Learning to dance can not be achieved in just one lesson so to make it cheaper for participants we have dance passes.
Dance passes are a card, one circle is crossed off every time you attend a class. The pass is valid for a full year so you don’t loose your money if you miss classes. Give into Dance Passes’s can be used in any of our Five adult weekly classes we run throughout the year, valid for a full year from purchasing date.
It is much cheaper to pay for multiple classes than to pay for one class on the door. However the Dance Passes are offered at a discount price and payment is non refundable.
WHAT IS THE AGE RANGE?
No, you are not too old! Give into Dance adult classes have a wide variety of participants that attend on a weekly basis. From young people in sixth form to parents and professionals. The average age range of the participants is around 20-40 years. However we have younger and older, we are very proud of our diversity.
Please note: Contemporary Fusion, Urban Lyrical and Dancehall are mixed youth & adult classes.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Anything you can move in, loose comfortable clothing e.g T-shirt/vest/tracksuit bottoms/leggings etc.
Bare feet for Contemporary Fusion and trainers for Street Dance, Dancehall and Urban Lyrical.
Bring water with you to every dance class.
