We know that with an abundance of studios and styles available in the city, choosing the best dance class for you can be challenging. But don’t worry, we’re here to help!

We’ve listed some essential tips and will explore some key points you should consider to find the best dance class to meet your unique needs and preferences. Ready?

1. Think about your goals and interests

Before you start your search, take some time to reflect on your personal goals and interests regarding dance. Are you looking for a fun activity to exercise? Do you want to improve your technical skills in a specific style? Or maybe you’re interested in exploring new forms of artistic expression? Understanding your motivations will help guide your research and find the most suitable dance class for you.

2. Explore different dance styles

Montreal is known for its cultural diversity, which is reflected in the variety of dance styles available here. From hip-hop to classical ballet, salsa, belly dancing, and our beloved Brazilian funk, there’s a style for every taste. Try out different genres to discover which one suits you best and where you feel most comfortable and inspired.

3. Research dance studios in the area

With your list of styles in hand, it’s time to research dance studios in Montreal that offer the classes you’re interested in trying out. Here, it’s always important to remember: consider the location, class schedules, instructors’ credentials, and the overall atmosphere of the studio before deciding. For example, the Rabaterapia studio is very well located, on the famous rue St. Catherine, next to the Atwater metro station – meaning it’s easily accessible, as long as you’re close to a metro station. Considering your daily routes, whether you use public transportation or not, and the distance from your home to the studio are also good ideas for choosing the best location.

4. Take trial classes

Many studios offer trial classes or introductory lessons for new students – here at Raba, a single class costs less than 20 dollars! So take advantage of opportunities like this to try out different dance styles and meet the instructors and other students. This will help you get a better idea of what the experience is like at each studio and decide which one fits best with your needs and preferences.

5. Consider the environment and community

In addition to the quality of teaching and the dance style offered, consider the environment and community at each studio. Look for a place where you feel welcomed and part of a passionate and supportive group. If you want to know what the relationship is like between the Rabas, for example, just hop over to our Instagram.
