Why 5 weeks?
Because summer time often means summer holidays, woohoo! Our 10-week courses have their own little holiday during July-August, and our 5-week courses shimmy in from stage left to work their summer season 🙂 These shorter courses offer a flexible way to keep dancing during the holiday season… join us in July, August – or both!

What to wear
Comfortable clothing that you can move and stretch in!
- a short or long top
- barefoot / anti-slip socks / flexible sole slipper

Don’t have a coinbelt? We sell some in classes, or you can simply bring a winter scarf to wrap around your hips. Some students don’t wear a scarf nor a belt so don’t worry if you prefer to opt out!
