Let’s dance. No really, lets. It’s time to shape up and learn something new, but where?
1 Adult’s ballet: Hard day at the office? Looking for a way to relax that doesn’t involve an all-you-can-eat deal? Then a bit of ballet could be for you. You don’t need to have any experience as there are classes for beginners and it’s a great way to meet people while getting fit.
2Belly dancing: Don’t worry, there’s no need to go flat out and buy a costume. Just turn up in something comfortable and prepare to learn some Arabic moves. This ones not just great exercise, it should also help you to look a bit better on the dance floor. Think Shakira, and you’re on your way.
3 Flamenco: Always fancied yourself as a bit of a Spanish senorita? Well, why not, we’ve all got it in us. Some to a lesser extent than others, granted, but it’s fun to learn. An excellent way to keep fit without realizing it.
4 Kundalini yoga: Think yoga, crossed with medication. It’s not exactly a dance class, more a series of flowing movements, but it prepares your limbs to be more flexible as well as sending you on your way to a dancer’s body.
5 Power bhangra: Are you ready for a full-on dance workout? This one’s pretty intense but it’ll have you fit in no time, with a selection of pretty impressive moves under your belt.
6 Tap dancing for beginners: Fancy yourself as a bit of Fred Astaire. Yup, us too. Strap on your tap shoes and head on down to learn your tap-shaped trade at this Dubai class. It’s a lot more of a workout than you might thing but it’s so much fun you’ll hardly notice.
7 Salsa: This is salsa with a difference, Cuban salsa to be precise. The organizers describe it as a passionate, fun, and sociable experience. That’s good enough for us, where do we sign?
8 Jazz for kids: Have you got a little one with a passion for dance? Sign them up here for jazz, ballet, and tap. They’ll love it, and it’s good exercise too so it’s a win-win.
9 Dance, movement and mime: This is another great class to try for kids, especially really little ones as you can sign them up from aged three onwards. Classes involve a bit of everything so not ideal if you’re budding young star wants to focus on one thing, but ideal for a bit of fun.
10 Irish dance: Fancy looking like a bit of an expert next time you hit the Irish Village on Paddy’s Day? Then sign up for a spot of Irish Dancing and master some Celtic moves to impress your friend with.

If anyone might be interested, there are Tango classes in Dxb, at this south american restaurant Pachanga, at the Hilton in JBR. What's nice hear is that you get to meet the Tango community that exists in the city.
