What we offer
We’re an LGBTQI (+ allies), Social Group running weekly dance classes for Same Sex dancing in Ballroom & Latin, in Fitzroy on Tuesdays and Footscray on Friday nights.
Classes re-commence in 2019 – Tues 22 January, we hope to see you then!
Join our group meet up on 2 Feb @ Collingwood Town Hall for Melbourne’s annual Same Sex DanceSports. Please sign up to our newsletter for details.
Beginners classes are held on Tuesdays and we host a Friday Social Class on Friday evenings, for dancers of all experience. Beginners are welcome on Fridays too, however, this is more of a practice session and social night, so new students may need to sit out for some of the session. Especially for the trickier dances such as the Viennese Waltz etc..
Some students meet up at Bar POOF or the Dancing Dog in Footscray on Fridays, which is about 5-10 min walk away from our venue. You’ll need to post on our Facebook page to arrange a meetup or just talk to your fellow classmates during class to tee something up. Parking on site at Footscray only and also on the street, at both venues. No watchers please, classes are adults only (16 yrs +), and cash only please – no ATM facilities, sorry.

This is an adults only and LGBTQI (+ allies), space. Classes and events are held specifically for our community, but everyone’s welcome to join. You don’t need a partner or any experience, just LGBTQI friendly and willing to give it a try. You can expect to dance with partners of either gender, as there’s usually lots of partner swapping throughout class. It’s a fun atmosphere and a friendly crowd, so please don’t be shy if you want to give it a try, there’s no obligation to continue.
