It’s time to strap on your dancing shoes and put your best foot forward, because The Hills District has a range of lessons for the young and young-at-heart. From the foxtrot to salsa, latin dancing and more, there no shortage of classes to suit any level of ability (or any age).

Whether you want to be footloose and fancy-free, or just be prepared for a special occasion, we’ve got you covered. Because without dance, what’s the pointe?     

From tiny-tots to retirees

Everyone has some level of rhythm, so more often than not it’s simply about learning how to put it to good use.  

For the little ones there is ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary and hip-hop, catering to those just beginning to understand how to move their bodies and follow a beat. At Instyle Performing Arts, they provide classes for students aged 3 years to adults, and offer a free first lesson for anyone not sure about signing up for a full term.  

You know what they say, it takes two to tango and adult dance studio Move With Me in Castle Hill covers practically every kind of technique, from ballroom to the more upbeat rhythm of salsa dancing, and a nightclub social-style – like rock ‘n’ roll and the hustle. And there’s no need to worry about not having any dance experience, as almost every studio provides beginner classes – so you can learn alongside people at the same stage as you.

Perfect for socialising

While many people new to dancing may be apprehensive about having others watch them, it can be a very social activity, and when everyone is concentrating on their own feet, there is no one standing on the sidelines anyway!

Arthur Murray Dance Studios in Castle Hill offers lessons specifically for singles wanting to learn to dance, where you get one-on-one sessions with a core instructor, but also meet-and-greet with others at your level in weekly group classes. The studio also holds twice-monthly Friday night socials, where you can practice your moves in a real club-like environment. This space caters solely to adults, and there is even espresso coffee and cold drinks on tap.  

Of course couples are welcome too, where they can mingle with other people who enjoy dancing just as much as they do. Everyone has to start somewhere, and no one understands that more than those who go along to the classes.

And once confidence levels have risen, there is always an opportunity to take it to the next step. Many dance studios, like Hills Adult Dance, provide annual performances that all students are able to work towards, and be a part of.     

Any occasion will do

There’s no need to have a specific ‘reason’ to want to learn to dance, because there are plenty of benefits that come from regular lessons. From improving confidence, coordination and body posture – not to mention being a great form of overall fitness.

Dancing doesn’t require any expensive equipment, and it’s very much about enjoying yourself. One of the best things about dance is that there are so many different styles to choose from, that it’s almost guaranteed you’ll find one that you really feel in tune with, and perhaps ones you have never even heard of!

But of course every so often there comes a time when knowing how to dance comes in handy, like when you’re father or mother of the bride, or perhaps the soon-to-be-married couple. Both Move With Me  and Arthur Murray dance studios offer private and group wedding dance lessons for anyone looking to add something a little bit extra to their special day.

So, if you’re ready to reignite a childhood pastime, or simply learn something new, dancing is the perfect choice. And with a range of classes and studios available, the whole family could get on board and have a rockin’ good time together.

So you think you can’t dance… Why not learn in The Hills District?
