10. Can I pay at the door?

Unfortunately, we work with a strict online policy to monitor numbers and attendees in classes. You can sign up in advance and pay as you go. 

 

11. What level am I?

Beginners is for you if you are just starting out, but also if you enjoy a relaxed and slower-paced class. Don't feel like you must jump up in levels super quick. Being a beginner is great as you are learning technique, confidence and picking up choreography without having to unlearn bad habits. Enjoy the challenge and don't compare your journey, we are here to help and are super patient, but we will always want to push you so don't be scared by the crazy moves and floor work - we got you! 

Open level is a chance to push your foundation skills as the class will move at a faster pace but ultimately, we will push you in whichever class you pick. We will have a mixture of Pro's and training dancers along with students who are killing it in classes and want to advance their skills, don't be afraid of joining though, the vibe is amazing, and everyone pushes each other! 

Int / Adv is for those who want to work on their artistry and perfect their skills. It's a perfect way to meet and train with industry professionals in afrodance and have a community of dancers on the same path. The line ups and guest teachers will often have major dance credits and have done incredible things within the industry, please do not miss the opportunity to train with these choreographers. 

 

12. Can I pay as I go or join when I want?

Yes, you can sign up for literally whatever you want and at your own pace. We have just launched single-class passes for you to choose exactly what suits you per month but also if you prefer to dip in and out when things are busy, just sign up for whichever class you want without any membership or extra fees.

 

13. Can I transfer my ticket to the following week if I can’t make it?

We generally need 1-2 days’ notice for attendees who can’t make it to class and unfortunately you cannot transfer your ticket to future classes, however, you’re more than welcome to resell your ticket or request for a refund.
