We are above the red Wallpaper shop called "colour your world". We have black signs above the front glass door & at the back of the building top of the blue fire escape stairs,
N.B: In the same building you will find the laundry, the frame shop, the medical shop and the hair & nail studio

Our studio:
We have a specially equipped dance studio. with a sprung wooden floor (too many people do not realize that any "hard floor" such as tiles, wood on concrete... should be band for gyms & dance studios as the body joints, ankles, knees, spine...suffer so much from jumping on those. It is also equipped for special courses such as Ballet with full wall mirrors & bares.

Cash, cheque or postal order made to Christina Maze, not to "Dance Centre"
sorry no credit card accepted.

"Shop around" is essential
Compare prices & quality,... but also references
 
You would ask references for a babyseatter or employee you surely should do same for a teacher! Dance involve "shaping muscles & body posture" it is ESSENTIAL to get a professional guidance from a person who studied professionally dance & not from a person who like dancing & just decide to "open" a class saying "I'm only teaching beginners!" which is the most difficult level to teach as 1) the person needs to get the right movements 2) The person could not assess if it is correct or wrong! you could teach me Chinese, I would not know if it is Japanese or Russian or "Mickey mouth language" !
Believe me I have been asked & I even taught several times people who "love" dancing but didn't train in Dance in view to teach either in "Summer camp", youth club, gym etc...taking those few classes didn't make them dancers nor teachers ...but there they are...out in the world offering courses as unfortunately there is no government qualification required to "shape people's muscles"! It is frightening!

Would you see someone taking 6 piano lessons & teach piano! Dance isn't easier!
