Dance Base @ Home: 13 Jul – 14 Aug
5-week mini courses for £30
Mon – Fri | 13 Jul – 14 Aug
Bookings open Wed 8 Jul, 11.30

Through April and May we offered free daily dance classes, delivered over Zoom. Then in June, we brought you our first programme of 5-week online mini courses, and they turned out to be a huge hit, so now we're offering another block of those courses, running from Monday 13 July to Friday 14 August.

All of the courses you love will continue, and we've added a few extras as well! The extra session of Jazz we added on Monday nights will continue, as will the Ballet Classics course on Friday mornings, but in addition we can now offer you Reggaeton, Evening Ballet, and West African Dance!

We've also extended the Dance Makers lecture course with Agnes Ness to be a 90 minute class each week, as Agnes has so much knowledge to share!

Free classes aren't going away any time soon!
We'll be continuing to provide a free dance class every day, including a selection of classes for families with young children as part of our Feel Like Dancing programme (supported by the Scottish Government's Wellbeing Fund).

A small thank you to NHS workers
Up to three places on each course can be booked for free by NHS workers, on a first-come, first-served basis. To claim, please email a photo of your NHS ID to and specify which class you would like to book. Places are subject to availability.

A few notes on how it all works:

  • All classes take place on Zoom and you will be emailed a Zoom link an hour before your class is due to start
  • Class numbers will be limited to allow teachers greater opportunity to provide feedback
  • Classes are general level unless a level is specified
  • All classes will be moderated by a member of Dance Base staff
  • If a class sells out, we will operate a waiting list of up to 10 people
  • We are not able to offer concession prices for these classes
  • Courses will only go ahead if we have a minimum of 7 paid bookings. We reserve the right to cancel a course if it has fewer than 7 bookings at 17.00 on the day before the first session.
  • Drop-in classes will only be available to book from the day before the class, starting from Mon 13 Jul.
  • We are not able to offer Priority Booking for online classes.
  • We are not able to offer Try Before You Buy or Instalment Payments for these classes
  • The Dance Points programme is temporarily suspended and customers will not be able to accumulate or redeem Dance Points with these online classes
  • For the safeguarding of young people in our online classes, please enter your date of birth in your Dance Base account when booking. Anyone under 18 wishing to attend a class will be sent a permission form which should be completed by a parent or guardian.

We know you #LoveDanceBase and if you're looking for ways to support Dance Base in these difficult times, then the best thing you can do right now is to purchase (and enjoy!) these courses.
