Cheap Melbourne dance classes: things to know before you go

Offers on dance classes are easy to find with plenty of choice in the city, no matter what type of style you want to learn or brush up on your skills. Find out more about Melbourne dance classes with our answers to your frequently asked questions.

What types of dance classes are there in Melbourne?

Whatever type of dance you specialise in or want to try, it's a fair bet you can find a class nearby that offers it. From a class where your kids can learn ballet to ballroom lessons to prepare for an upcoming dance, there's a wide variety available. Some deals include:

  • Latin dance classes – such as salsa, Merengue and Bachata.
  • Tango – this traditional Argentinian dance, a ballroom classic, is widely taught in and around Melbourne with ten-week courses for beginners.
  • Hip Hop – just one of several types of dance taught at Dance Dynamics in Richmond.

Is dancing good for me?

Yes, dancing can bring huge health benefits. We know dancing is good fun – and signing up for dance classes can be a great way to improve your social life – but it's also seriously beneficial for fitness and wellbeing.

Every form of dance is a type of exercise, providing an excellent all-round cardio workout and helping to increase strength and stamina.

Even a 30-minute dance class can burn calories at about the same rate as going for a jog. Some types of dance provide a more strenuous form of workout than others – a high-tempo style such as Zumba will really get you sweating and increase your heart rate.

Can I take my children to dance classes?

Enrolling children in dance classes is a great idea. Dance classes teach children discipline, improve their fitness and help them make new friends. Try a handful of cheap dance classes, so they can experience different styles, before they find one they love.

Many dance classes cater for children, including these options:

  • Exclusive Beats Boutique. Located in Canterbury, this studio host dance class deals for kids. There's an emphasis on fun, inclusion and encouraging little feet to enjoy the best possible introduction to all sorts of dancing.
  • Dance World Studios. Caters for kids as young as three years old, found between South Melbourne market and St Vincent Gardens.

It's difficult to state with certainty the most popular type of dancing as there are so many different styles. The classics remain popular, with ballet and tap dancing continuing to be among those most widely taught, particularly across children's dance classes in Melbourne. These offer a great introduction to improve balance, rhythm and movement, useful if your children or you wish to try a different type of dancing in the future.

There are many modern styles growing in popularity. Contemporary yoga at Chunky Move caters for beginners up to advanced level, are popular in the city, while hip hop and jazz are other favourites. Pole dancing classes are excellent for improving flexibility and becoming more popular thanks to their health and fitness benefits.
