New dancers

Unsure of which class you’d like to take? Pay for the first one then try them all for a whole week! See the admin staff about 10 to 15 minutes before class to sign up then show the receipt for any other class for the following week. Ask our lovely admins for further details. And… in addition to a physical workout, dance is an excellent exercise in mental well-being. Check out our FAQs and Notes for First-Timers.
