Adult Short Courses

Master the basics and perfect your skills.

Master the basics and perfect your skills with Sydney Dance Company’s introductory courses for adult beginner dancers (16 years+).

Designed specifically if you’ve never danced before or have limited experience, these courses will teach you the foundation skills you need to succeed and get the most from our adult dance classes.


To make sure that you enjoy and get the most from our dance class program, we suggest that you take an Introduction Short Course before you begin attending beginner level classes.

Course fee:

$120 for 4 week course
$225 for 8 week course

A maximum of 30 people in each class ensures individual attention.

Please note, if you miss a class in the course, you can’t retake it or request a credit or refund.

Do I need to be double vaccinated to attend an Adult Short Course? No. As of 11 March 2022, proof of vaccination (or medical exemption) is no longer required to enter the Wharf Studios.

What do I do if I have any of the following symptoms: cough, fever, sore throat, shortness of breath or have been in contact with another person who has recently tested positive for COVID-19?

Please do not come to the Studios. Get tested, wait for a negative result and adhere to any self-isolation guidelines from the NSW Government before you return to the Studios.

Dance classes can involve risk of personal injury. While Sydney Dance Company takes all reasonable care in the conduct of its classes, it accepts no responsibility for injury or loss caused during classes or whilst participants are at or near the dance studio. You are responsible for ensuring that you are physically and medically fit for the class and during the class you must at all times take care of your own personal safety. If an advertised teacher is suddenly unavailable, due to circumstances beyond our control, a replacement teacher with similar attributes and qualifications will be employed.
