haven’t done a dance class since the early 90′s so I had no idea what to expect, worried that I might be intimidated by a plethora of lithe dancers in designer dance wear.

I couldn’t have been more wrong. The studio itself was fun, clean and bright, and all the staff welcoming. The class was a great mix of all types of people from all walks of life, the music was great and I had an absolute ball. I’d definitely recommend Danceworks as a fun alternative to getting fit!” Sarah L

Advice for beginners dancers (more to read in our FAQ section)

1) How to choose the right class?
We offer a very wide variety of dance and fitness styles and levels at Danceworks and it can be hard to know what to try. When choosing a class consider these points:– What are my goals (fitness, learn new skills, fun)?– What level is appropriate for me? – What days and times work into my schedule?Then consult the Classes – Daily Schedule for class descriptions, levels and current class times. We are very happy to provide assistance. You can always ask one of our helpful and knowledgeable Reception staff, and you can book an appointment for a free personal consultation. You can read more about our classes and teachers on this page.

2) What to wear during the class?
There is no specific dress code. If you’re trying a class for the first time, wear something comfortable and loose fitting you can move freely in. Feel free to ring or call in to ask Danceworks staff if you’re not sure what to wear – or if you have any other questions.3) What will happen on your first visit?
When you visit Danceworks for the first time, you will be registered into our system at our Reception. You will be issued a ‘drop-in’ Membership Card which will be swiped-in to ensure a quick check-in for future visits. Daily membership fees are paid at Reception. If it is your first visit and it’s in a peak time, please allow an extra 10 minutes for registration.4) Relax and Enjoy!
