Getting down at the clubs may not be an option right now, but nothing’s stopping you from getting your groove on at dance studios all across Singapore. Simply look forward to busting a move at these five awesome dance studios, offering lessons on hip-hop, street jazz, salsa and more.
Those who enjoy hip-hop, dancehall and street jazz open classes should pay Converge Studios a visit. Conveniently located in the CBD, working professionals can easily wind down with Level 1 classes that cover basic techniques and simple choreography. A single class will only set you back $15, while a 5 Class Package that’s valid for six months will cost you $60. Keep up with the dance studio by giving their Instagram page a follow.
Founded in 2008, Danz People is all about making the arts accessible to folks from all walks of life. With K-pop, contemporary and lyrical jazz classes offered at its Marina Square Shopping Mall locale, participants can easily book a session via their website before heading down to throw shapes on the dance floor. Absolute beginners may want to give their eight-week introductory courses a shot, to learn the foundations of a particular dance genre at a manageable pace. It also allows attendees to receive more advice and attention than regular open classes.
To be schooled in the sensual nature of social dances such as salsa and bachata, one only needs to head to En Motion Dance School, found within Cineleisure Orchard. As Singapore’s premier street Latin dance school, En Motion is able to provide training and experience for beginners and seasoned dancers to accurately execute smooth and sassy moves. All participants are in good hands here as its pool of instructors are award winners in the global Latin dance scene.
A homegrown dance company beloved by local street dancers, O School easily puts the fun in funk. Their Soul Waack classes are probably the most popular series around, along with street jazz and hip-hop lessons. Dancers hoping to explore movement on their own time can also opt for their online dance classes aka Dance Bytes; video tutorials can be accessed on a rental basis.
Complete cardiovascular workouts which also build strength and flexibility when attempting pole dance lessons at Slap, Singapore’s leading pole and aerial dance studio. Not sure if you’re actually up for the challenge? Feel free to try an introductory class suitable for first-timers and learn a couple of tricks before finishing up with a sexy, sexy routine. Introductory pole classes are only $15 a pop, and you can even bring your closest female friends along for the ride.
