New to Energia

Firstly welcome to Energia studios! We're honoured to have you join us. We are the place you'll come to for dance & fitness and find yourself staying for the people. 

Good Things to Know About us

INCLUSIVE

We are an inclusive school. What does that mean? It means all of our partner work classes use language such as lead & follow, strong & flow. We don't mind how you identify with your gender, choose whether you would like to lead, or to follow.

Don't know where to start?

Want to try partner dancing yet unsure which style? We suggest taking our FREE Absolute Basics classes in Bachata & Salsa. This class will give you a taste tester of a few different styles so the following term, you already know which ones you would like to join. 

Looking to simply move your body yet not interested in partner classes? We suggest taking the Samba or Zumba class. It's fitness but in a fun way.

COMMUNITY

The thing we hear the most, from people & what they love about Energia studios, is our community. We pride ourselves on a positive, inclusive, warm community. Part of that has to do with ensuring you, our students have a safe space to be comfortable to make mistakes in class. Be comfortable to come to us with any concerns within the community. 

 

On top of that, we love to host a good shindig. We aim to host 1 dance social event & 1 non dance social even a term.  

LEVELS

Basics

Expect to be in basics classes for at least 12 weeks before you move on. Basics are run over two terms. You can easily join at the start of  Basics or Basics ii however you'll need to complete both so you have all the necessary concepts before moving up.

Fundamentals

Expect to be in fundamentals anywhere from 24 weeks to 48 weeks to really solidify all of the knowledge you need in your head and repetition in your body before moving on.

Level Up

Expect to be in Level Up for as long as you love to learn about dance. At this level, you won't expect to see HUGE leaps of growth. Small, incremental steps towards being a high-level dancer are where this game is played.

Levelless

We have a bunch of classes that are levelless due to the nature of the class & the fact that a newbie and a super experienced dancer, mover & shaker will all get something from the class. Think Zumba, Stretch & Strengthen type classes.

FAQ's

How do Online classes work?


Take a class from the comfort of your own home or take us with you on holidays. We are using the Zoom.us platform. You will need to sign up for an account with Zoom.us (you can use a free account) and download the app onto your laptop or whichever device you will watch from. Using the app is a much friendly user experience than using a web browser. If you are able to cast it on to your TV, the instructors will almost feel like they're in the room with you. You'll then go to our list of classes and each week book the classes you wish to attend & you'll automatically receive a zoom link which, once it's time for class, log on and we will let you in immediately. When you first click the link, the app will ask you if you would like to join with audio & video, set that up to be automatic. Then each time you log into class, you'll enter a waiting room which the instructor will let you into once they are ready. We suggest you 'pin' the instructor so they are the main screen you see, turn off your mic unless you have a question so that the sounds in your home don't interfere with the class. We also recommend downloading the application rather than running the class through your browser.




What footwear should I use?


For online dance & Zumba classes, we recommend shoes of some form. Whether you wear Taygra flat dance shoes that you can wear on all surfaces, runners that give you some swivel ability or jazz shoes, something that will protect your soles (they can burn on the floor if they aren't covered) that are more than socks which can cause you to slip. For pilates and yoga classes you can wear bare feet. In-studio classes, you can wear Latin dance shoes, Taygra's or secure street shoes that won't allow your foot to fall in and out of the shoe. We also have shoes for sale for you to purchase




What should I wear to classes?


For online dance & fitness classes, we recommend clothes of some sort that you can easily move in. If your camera is off, it's your choice just how covered you are. The camera on, please cover the important parts. Whatever you wear you don't want it to be too baggy that your finger gets caught as you swish your arm around. You don't want the clothes so restrictive that you can't kick your head... even if you literally can't kick your own head. In-studio classes for partner work classes we recommend you wear things that will help keep you cool and also remember whilst connecting with another person, you don't want to touch a top dripping with sweat. That could mean being aware of the types of materials you wear and bringing a change of top in warmer months. For fitness classes such as Zumba, Pilates, Yoga and performance classes, we highly recommend activewear. For other classes, street clothes are fine.




How many people do you have in classes?


Energia Studios is a boutique studio so we cap our classes at 24 people to ensure we can give the individual attention needed and to not crowd the dance floor.




Do I need to bring my own partner? Do I have to swap partners in the partner classes?


No, you do not need to bring your own partner. We change partners in the class and there are plenty of people who come on their own. If you do bring your own partner and don't wish to swap, just let the instructor know. There are many benefits in changing partners though we understand that at times, you need to get comfortable before changing partners.
