If you involuntarily put an ‘and’ before the number 5, you know this one’s for you. No matter what form of dance we practised – early school years of Indian classical, summers with Shiamak Davar or chronic wedding choreography – when your jam’s on, you got to dance like nobody’s watching. But if you’d like to get those moves a bit more polished, there are some pretty great dance studios in Gurgaon that will ensure that nobody puts baby in a corner.

Here’s what we recommend… And 5, 6… and 5, 6, 7, 8!

Footloose Dance Academy takes in children as well as adults, and has classes for jazz, salsa, hip-hop and Bollywood, so you can try your hand {or rather, foot} at them all and see which rhythm suits your fancy!

The Danceworx

Founded by the rather well-known and very respected Ashley Lobo, The Danceworx takes every step seriously. They run batches for contemporary, jazz & ballet for different levels of expertise; moving up the ladder depends on your pace of learning and footwork. For those who have unpredictable schedules, they offer an Open Class schedule, which might work better for you. All courses need registration two weeks before batches begin, so make sure you call the office and find out about the admission process.
