Do you need to enquire or have we answered your question below?

Can I join the class?

All of our classes are either drop in or a course. If the class is advertised as a drop in, then there’s no need to book a place in advance- you can just turn up on the night. If the class is advertised as a course, then please check the class page and/or enquire with the course’s teacher about when you can join.

Which level is appropriate for me?

The majority of our classes and courses are either open level, beginners, improvers, intermediate or advanced. As a general rule:
  • Open class – open to all levels from beginners to more advanced dancers

  • Beginners – for those with little to no experience of the style.

  • Improvers – for those with some experience of the style, but still learning and refining their moves

  • Intermediate – for those with a lot of experience of the style, looking to be pushed and/or learn more difficult steps/routines

  • Advanced – for those with considerable amount of experience in the style, also open to professionals and teachers

How much is it, and how do I pay for it?

The prices of each class differ depending on the teacher and style – for price information please see the individual class page by selecting it from our timetable. If the class is a drop in class  run by The Dance Studio Leeds (excluding our Advanced Series and Get Down With the Kids class) our prices are £7 drop in or £6.50 with a valid student card – for block class prices see here.

DSL classes – can be booked online in advance, or come and see us at reception before the class to pay by cash or card. N.b we don’t accept cheques for class payments.

For all Non-DSL classes – Some teachers do accept card payments for the class, however, please check the details on the class page to make sure. If in doubt, please bring cash to pay the teacher. The nearest cash point can be found at Aldi, where Skinner Lane meets Regent Street (about 5 mins walk).

Is the class on tonight?

We endeavour to advertise changes to classes as soon as possible. Any class cancellations and changes will be advertised on our website with a note on the timetable or on our Facebook page. If nothing is advertised then the class is running as normal! If in doubt please give us a call on 0113 242 1550 (although please note our daytime office hours do vary if nobody answers your call).

Tell me more about the class?

Full details about when the class is, how much each class is, what level the class is and whether you can just turn up on the night are on each individual class page which you can find on our class page here.

Where is the studio located?

Our address is:

I want to start dancing which style do you recommend?

If you are looking to learn dance moves that you might use when going out to a club or a bar, our DSL Street Class is a good place to start. If you’re looking for ways to keep fit then perhaps try out DSL Ballet Fitness or DSL Latin Dance Fit. Want to try something brand new? How about giving out DSL Tap Fundamentals course a go!

If none of these take your fancy, then have a look through our classes page and see whether anything draws your attention.

I’m “older/overweight/inexperienced” etc. do you think the class will be suitable for me?

Anyone and everyone is welcome at our classes, no matter your age, dress size, shoe size, religion, race or gender. We want to make our studios as accessible and welcoming as possible, so if you want to attend a class and it’s the appropriate level of experience for you, then come along! We’d love to have you come and dance with us!

What does DSL stand for?

DSL stands for The Dance Studio Leeds!

What’s the difference between classes labelled DSL and classes that aren’t?

Our weekly class timetable is made up of classes that we, The Dance Studio Leeds, run and manage ourselves and external hirers who use our studios to run their own classes. If you look at our class timetable you can tell which classes are run by us as they’ll have DSL written on the class name, all others are run and managed by the teacher of that class.

Why can’t I use my class pass/free trial on all of the classes?

Our free trial voucher, 6 class and 12 class passes are only valid for use with drop in classes labelled DSL, as these are the classes that we, The Dance Studio Leeds, run and manage ourselves – this excludes our DSL Advanced Series, DSL Get Down With The Kids and our DSL Courses as they have different offers and prices. All of the other classes that are not labelled DSL, are independently managed by the teacher of that class. Please visit the class page for the class you are interested in for the full information about class prices and/or multi-class offers.

Do you have any children’s classes?

At the moment the only children’s class we run is Get Down With The Kids, which occurs monthly on a Saturday from 10am – 11am. You can find out more information about it here. The rest of our DSL classes are for adults, aged 16+. We market our classes for adults, which means unfortunately we cannot allow children to participate at the moment. Some of the classes run by external hirers here at The Dance Studio Leeds, however, do allow dancers of a younger age than 16, so please check the class page for the class you’re interested in for full details. 

If you are interested in running a children’s class at our studios, please get in touch with us!

I tried calling the studio and nobody answered.

Our daytime hours vary depending on how busy we are. This means that sometimes the studio isn’t open until the evening (roughly 5pm). We endeavour to respond to all email and phone enquiries as quickly as possible, and we apologise if any inconvenience has been caused.

I’m interested in booking Standby Space. How does it work?

Reserved only for non-profit use, our studios can be hired for only £5 an hour when booked 24 hours or less in advance.

Our Standby Space is subject to terms and conditions and also studio availability, so we can’t guarantee which studio will be available. Payment is required upon booking over the phone, and is non-refundable in the event of cancellation.

Please call us on 0113 242 1550 for more information, to enquire about availability and to book. If we are unable to take your call, please leave a message and we will get back to you as fast as we can.
