50 Moves will be delivered as a Hybrid class both via Zoom and in-person. This page is for anyone wanting to attend via Zoom. Please visit our class timetable if you would like to attend in-person.
With a focus on contemporary dance, these classes are for people aged 50 and over who are interested in dance, keeping fit and socialising with a great group of people.
The class uses taught exercises to encourage increased mobility, balance and fitness, as well as promoting memory within movement, by building on sequences to create dance works for performance (for those who wish to perform at one of our regular events).
This class is led by Jennie Hale and is subsidised by MDI as part of our Dance for Health programme.
We have a number of options:
Monthly Membership: For class regulars who want their payments automated on a rolling basis. Monthly Membership also provides online access to previous classes on-demand. £15
6-Class Pass: For regulars wanting a little flexibility. Your class pass can be redeemed against any 6 50 Moves classes in the calendar. £22
Single Class: For newcomers wanting to give the class a try or those wanting the freedom of booking one class at a time. £4
50 Moves & Open Level Tap: As many of our 50 Moves participants also attend Open Level Tap, we’ve created a combined single class pass (£7.50), 6-class pass (£42.50) and a combined monthly membership (£28)

Practicing at Home
Please make sure you have plenty of space to practice safely and comfortably. Take a rest or a water break any time you need one. If you are practicing yoga or pilates please back out of any postures that bring you pain or discomfort, take a rest and come back to the class when you are ready. Your teacher will give you any additional instructions or advice at the start of your Zoom.
We have new processes and measures in place to keep you safe. Please read our Studio Guidelines before booking.
We're based at 24 Hope Street, with Studio 1 on the Ground Floor, and Studio 2 on the first floor. There is an accessible toilet on the ground floor.
What to Wear
Leggings and t-shirts or other comfortable clothes are perfect for most classes. Some classes recommend specific dance shoes, but otherwise bare feet is fine. Check with us in advance if you are unsure.
Payments & Pricing
Studio classes are run by MDI and some are subsidised through our charitable funding.
Some classes run right through term breaks, others take time out. Please check the website to find out when your class is running.
