There are lots of different styles of dance from contemporary dance, street dance and ballet to salsa, Zumba and Bokwa. On a basic level all dance involves moving rhythmically to music and following a sequence of moves. That doesn’t really explain fully dance and just how uplifting and invigorating a sport it is.
Dance is creative and gives you chance to express yourself and have fun. It is a great way to meet new people and try something different. You might have gone to ballet classes as a child but how about street dance or Zumba, there are so many different dance classes in Leeds you can try a whole range of dance styles.
Leeds is a city of dance.
It is the number one city for dance outside of London, so make the most of it and get dancing.
You don’t need to have danced professionally to enjoy dance. Everyone loves to dance. As soon as the music starts let yourself go.
There is a dance style for everyone, if you want to try a slower pace why not give ballroom dancing a go or if you fancy trying something a bit more up tempo how about street dance?
Dancing is a very social sport and learning a new skill and dance moves can be extremely rewarding. It is a fun workout and you can make some new friends at the same time. The majority of dance classes are done indoors so whatever the weather you can dance. Dance classes are a great way to try dancing for the first time and then you can practice your moves at home with friends
What are you waiting for? Get moving.
The cost of dancing varies depending what type of dance you want to try. Most dance classes are around £5 and some you have to book for a course of classes which can work out cheaper. If you want to try a new dance many places in Leeds offer ‘taster’ sessions and beginner classes which are a great way to try it for the first time.
Some gyms in Leeds offer the more aerobic style dances such as Zumba and Bokwa and the classes are free if you are a member of the gym.
We want you to help us persuade more women and girls to get active, whatever their age, size, background or ability.
