Dance Out

Dance Out is a fun, beginner friendly, FREE dance class for all LGBT women and non-binary people who wish to access a woman-centred space. With a variety of dance styles taking place over the course of these twice monthly hour long sessions, this will be an amazing opportunity to try your hand (and feet!) at some dancing. Whether you’re at home on the dance floor or only ever dance on your own in the kitchen, this is the class is for you. The point of Dance Out is to get moving, meet some new people, and most importantly, have fun!

Classes take place twice a month at Studio 25, an accessible dance studio in Manchester City Centre. No need to commit to a number of classes – just come along and try it out!

This month will be trying Brazilian Dance with Mika

A fun, friendly dance session that will put a smile on your face and a wiggle in your hips! Explore and learn about dances from all over Brazil set to uplifting and energising music to boost your mood and general feel good vibes! Mika will be offering both a standing and seated version of this session, with lots of options and adaptations to choose from. The session will start with a warm-up to mobilise the body and boost circulation, then we'll take a journey around Brazil for our dances, ending with a cool down and stretch. There's no pressure to get the steps right, just enjoy the chance to dance for yourself!
