Our Beginners classes 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.
Do you prefer to dance like nobody’s watching only when nobody is watching? Did you love to dance as a child but haven’t danced since? Do you dance at parties or in front of your bedroom mirror but have never been to a class? Would you love to come to a class but worry about being surrounded by dancers with much more experience?
If in doubt, DANCE IT OUT! If any of the above apply, this class is for YOU!
Try out our Beginners classes in the comfort of a small, friendly in-person group or in the comfort of your own home.
Beginners Hip Hop
This class will introduce you to the basics of hip hop dance and allow you to explore and express the style in a comfortable environment.
Full of grooves, musicality and choreography which will give you a great insight to this style of dance!
