Top Tips

Timing is Key

Arrive a few minutes before your class starts to give yourself some time to chill out and get in the zone!

Fix Up, Look Sharp

Wear suitable clothing for dance. We don't mean leotard & tights, unless that's your thing, leggings & a top are fine but skinny jeans are a no-no.

Check the Level

Choose a class level to suit your ability. If you're not sure, just ask and your tutor will be happy to avise you.

Stay hydrated

Bottled water is available to buy at the studio, or bring your own. It's an essential.

Find your way

Dance HQ is situated in the stunning Templeton Building at Glasgow Green. Check out the on-site map for our location.

We don't bite!
