Learning to dance in Birmingham- sounds great - but where to take classes?
Many options are available for beginner dancers. It's a good idea to look for one adapted to the personality and goals of the student.

Birmingham, the second largest city in the UK behind London, has no shortage of dance schools and classes available. They can be found at schools, associations, dance academies, societies and more.
Dance schools are a good way to learn to dance. The teachers are for the most part professional dancers who have transitioned into dance teachers. In this way you are learning from them all the best advice they have to offer. However, dance schools often offer higher fees than some associations.
Dance associations are often useful for finding rather original kinds of dance. Dance styles that we might not find in professional schools or academies. In addition, prices are often affordable.
A last solution exists to find the perfect teacher, one who is adapted to your level and your expectations. This solution involves finding a private dance teacher for yourself or your child. Different platforms like Superprof propose to put you in touch with dance teachers who have varying levels of experience.

However, it is advisable to start with a rather accessible type of dance such as modern jazz. It allows you to become familiar with the exercises of flexibility, muscle building and stretching, before choosing a more specific style of dance. In addition, it is much easier to find modern jazz dance classes as they are very widespread.
Birmingham is also a city rich in cultural diversity and this is reflected in its artistic practices. Styles blend together to give birth to other forms of dance.
