Read on to find out which class is right for you...
FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS
At Dee Street we consider ourselves experts at teaching absolute beginners to dance.
This class is fun, energising and gives you a taste of the foundations of the styles we love. You’ll learn how to isolate the hips and chest, whine your waist, pop and drop your booty, find rhythm in your steps and torso and begin to relax and let go into the joy of dance.
In each class we work on activating key muscles, put moves together into a routine then warm down thoroughly and stretch it all out. We always focus on dancing safely with options to rest and modify as needed and are committed to supporting you every step of the way.
If you have never done any hip hop, Afro, Dancehall or related styles this is the best place to start so you can really embody the foundations. You'll always get ore out of the class since the styles are all about self expression and relaxing more and more into it. We recommend completing a minimum of 2 courses of Step In before moving to Step Up.
MONDAY NIGHTS IN PRESTON

WEDNESDAY NIGHTS IN FITZROY NORTH

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DANCED BEFORE
In this class we build on our foundations and move at a faster pace with our routine. You’ll get a lot out of the class if you already know a range of moves like butterfly, basic top rock steps and torso pulses and you feel confident twerking, whining, shaking your booty and starting to put your own style into your dance.
If that doesn't sound like you, jump into our Step In course and we’ll see you here in a bit!
If you have experience in Hip Hop, African dance or Dancehall, you’ll probably be good to go. If you did ballet, jazz or tap as a kid and are good at picking up choreography, we still recommend you do the Step In course first to embody the specific shapes, qualities and release before jumping into Step Up but feel free to email us if you're not sure.
FOR THOSE WHO WANNA SHAKE IT UP
This class is a goal oriented experience where we learn and build whole new routines that become part of the crew's repertoire, practice freestyling with confidence, dance with others in a troupe and hone in on what’s needed technically, physically and mentally to be a great dancer.
We’ll use a more disciplined structure to get you really progressing in your dance and expect you to be committed to the weekly course classes as well as outside practice as needed.
You will recieve one-on-one targeted feedback specific to your dancing, class playlist, practice videos and opportunities to represent Dee Street at performances and events.
