Have a look at our Timetable.
What dance styles do you offer?

What do I need to bring?
We recommend that you bring a water bottle as dance can get pretty tiring and heated. We have a tap at the back of the G2 studio to fill up water bottles. Also, feel free to bring a little snack if you get a bit peckish during class.
