Dance workshops are a fantastic way for colleagues to not only develop team skills, but also to keep active and healthy, boost staff morale and confidence, and most importantly have FUN!

If you are planning a group activity for a corporate event, dance lessons are a great ice breaker to introduce different teams and departments, whilst developing team spirit.

Whatever outcome you’re looking for from a team building activity, we’ll tailor our workshop style, length, size, tuition, instructors and approach to your needs, either coming in to your workplace or venue across Yorkshire, or hosting at our conveniently-located studio just outside Leeds city centre (for groups of 25).

Our professional, expert and fully insured dance teachers will get everyone of all ages, abilities, personalities and job roles/levels working together towards a common goal and ensure that the results of their efforts can be seen and felt by everyone in the team. Not only will your team have fond memories of creating and learning their own unique dance routine, they can also capture the experience on film to watch back in the office. They may even want to perform the routine again at future events!

We’ve pulled off successful dance-based team building activities such as staff flash mobs and Christmas parties for clients including TeachFirst, British Gas, Connect Housing, ASDA, St James’ Hospital and PwC.

Dance themes and styles that work well for team building activities include:
  • Iconic movies, music videos and musicals like Grease, Fame, Dirty Dancing, Flashdance and Thriller

  • Strictly Ballroom

  • Street and break dancing

  • Charleston

  • Jump & Jive

  • Bollywood

  • Cheerleading

  • Salsa

  • Tap

  • 20s, 60s, 70s, 80s or 90s fever

  • And many more!

Please feel free to contact our friendly team to discuss your requirements. Looking for dancers to perform at your corporate event? Read more about our dancers for hire.

Sarah was great at getting everyone involved and having fun in some dance sessions she ran for us at a big party for our Early Years trainee teachers. Even the most unlikely dancers joined in enthusiastically and she gave everyone a fabulous time with games, new moves and even a final dance with the whole party – 120 people!

Katie has supported us with really enjoyable and different team building events and by creating and teaching fantastic opening routines for our conferences. She is great to work with, creative and an excellent tutor, making even then worst would-be dancers have a great time and feel fantastic!

- Nathan Mills, ASDA Stores Ltd

From the very outset we found Katie to be enthusiastic, professional and engaging. She was full of ideas and managed to get the best out of everyone involved in the performance. We really can’t do justice to just how brilliant she was. We will definitely be working with her again this year.

- Pat Wallis, Ophthalmology Team at St James' Hospital, NHS

We all had a great time. How you organised the session was just perfect. I would definitely recommend your services and if I can organise another team building away day, I would love to come again.

The brief was to teach four middle-aged men to dance a routine whilst dressed as nuns brandishing metre-long rulers! Katie took up the challenge and did a great job choreographing and cajoling us into some sort of order.¬†She’s a great teacher with lots of patience and humour, who made the whole experience fun and rewarding.

I stumbled across the Dance Studio Leeds by chance following a Google search for dance studios in the area. I had a vision for our annual employee awards in Manchester attended by just under 250 of our people, that featured a small number of us surprising our colleagues with a choreographed dance routine. The 6 of us were anything but dancers, but the Dance Studio Leeds Team worked wonders. From initial enquiry, to an impressive 4 hours of tutoring later, I was nothing but impressed by the team. Katie and Dani listened to my vision and made it a reality. They were friendly, enthusiastic and totally committed. Their passion for what they do, and to do it well really shone through. It was a truly pleasurable experience for those of us involved at Civica and one that we will always remember and dare I say cherish. Thank you!!
