FAQ

I want to attend the kpop dance classes. Where do I book? / What should I do?

It’s best to book your class in advance using our online booking system. Go to the class schedule page then click on any of the BOOK NOW buttons. Booking in advance will assure that you have a spot available. If a class is not fully booked, you may be able pop along for a drop in session and pay cash on the day. However, it is subject to availability.

Is there a mailing list? / I want to receive the class schedule updates?

You can sign up to our mailing list here to receive new k-pop class schedules, vote for next k-pop dance songs and hear about other DGC events.

How much are classes?

It does vary per class. Currently it’s £7 for one hour, £8.50 for a 1h 15m session, £10.50 for a 1h 30m session and £12 for a 1h 45m session.

How do I pay for classes?

Just bring cash and pay when the teacher or DGC helper does the class register before / at the start of class. Exact amount is preferred.

I’m a complete beginner with no dance experience / I’ve never danced before. Can I take part in classes?

Yes, complete beginners are welcome. 95% of new students have never danced before.

Are there age requirements to attend classes?

Minimum age is 16 to take part in class. Please note: some venues (e.g. Soho Gyms and Gymbox) require you to be at least 18 years old.

I’m under 16. Can I attend if I have parental consent or my parent is present? / if I’m almost 16? / if I’m 15? / if I’m 14?

We get this question a lot however unfortunately to attend classes, the minimum age is 16. Please come back once you turn 16 :)

Do I need a gym membership to attend classes?

No, there is no entrance fee at the gym venues even though you are not a member there. However you do need to sign in as a guest at the gym reception.

What is your cancellation policy? / How do I cancel my booking?

View our cancellation policy page here for full details.

I’m female. Can I attend the male songs kpop dance classes? / I’m male. Can I attend the female songs kpop dance classes?

Yes you can. All our classes are open to both male and female students.

What do I wear for class?

Wear any thing comfortable to dance in, e.g. gym clothes and trainers / sneakers. Make sure your shoes do not leave marks on the studio floor. There are changing rooms at the venues if you need to change before or after class. You can leave your belongings inside the dance studio at the sides.

How many students are there in a class?

It does vary depending on the song and the day of the week. On average, it’s about 21 per class (January 2017).

What’s the format of the classes?

We usually start with a warm-up: stretches and a mix of warm-up dance moves.
Then we teach you choreography – the actual kpop dance moves from the music video.

Do I need to attend all sessions in one week?

You can attend as many or as few sessions as you wish. Most students choose the best day of the week for them and only attend those sessions. Around 25% attend more than one session each week, e.g. Wed & Fri. Or you could mix and match to whenever you are free. However we do teach the same section of the song for a given week; and a new section starts usually on Tuesday. The benefits of attending more than once a week is that you can really hone and practice your moves for a particular section or pick up extra detail on parts you missed the first time round; or just so you can spend more time dancing to KPOP :)

Can I start a song midway? / I’ve missed the first class – can I still join?

You can join the classes any time however we do recommend you join within the first 2 weeks (Part 1 or Part 2). Most of the sessions are drop-in classes; a specific section of the song is taught and previous class knowledge is not required (unless it’s a recap class).

What are recap classes? If I didn’t attend Part 1 – Part 4, can I learn from the recap only?

The “Recap” classes are aimed at those who’ve attended Part 1 – 4 classes and already know the choreography. These classes are more about having the chance to dance the whole song all the way through multiple times. We’ll step through the choreo at a fast pace but we won’t be re-teaching the song from scratch.

I would like to perform with at the next dance showcase / I want to audition for a song. What should I do?

For a particular song, you’ll need to attend our classes for that song. Then you’ll get an email after the whole song is taught asking whether you wish to audition to perform in the next show. You can read more about dance shows here. Please note – we don’t accept applications to audition if you didn’t attend class but you learnt the dance on your own.
