I would say, get up early so as not to be late for the class. Once you're there, you'll spend an hour doing dance warm ups and learning lots of new dances from Bollywood to the Charleston to Thriller by Michael Jackson! These are only a few. You get a great sense of being from the class!

This is a fantastic course. There is a variety of dance styles, each of them presented in a fun way. The teacher is very friendly and helpful, and he even manages to teach us some dance technique while still keeping the lesson easy going. We have lots of laughs and great fun in a really supportive environment. It's a wonderful way to start the day!

Early morning dance provides me with a good start to the day as it energises me before work. I like the combination of a regular warm-up with the wide variety of dance routine styles done over a term.
