Summer is on the horizon, and it's time to pick your dance moves for the season! This term, you can choose from a range of exciting new and existing courses, drop-ins and workshops. So secure your place on your favourite classes and 'Turn It Up' with us!
The Summer Term brochure is themed around Commercial Jazz and you can style it up in these fresh, modern jazz classes.
Drop in to Morning Yoga, led by Carolina Ravaioli, to take some time to prepare for the week ahead or get your weekend started with Pirita Tuisku in her Reggaeton drop-in on Friday evenings. You asked and we listened: Ballet Floor Barre, shared between Vincent Hantam and Giulia Montalbano, is now part of our weekly class programme on Thursdays.
We also have a jam-packed workshop programme: You can continue developing your Ballroom & Latin skills in our Practice Sessions. Then, Chilean Voguer Kevin Guerrero will also be giving us a taste of the expressive and empowering world of Vogue Fem, while the charming Chris Stuart-Wilson (now of BBC fame!) brings ABBA moves to Dance Base!
Our Dance, Music Making and Animation Summer School is back to keep young dancers (aged 7–12), busy during their holidays. Teens, aged 13–19, can develop their contemporary and jazz technique with Katie Miller and Jade Smith in the Summer Dance Intensive.
Last but not least – The Edinburgh Summer Sessions at Dance Base are back! Don’t miss out on your chance to sign up for these week-long courses in styles ranging from ballet and yoga to jazz and hip hop. Of course, there are many more classes to choose from!
Are you unsure which dance style and level is right for you? You can Try Before You Buy! During the first two weeks of term, you can go to any dance class, have a nosey and decide which class to continue with, once you've had a try. (This is subject to availability and you need to arrive at reception half an hour before the trial class begins.)
