DANCE CLASSES

Our dance classes are held in 5 – 7  week blocks, on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings at our studio in Perth. Each class runs for approximately 60 – 90 minutes depending on the level being instructed.

Please note, all of our classes are by enrolment only. Select the class you would like to attend below, and complete your enrolment. Don’t worry if you’re coming on your own! Students in all of our courses are a mixture of singles and couples and there is no need to bring a partner. About 70% of our clients actually come on their own.

We also hold a social dance after each class which is open to the public, so you can practice the techniques you have learned and socialise with your fellow students and teachers, and other Gilkisons clients.

If you would prefer one-on-one tuition or simply aren’t ready to join a class, consider booking a private dance lesson with one of our teachers.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our classes or your enrolment.
