Your health and safety is always our priority.
Following recent government advice we have sadly decided to close our London dance studio for the foreseeable future.
However we all still want to enjoy dance with you so we are pleased to announce the launch of our online dance programme where we can Dance At Home together until we can all safely meet together face to face.
Look out for our timetable of classes, events, fun activities to keep us healthy and motivated.
New events will be announced here and on our Facebook page.
Stay well, stay safe, keep in touch and dance well!
