From the running man to the moonwalk, watch your friends' jaws drop next time you hit the dance floor.

Many of us innately enjoy dancing, or at least the idea of dancing, but don't quite have the dance vocabulary to back up our passion. But never fear, the Party Dances course is here.

Don't ever freeze up again with your same tired moves on loop when you're on the dance floor. Imagine that moment when you pull out a moon walk, spin to the floor, rock some of that Charleston footwork and end it all with a slide across the floor. This is self expression at its absolute finest. And don't worry about your skill level. As a dance teacher with over 10 years experience, I've never met a left foot I can't teach. Get inspired, start dancing.

Then we string those moves together into mini-combos (i.e. mini-routines)

Great explanation


I really appreciate the gentle step-by-step nature of these courses and the cool bonus notes that came with each module. The online courses fill the big Groove Therapy shaped hole in my heart now that I no longer live in Brisbane!

Love the variety and clear instruction


I loved the variety of fun moves and dances. I also love the clear instruction for progressions (lots of other online dance courses are lacking this). The history that is detailed behind all these dance moves are very inspiring too.

It's fun!


I loved the breakdown of the moves and the repetition repetition! Do it 'til you get it right. It was fun, I laughed a lot.

Vanessa Varghese

So throughout my life, I've trained across New York, Paris, Berlin, London, Tokyo, Australia, Brazil and my purple bedroom. In a nutshell, my professional dance credits include an Adidas sponsorship and movement direction for Victoria's Secret, Nike, Bonds, G-star RAW and MTV. But look, in all honesty, I really just dance for my mental wellbeing. So in 2016 I hired out a small community hall with no mirrors, dimmed the lights and held a beginners dance class. Turns out people liked it because that little community class has now grown into an international movement. Crazy. So now, I want to level up with this online series and spread the groove further. This isn't about working within the world of professional dancers, it's about making the brilliance of dance open to all walks of life. It's never too late to start learning. I hope you'll join the fam. Stay updated via my instagram @vanessamarian_

You know that moment where all your friends stop on the dance floor and look at you like 'HOW DID YOU LEARN TO DANCE LIKE THAT?'

No? Well you better get started then.
