All professional classes at The Place are intended for high-level dancers only. These classes offer professional dancers an opportunity to maintain their skills and abilities, network with other professionals and even maybe find new projects to work on.
If you are an amateur dancer, there are lots of other opportunities for you to engage with. Browse our adult classes programme for more information.
These classes require professional standards from participants and early arrival is required for warm up.
