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!

Mark will introduce you to the fundamentals of Argentine Tango, tango history and urban legends. The lessons will teach you how to walk the tango and how to turn, which is technically all you need in order to dance. There will be some anxious moments no doubt and some good laughs too.
