If you are planning on attending with a friend or partner, you are more than welcome to remain with them for the duration of the class – just let your instructor know. Some of our classes are non-partnered (solo) such as Samba.

Do you hold dance events where I can practice?

Yes, we regularly host social dance parties both at our dance studio and venues across Adelaide where you can practice your dance skills and meet other dancers in the community. We highly recommend you follow our Facebook page where we post all our upcoming events.

How long does it take to become a good dancer?

This can vary greatly depending on a number of factors, such as your natural abilities, the amount of time and effort you are willing to dedicate to practice, and the type of dance you are learning. In general, it can take several months to a year or more of consistent practice to develop a solid foundation of skills and become proficient in a particular style of dance

Many of our students have achieved optimal results through a combination of attending at least 2 group classes per week, practicing their moves out socially at our parties and events on a regular basis and booking in private lessons throughout the year.

We offer regular opportunities to learn from interstate and international guest instructors throughout the year at special workshops and bootcamps. Students also have the opportunity to perform at our showcase events twice a year. Performing or competing can bring out the best in some students who love working towards a specific goal. At the end of a performance course, students always feel much more confident and polished.

The most important thing is to have a passion for dance and to enjoy the journey of learning and improving. Consistent practice and a willingness to learn and take constructive criticism can go a long way in improving your dance skills and becoming the dancer you want to be.
