If you’ve felt like you were born with two left feet, or simply want to learn some basics and fundamentals of dance, here’s your chance! 

This class is for people who don’t quite feel comfortable diving into drop in dance classes, and to learn basic yet essential techniques. 

This is for all of you who hide in the back and sway from side to side at the club, or for those wanting to get comfortable attending casual dance classes. 

This event will be half social chats with a bunch of like minded queer people and half fun, educational and interactive workshop.

All workshops are taught by queers, for queers.

What will we cover?

In this workshop we will:

  • Learn about finding your own unique groove
  • Basic commercial/street styles
  • Cover technique as well as how to find rhythm and flow. 
  • Elements and accents to look for in tracks, so that if you’re improvising you know what to hit! 

This class is about getting comfortable with movement so you can tear up any dance floor- with style! 

We’ll then tie all of this into a basic routine at the end of class. 

What will I need

  • A bit of space and a bottle of water! 


  • Closed Captions
  • Cheap Tix
  • Share the Love Free Tix (prioritised for First Nations, Trans & Poc Attendee)
  • Auslan Interpreted Upon Request 

    Who will be Facilitating?

    When not performing, she teaches dance, barre, and spin classes. Her passion for movement led her to teaching on the side, and she has facilitated workshops for movers young and old; no matter what skill level.
