I am a complete beginner at dance. Can I join?

Yes absolutely! All our style-based classes (Hip-Hop, Locking, Popping, Waacking, House, Breaking) are open to all levels of dancers who want to learn or practice basic moves and foundations. You’re also welcome to join our Beginner Choreography classes to learn a dance routine – they are geared towards dancers at a beginner or no level of experience. Come through!
The obvious answer is to take classes regularly. This is where you will learn the basics and how to put them together. But practicing outside of class is where you truly grow as a dancer. PRACTICE = IMPROVEMENT. Practice by yourself in your bedroom, in the shower, at the bus stop. Practice with others during jams, at the club, after class. If you can, travel for dance. You’ll be exposed to other teachers and different ways of thinking. Watch the people inside and outside of your community and get inspired! Listen to the music you dance to during your commute to uni. Knowing the songs will help you immensely in your confidence to freestyle. You’ll soon find your own special groove!
When you buy a UQ Street Groove membership you get access to our weekly Saturday classes at no extra cost! We also hold battles, workshops and social events, which you will receive discounted tickets to. With interstate and international borders slowly opening up we hope to invite guest teachers from outside of Brisbane to our events. We are excited to have partnered with multiple dance studios this semester to give you the opportunity to be exposed to the Brisbane dance scene! Art In Motion (AIM) offers $40 annual memberships to Street Groove members (usually $60). You can also access a V-Hub 10 Class Pass for $140 (usually $160) and a monthly unlimited pass for $185 (usually $200). Lastly, you can claim 10% off any classes/passes at Mad Dance House when you show your Street Groove membership!
