Perks

not to brag or anything...

  • Short, bite-sized lessons

    Each lesson covers a new skill and is between 3 - 10 minutes long. So you can learn and re-learn new dance skills every single day no matter what your schedule looks like.

  • Bonus resources

    Learn your dance history, and how it became woven into pop-culture. From Janet, to TLC, Vanilla Ice and Will Smith we've dropped some serious knowledge and dance inspo.

  • Bonus: curated playlists

    Once you feel comfortable with the lessons, simply press mute on the videos and practise with one of our bonus curated music playlists. Think Afro-house, jazz, hip hop, funk and more.

  • Dance on your own terms

    No need to feel self conscious or dress the part boo. Online courses let you rewind, replay and pause whenever you like. Plus you get to designate your dance space around your lifestyle and schedule.

  • Learn how to own the dance floor

    From the moonwalk to the running man, body rolls to isolation fundamentals and footwork to mini-choreographies, you’re learning over 50 fundamentals to help boost that self-confidence.

  • Health benefits on all fronts

    Scientific research cites dance as the MOST superior exercise for achieving holistic physical and mental health. A self expressive art form with cardio, endorphins and mind-body connection. Boom.

Variety, fun and proper education

Jasmine

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.

Well explained

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.

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.

FAQ

  • How experienced do I need to be?

    None, zero, zip, zilch. You can be convinced that you are the worst dancer in the world and you can do this course. Or you could be an amazing bedroom dancer who just wants to learn some techniques and skills. Either way we break everything down so that you can learn these skills without any prior dance knowledge. The best bit is you can hit pause, rewind and replay whenever you like to take class at your own pace.

  • What kind of dance is it?

    Each of these courses touches on street dance styles. This means you're learning predominantly social dances that were born outside of the formal dance studio context. Think hip hop, house and iconic party dances.

  • Can I do these classes with my kids?

    Absolutely you can! Just to be transparent though, there is the odd song in the Party Dances course (being a hip hop course) that uses some adult lyrics. If that's not an issue for you, then it's time to dance battle against your kids and show them who's boss.

  • Am I too old?

    Does age matter?

  • I have injuries and/or disabilities. Can I still do the class?

    Whilst we are all for maximizing accessibility, each of us is so unique in our needs that we can't 100% guarantee that you'll be fine. If you're unsure, send us an email at hello@groovetherapy101.com detailing where you're at and we'll give you an honest answer. Overall though, you know your body best.

  • What do I wear?

    Baby, whatever you like really. We personally like our street gear, baggy tees, trackies and kicks. For our weekly classes we recommend comfortable exercise gear and any sort of sneaker or sport shoe, but you're at home - wearing pants is optional.

  • Can I watch these classes off a TV screen?

    You can cast your device to a TV using a number of gadgets and cords that are available on the interwebs. This will allow your TV to mirror whatever shows up on your screen.

  • I think my brand/workplace/event needs to collab with you, how do I get in touch?

    YEW! Send all enquiries and general compliments to hello@groovetherapy101.com and we'll suss the potential for a collab.
