Ballet provides a technical physical foundation upon which other dance techniques are built. It encourages both discipline and awareness of ‘placement’ and ‘line’. It’s also a fantastic workout! Artistry, musicality and an appreciation for the art form are embedded in the training of this subject.

Don’t worry if you’ve never taken ballet before. We have classes ranging from ‘absolute beginners’ to ‘intermediate’ levels of ability.

Our classes teach a variety of jazz dance techniques, from mainstream modern American jazz to the isolation technique of Matt Mattox. They are a great way to help you develop your all round dance skills, giving you better co-ordination and a spontaneous response to rhythm.

Our Contemporary class is a general class for all levels. We begin the class with a warm up and move on to various exercises to strengthen and explore your range of motion and movement. The class finishes with a ‘phrase of dance’ which the class work on for a number of weeks. The class is a way to improve your coordination, fitness and use of breath while dancing through the space, a way to discover new ways of moving and, above all, having fun with dance.
Wear comfortable clothes so that you feel free to move. Socks, foot thongs or bare feet are recommended. Come and give it a try!

Street Dance is the umbrella term for styles that were created outside of dance studios such as Breakdancing/B-Boying, Popping, Locking, House and Hip Hop Dance. In our Street Dance classes, you will learn the techniques and foundation of these styles as well as how to freestyle.
Commercial dance is a choreography based style used predominantly by music artists for their videos, tours and TV Appearances. The focus is on versatility, performance, dynamics and strength in these classes.

This proven exercise system teaches core strength, flexibility and fluidity. Focusing on breath, posture and alignment.

Zumba Fitness is a Latin-inspired cardio-dance workout that uses music and choreographed steps to form a fitness party atmosphere. While many of the types of dance and music featured in the program are Latin American inspired, classes can also contain everything from jazz to African beats to country to hip-hop and pop.
Bodywork adult classes have been a central part of my life for 30 years, providing me with fitness, fun and friendships. I’m not really a dancer, but I love the general workouts. Orsi is the best Zumba teacher ever, and Emma’s Pilates classes are brilliant. Wouldn’t be without any of it!

The adult Tap class at Bodywork this past year has been great and has attracted both beginners and more accomplished people of all ages. Hope, our teacher, has been able to tailor the classes to suit everyone, giving us all a chance to learn steps and routines at our own pace. Her enthusiasm and skill at teaching has been enjoyed by us all. I hope that the class will grow in popularity.

Street dance at Bodywork is such fun! It’s is all in one: a dance lesson and also good workout session. Since I have been learning with Bodywork, my technique has improved a lot and now I am able to do some foundation moves. In terms of choreography, thanks to Manny, our teacher, my class learnt different types of street dance from popping, locking, house, and even Michael Jackson style routines. If you want to improve your technique, do some great workout sessions and learn some fun choreography with a bunch of nice people, then Bodywork is the place for you. I definitely want to carry on. Join us!
