Since the start of lockdown, we have been working hard to stay connected with you, providing free daily dance classes, taught over Zoom. Then in June, we expanded our programme and began bringing you 5-week blocks of paid online mini-courses, and those turned out to be a big hit, so we continued running them throughout the summer.

We took a little bit of a hiatus in August to plan for a possible return to running classes in our studios in September, but we’ve decided (for now) that we want to continue focusing largely on online classes and to continue planning for a return to our studios later in the year. HOWEVER, we think that Tap classes work very well within the restrictions of social distancing for dance classes, so we’re incredibly excited to offer a Friday evening Tap class as our first in-studio class since March.

Free class continues:
We're still providing a free dance class every week, as Kitchen Ballet continues to run every Monday morning!

A few notes on how it all works:

  • All classes (except for the Friday Tap class) take place on Zoom and you will be emailed a Zoom link before your class is due to start.
  • 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.
  • Drop-in classes will only go ahead if we have a minimum of 5 paid bookings. We reserve the right to cancel a class if it has fewer than 5 bookings 60 minutes prior to its scheduled start time.
  • 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.

You’ve been telling us that you #LoveDanceBase, so if you're looking for ways to support Dance Base in these difficult times, then purchasing a course is a great way to help the organisation to power through. We’ll also have news of other ways you can support Dance Base coming very soon!
