Recreational Dance with a number of recognised dancers.

Frequently asked questions

Can I trial a dance class first?

You can trial our dance classes for $10 before registering for the full course. However, our classes have limted spaces available with these spaces offered to full programme participants first meaning your trial space is not guaranteed. For any successful trials, we deduct the $10 trial fee from the remaining programme balance. 
Bookings are essential for all trials via recprogrammes@auckland.ac.nz

What if I cant make it to all of the classes?

We understand that sometimes things come up and considering the nature of our institution we have set our programme pricing structure to reflect a missed class or 2. We are unable to offer make up classes or refunds due to the limited registration capacity.
We appreciate your understanding. 

What do you need to wear?

Comfortable clothing, barefeet, socks, or dance heels (please ensure no stilettos and must include heel stopper).

Where are the classes held?

Classes are held in our Dance Studio on Level 4 behind the table tennis area (above reception) If you are not sure, please ask a reception member to assist. You don’t need to access through reception for the class as the studio is located external to the main gym facilities.

What dance experience do I need?

Our dance programme is a recreational programme for social involvement. No prior dance experience is required as the classes will provide a variety of options to suit all levels. The programme is open level in a friendly and welcoming environment for everyone to join.
