Getting Started

Congratulations! You have made the decision to learn to dance, or perhaps you know some steps and want to expand your repertoire or improve your style and technique. Don’t be nervous; you have made a great decision.

Dancing is a skill you can enjoy your entire life. It is great exercise and a healthy way to relax after a stressful day at work. Dancing is fun for singles and couples. You can learn to dance even if you don’t have a partner.

We offer a range of classes in the school for you to have a go at. All our classes are ongoing and are for beginners, intermediates and advanced dancers, so there is something for everyone.

Classes work on a four week rotation of dances therefore is perfect for people who work shifts or can’t make a regular day as you can come along to any night of the week to catch up.

If you have difficulty making the times on our timetable or feel that you could do with a little more help a one-2-one lesson with one of our fully qualified teachers is an excellent way to accelerate the learning process.

You can book lessons at your convenience to fit in with your busy schedule and can have them as frequently as you like. You will soon notice the difference!

Don’t delay book your first lesson or class now: call 02380 554192 or email info@dmdancecentre.co.uk

Our Philosophy

Our Dance Centre’s philosophy is simple, to have fun whilst learning to do something you love.

We like to encourage each student to their very best effort, and to give, in return, the care and attention each student deserves. All students can experience the joy of dance and the benefits of disciplining the mind and body that this art form requires. Our primary goal is for the development of our students, their dance career, and the enrichment that comes from studying dance. Our family-oriented, positive atmosphere builds self-esteem and the love of this cherished art form.

We want you to get the best out of your classes and lessons by learning the most up to date technique and choreography. All our teachers are fully qualified with the International Dance Teachers Association (IDTA) and encouraged to keep up with the dance industry by attending lecture days and seminars.

All we ask in return is that you enjoy yourself.

Our History

The DM Dance Centre has been established for over 40 years under the name of Diment Macdonald Dance Centre under the direction of Philip and Christine Diment. Philip is a past president, examiner and director of the International Dance Teachers Association. Christine is an established championship adjudicator in Freestyle and is also the secretary of the South East Area IDTA.

Our studio in Spring Crescent, Portswood has been a popular dance school since the 1930s. It has been extensively modernised but with lots of character enhancing features retained from the original building. In January 2013 the studio was given a makeover and now has air conditioning, a licensed bar and dance accessory store.

​Our fully qualified team of dedicated professionals are ready and waiting to welcome you into our family of enthusiastic dancers.
