Concessions apply to children, students in full time education and people in receipt of benefits.

Refunds can only be given when Dancefest cancels a class or when a participant withdraws from a class before the first session (a 10% administration fee will be charged). All other requests for refunds will be at the discretion of the Manager and will only be considered in exceptional circumstances. Dancefest reserves the right to cancel any class that does not meet minimum numbers.

What to wear

When you’re taking part in our classes, to keep you safe while you dance and to let you move easily, we recommend that you wear comfortable clothes and, if you have long hair, that you tie it back.

Tracksuit bottoms or leggings and a t-shirt are ideal for most classes (school uniform, dresses, skirts and tights are not really suitable to dance in). You’ll usually dance in bare feet but for urban classes please wear trainers.

General information

All classes are open to anyone except advanced classes, which require previous dance experience.

Due to the physical nature of the classes if you have any problems relevant to participation please check with your doctor. Dance workers cannot advise on health problems, but please inform them, in confidence, of any problems you may have.
