Dance classes in London: things to know before you go

Looking to get serious about your salsa or bursting to try some ballet? We answer all the top questions about dance classes in London to help you find your new passion and become a dancing queen (or king).

What is the best way to learn salsa dancing?

Salsa is one of the most popular forms of ballroom dancing and the good news is that all you need is a sprinkling of passion, a sense of rhythm and some expert guidance. Even for those with two left feet, salsa classes are a great way to learn new skills and get fit all in one fun new venture. Sway those hips and move your feet – learning salsa is lots of fun. Follow our tips for the best way to pick up this lively Latin lovers’ dance:

  • Find a good class. Taking contemporary dance classes in London with a qualified teacher is a good place to start. Try The London Academy of Dance in the centre of Canary Wharf for an introduction to traditional salsa.
  • Feel the rhythm. If you’ve left your sense of rhythm at home, dancing in time to the music can be challenging. Try listening to some salsa music in your spare time to pick up the pace and visualise those precise movements.
  • Practice, practice, practice. Make the most of any spare time with your dance partner or other enthusiastic newbies. Practice regularly and you'll soon be able to salsa your way across the floor.

How do I find a good dance studio near me?

Whether you're looking to start belly dancing, pole dancing, or ballroom dancing classes in London, there are a few easy things you can do to find a good local dance studio near you

  • Search online. A quick postcode or area search will bring up dance studios in your local area, but research and read reviews to see what others have to say.
  • Seek recommendations. Connect with fellow dancers, join social media groups and ask for recommendations to find places worth checking out.
  • Research. Check out resources such as One Dance UK for tips and guidance on finding the information you need or turn to Groupon for inspiration.

How young can children start dance lessons?

Dance classes are a great way for kids to get active, learn a discipline and have fun along the way. Many of London’s dance studios offer dance lessons for children from the age of three, whether they want to be the next ballet superstar or just want to move to the beat of the music with their friends.

The NHS advises a mix of light and energetic daily activities for children who have started to walk by themselves, and dancing is among the best and most fun ways to introduce them to this. If you've got a budding Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers on your hands, look to Groupon for kids dance classes in east, west, north and central London.

What are the benefits of taking dance classes?

Keeping fit, learning some new skills and meeting likeminded people are just a few benefits of getting into dance classes in London. Dancing can also improve both your mental and physical health, helping you unwind after a tiring day or a long commute. It's a great way to lose weight, improve posture and flexibility, boost muscle strength and reduce stress – essentially all the benefits of a good gym session, but a lot more fun.
