Welcome to the Dance Workshop

For over 30 years, Dance Workshop has provided dance classes for adult / mature age students.

Our students range in age from 18-80 years!

It is where those that love dance can come together in a safe non-judgemental, non-competitive environment and enjoy dance whether as an absolute beginner, or a seasoned dancer.

What we do

We provide dance classes in a wide variety of non-partner dance styles including; Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Dancehall, Stilettos, Flamenco, Bollywood, and more. We have a timetable of casual drop-in classes for a variety of levels from Beginners to Advanced dancers in various styles. Dancers are welcome to join these classes at any time without any long term commitment.

We also have 6-week dance courses specifically designed for the complete novice adult student. These 6-week Basics courses are in the following styles: Tap, Jazz/Dance, Ballet, Hip Hop, and when we have sufficient interest, Flamenco.

From time to time we offer repertoire workshops, and workshops taught by international and eastern states guest teachers. Students also have the opportunity to participate in our annual performance showcase in a state of the art theatre before a live (and loving) audience.

We also provide wedding choreographic services, if you need a bespoke wedding dance or flash mob, or just want to learn a few basic steps to give you a little bit of confidence on the dance floor we can help. We are also known for doing pretty awesome proposal flashmobs if you’re planning on asking the big questions.

Inspiring Perth to Dance!

Tap

We want to provide a safe, non-competitive, non-judgemental space for adult dance students to learn dance in properly planned and executed dance classes.

We don’t do “dance inspired” aerobics, and we don’t provide exercise classes just for the sake of moving. Our teachers are focussed on quality dance tuition covering technique, and performance, all while having fun at the same time.

We are Perth’s only dance studio that caters exclusively to adult students. Our teachers, understand that adults learn and process information differently to each other and to children, classes are constructed with this in mind. In the same way, other students in the class are in the same boat as you, or at least have been at some stage. So everyone, teachers and students alike understand that each person is participating in a way that is comfortable for them.

We know that no other dance studio provides adult dance classes the way we do.
