If you would prefer to come to your first dance class as an adult with a sticker on your chest that says “I have no idea what I’m doing”, “I really want to dance but i am nervous” or “I am so uncoordinated it’s dangerous please give me space” ...… this is the perfect class for you.

It's Beginner's Club - Paekākāriki Edition!

A 45 minute dance cardio class where you'll leave having learnt about a minutes worth of choreography to a routine inspired by a film, music video or musical. Every class is different and a surprise to everyone, so you don't need to worry about feeling 'behind'. In our classes, there are no mistakes – only moments.

Wear whatever you're comfortable moving and sweating in – don't forget a water bottle!
