All of our classes run on a drop-in basis so it is not possible to book in advance. We recommend that you arrive about 10 mins before the start of your class. This will give you enough time to either pay your membership fee or show your membership card at reception and make your way to the correct studio.
Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in. It is important to keep in mind that in some genres of dance e.g ballet to wear clothes that allow the teacher to see the body so that correction to your form may be made.
