Attendance & Registration

ll dance classes are drop-in, and do not follow a structured curriculum. Participants are welcome to start a class at any point during a term, and should never worry about missing a session. If you are new to a class, please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to complete a short registration form. Information collected during registration is required for health and safety reasons only, and will not be shared externally.

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: 0151 708 8810.

Payments & Pricing

Class prices vary, and some are subsidised through our charitable funding. All classes can be paid for on the day in cash (although some ask for payment for a full term in advance, specified on the listing). A number of classes are also available to book online in advance - a "book now" button is clickable where this is the case.

For all classes run by MDI teachers (Beginners & Open Ballet, Beginners & Open Contemporary, Pro Class) you can purchase a 10 Class Card, which can be used across any combination of these classes. Please note that all 10 classes must be taken within one year of purchase, and cannot be used for MDI summer courses.
