Newcomer Special Offer

First time visitors to Sydney Dance Company Studios enjoy 3 classes for only $30! Redeem offer at the reception desk. Offer valid for single use only until 31 October 2018.

Never danced before? 

Don’t worry – you’re always welcome at Sydney Dance Company Studios! We have a number of classes for complete beginners for you to choose from. And don’t worry if you attend a beginner’s class and see people who are strong dancers – they have been taking class for a while and just love dancing. After a few classes you too will start to pick up the choreography faster.

Feel free to introduce yourself to the teacher and let them know it’s your first time. Stand somewhere you can see the teacher or follow someone in front of you. If you would like a more focused environment for your first class, then choose one of our popular short course. These 4- or 8-week courses are specifically designed for people new to dance or a particular style, or who just enjoy a slower pace with more direction from the teacher.

Teachers’ Tips:  Improve technique | Pick up choreography | Fitness and flexibility

Trying ballet for the first time? 

Enrol in Introduction to Ballet, our 4-week short course that will help you learn the basics. You can also refine your technique with an Introduction to Ballet 2 short course.

Once you have completed the Ballet short course, you will be ready to attend the Ballet Beginner level drop in classes. Attend as many as possible to keep improving – it’s all about repetition and practice.

Moving up to Ballet Level 1 can take a lot of practice over many months.  So ask your teacher if you’re ready to move up.

Ready to tap?

We have two drop-in beginner tap classes each week where you are welcome to come and try tap for the first time. You don’t need tap shoes straight away – a pair of leather shoes will work for the first few classes, and when you’re ready to get some tap shoes our teachers can advise on the right pair for you! During the year you can also join an Introduction to Tap short course if you’re looking for a smaller classes with more feedback and direction from the teacher.

Get fit!

Attending dance classes is a great way to build fitness, flexibility and core strength. At Sydney Dance Company Studios, we have a number of workout classes which are 1-hour in duration, and are often scheduled before or after work or during a lunch break. These classes are fast and easy-to-follow, with less focus on technique and more focus on working out.

Workout classes: Jazz Workout, Latin Funk Workout

What should I wear?

There is no strict dress code at the studios, simply wear clothes you feel comfortable exercising in.  Each style requires slightly different footwear and clothing – see Dance Styles for more information.

The barcode is unique to each student and identifies you in our system. When you come to take a class, with one swipe we can bring up your account details or sign you into class if you have classes in your account.

Can I purchase classes online?
Yes!  Tickets can be purchased in our online store or by using the Sydney Dance Company App.  Our reception team will look up your details and set you up with a swipe card when you come in for your first class (cards cannot be posted out).  If this is your first class and you don’t yet have a login, the system will prompt you to create one.

What if I am late for class?
Students will not be admitted into class 15 minutes after the class start time. This is to ensure proper warm-up, reduce injuries and maintain class etiquette.

How do I know if a class is right for me?
Each class specifies a level indicating its relative difficulty. If you are concerned about the level, please begin with a lower level class as a warm-up and then try a higher level class the next time, if appropriate.

How long will it take me to progress to a higher level?
This is a difficult question to answer because everyone is different.  If you are feeling competent about the level you are currently undertaking and don’t find it challenging enough, then please have a chat with the teacher after class and ask them if you could potentially try a higher level class.

Do you have change rooms and showers?
Sydney Dance Company has male and female change rooms, hot showers and toilets. We do not have lockers.

What do I do with my belongings during class time?
