Our Dance Masterclass Cocktail Night is the perfect place to enjoy a drink and chat with friends before witnessing first-hand, the moves of two world-class dancers.

For two weeks, from July 29-August 1 and August 5-8, at Karen Hardy Studios, budding Brendan Coles and future Flavia Cacace’s can learn how to dance in a variety of styles and have tremendous fun along the way.
