What should I wear?

Wear comfortable clothing you can move in i.e. shorts, leggings, and vest top. You can choose if you would like to dance in trainers or bare feet. If you’re​ ​still unsure – have a gander through our WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR blog.
Or for advice on how to costume your party ​with accessories ​- check out our MORE IS MORE Blog​. ​We encourage you to dress up for your party, all costumes welcome!

What time should we arrive for our lesson?

It’s a good idea to arrive 10-15 minutes before the lesson so you have time to get changed and fill water bottles etc, especially with larger groups, we don’t want you missing out on any party time! However, please don’t arrive more than 15mins prior to your booking as there are no waiting areas at any of our studios.

Can people watch?

It’s fine for guests to come and watch and they will not be charged. Please let us know if advance and where possible we will make sure there are chairs available.

Can we take photos and film the dance routine?

Yes, bring your camera or smartphone. In fact we encourage you to take as many photos and videos as you want (we would love you to post these on our Facebook page) Our teachers will offer to film the routine at the end of your party.

Do I need to find a venue myself?

Keep it stress free and leave it all to us. We find and book the studio for you so sit back and relax.

Do you have insurance?

Every teacher who works for Dance Party Experience has Public Liability Insurance, which covers participants in our care, and we also all have current CRB checks. We can bring these documents to your party if you require it just ask!

Can I add more people to our group?

Yes you may add extras – the more the merrier. Our teachers do not take cash or card payments on the day so please contact us prior to the party to pay for additional participants via bank transfer.

What's the minimum or maximum number of people that can attend?

A minimum of 3 people is required for Dance Party Experience bookings. The maximum number depends on the size of the studio. We use a range of studios and the largest holding up to 70 people. Please enquire for availability.

How far in advance should I book?

The studios get snapped up quickly due to there huge popularity and are booked on a first come first serve basis. We recommend you to book your Dance Party Experience as soon as you have a date and time in mind. The sooner you can confirm the better however we can accommodate last minute bookings.

Do I get free accessories with my booking?

Yes free to use accessories are available on request and confirmed a minimum of 14 days prior to your party.

What's the difference between a one hour and 1.5 hour dance experience?

With the 1.5 hour session we teach the choreography at a slower pace. This is ideal for complete beginners or larger groups. We also recommend a 1.5 hour dance experience if you book one of our exclusive music mash ups.

Do I need exact numbers to make a booking?

No! Definitely not. This can be the hardest part of your job as the group organiser. Every single group is the same in the sense that getting a definite group size in the early stages is impossible. To make this easy for you we only need a rough idea of numbers initially, we can then book the studio hire based on these figures. However, we would need to know the final numbers a minimum of 14 days in advance as seen on our terms and conditions.

Do you cover different locations?

We are based at the famous Pineapple Dance Studios in London. However, we cover 16 prime party locations including Bath, Birmingham, Bristol, Brighton, Bournemouth, Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Leeds, Maidstone, Manchester, Nottingham, Plymouth and Southampton. If you can’t see your desired party location then please get in contact as we are happy to travel to you, travel costs additional.

Do I need any dance skills or experience?

No, all of our Dance Party Experiences have been specially designed for all ages, abilities and tailored to your group so everyone can have fun!

What if we already have a venue?

If you already have a venue in mind we are more than happy to come to you, provided there’s a clear space for everyone participating and a stereo system.

Can pregnant people join in?

Pregnant ladies are welcome to join in the party at their own pace. The only requirement is that they have asked their GP or midwife if they are able to do a dance activity.

Can we drink alcohol and bring food?

Most of our venues are private gyms or health clubs and they do not allow people to drink alcohol or bring food on the premises. Some venues do though so it’s worth checking with us first.
