FAQs

When are your classes?

We offer a mix of  evening and weekend classes that run all year round. You can view specific class times on our timetable.

 

Where are classes held?

We are located on Level 1, 83 Petrie Plaza in the Canberra City. More information about the studio can be found here.

Tap classes are held off-site at Kmotion Latin Dance Studio.

 

Do you cater for people who have never danced before?

Absolutely! We have specifically created Dance Foundations as a class for those who have never danced before. You'll find more information on our Class Descriptions and Class Levels page.

 

Can I watch a class?

For the safety, security and comfort of all students, you must participate to attend a class.

 

Do you offer a trial?

Yes. We offer an UNLIMITED Trial Pass for first-time visitors that gives you UNLIMITED access to ALL our drop-in classes for only $49!

 

How much does a class cost after my trial?

Our class costs and policies for payments and refunds can be found on the Pricing page.

Please note, we are a cashless studio and payment can be made by Visa or Mastercard only.

 

How do I register and pay for class?

Online - we are a paperless studio! You can register and sign up for class via our timetable, MindBody online store or the MindBody app.

Please see our Studio Policies for full details on registering and signing up.

 

How long do classes go for?

Class duration ranges from 60 to 90 minutes.

 

Do I have to attend class regularly?

No. Most of our classes are drop-in; this mean you can attend class as often (or as little) as you like, whenever you are able.

However, if you have dance goals you would like to meet or are serious about improving your art, then regular (as possible) attendance is encouraged for best results.

 

How many people can attend a class?

Our class sizes are strictly capped at 20 people per class.

 

Should I book my place in class beforehand?

Yes. By booking ahead, you are are securing your spot in class. It is especially a good idea idea for some of our classes that can book out one to two weeks in advance!

We require a minimum of three people for a class to run, and class bookings indicate to us whether a class is able to go ahead.

Booking ahead also gives you the added benefit of receiving email notification about class changes. If a class is cancelled, you'll get an email and save yourself a trip to the studio!

 

I've reserved a spot in class, but now I can't attend. Can I cancel or reschedule my booking?

Please see our Cancellation / No Show policy for more information.

 

The class I want to attend is 'Waitlist Only'. What does this mean?

If a class is 'Waitlist Only', it means the class is fully booked. However, you can put your name down on the wait list by clicking on the 'Sign Up' button.

Our system requires your account to have a current Studio Pass in order to be put on a wait list. This allows our system to automatically deduct a class from your account if you are moved from the wait list onto the class list.

When someone on the class list cancels their booking, our system automatically moves the next person from the wait list onto the class list. You will then receive an email notification to let you know you are on the class list.

 

What if it doesn't say 'Waitlist Only' and there is no 'Sign Up' button?

Unfortunately, this means the class and/or wait list is full. First in, first served!

 

Should I arrive early?

Yes, especially if you are paying for your Studio Pass on arrival. By arriving 10-15 minutes early, you will help your teacher start the class on time.

 

What are the public transport and parking options?

You'll find this information, and more, on our studio page.

 

What clothes and shoes should I wear?

Choose comfortable clothing that allows you to move easily. Socks or bare feet are generally suitable for most classes; for tap, we recommend shoes with a leather or vinyl sole.

If you decide to invest in a pair of dance shoes, our footwear guide below may help you:

  • Dance Foundations - ballet flats, jazz shoes or socks
  • Ballet - ballet flats, jazz shoes or socks
  • Jazz - jazz shoes or boots, ballet flats, or socks
  • Lyrical - socks, ballet flats, jazz shoes or foot thongs
  • Tap - tap shoes
  • Barre Fitness - socks, ballet flats, jazz shoes or boots, or bare feet.

 

Where can I buy dancewear and dance shoes?

Bloch in the Canberra Centre is the most well known dancewear store in Canberra and the most convenient for our location.

We are passionate about supporting other small, local businesses though and you will find Attitude Australia in Mitchell and Taps Dancewear in Wanniassa are just as able to meet your dancing needs.

 

What else should I bring to class?

Water. Definitely bring water. And if you wish, a hand towel and deodorant.

 

Can I get changed at the studio?

Yes - we have toilets on site.

 

Do you only cater to adults?

Our focus is on adults and classes are generally suitable for participants aged 16 years and older.
