Free dances classes in Dubai

One week of drop-in sessions in Media City

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

This week: drop-in dance classes, try an exclusive scent, and a new laser-guided beard trimmer for men.

Love a group fitness session, but trying to save your dirhams? Get your jazz hands ready, from Sunday October 20 James and Alex Dance Studios (04 447 0773) in Dubai Media City is offering free drop-in dance classes for an entire week. Nimble-footed freaks (and those less so) can choose from ballet, hip-hop, contemporary, tango, salsa, bachata, zouk, flamenco and Zumba. Better yet, you don’t need to book.

Hipsters, next time you’re in the market for a signature fragrance, head for luxury Dubai-based beauty boutique Backstage (04 385 5500) and pick up a bottle of The Scent of Departure. Designed by famous perfumier Gerald Ghislain, and stocked exclusively at the store in Dubai, the scents capture some of the world’s most loved cities, including Tokyo, Paris and Dubai.

Lastly, men looking to get fancy with their facial hair can manicure their beards to perfection with the world’s first laser-guided beard trimmer, available here. Stocked at all electronics dealers, including Emax Electronics (04 380 4140), the Phillips Beard Trimmer 9000 projects a red light on the cheek, jawline and neck where the hair needs to be cut, so gents, there’ll be no excuses for uneven lines.
