NO LONGER RUNNING: Beginner Grooves Adult Dance Classes in Byron Bay

As Vanessa moved to New York to pursue her own dance training, the Byron Bay wing of Groove Therapy unfortunately had to pack up with her. If you’re really keen to get dancing, you can always sign up to our Beginner Grooves Online Course. It’s a web dance class for beginner adult dance class enthusiasts.

The online courses teach you party dances and how to groove. We DON’T teach complicated choreography that leaves you stressed and brain fried.

Wouldn’t you rather get out of your head and into your body by adding some new fun moves to your dance vocabulary? Yes. Yes you would.

Your beginner online dance class instructor is the founder and director of Groove Therapy, Vanessa Marian. Training across New York, Paris, Berlin, London, Tokyo, Brazil and regional Australia, Vanessa is particularly fascinated with street dance and the way it is born outside of the dance studio context, often by an oppressed people in reaction to political and socio-economic turmoil. in 2016 Vanessa founded Groove Therapy in Sydney, aimed at making dance accessible to all walks of life. Since then it has expanded to dance classes in Melbourne and Brisbane. Whilst Vanessa lived in Byron, she taught heaving rooms full of incredible dance enthusiasts! Whilst Byron no longer runs Groove Therapy classes, you can still take an online course in between Vanessa’s visits back to her favourite little town.

Want to practise a few moves first? Vanessa Marian has done a small instructional series and piloted with her famous body roll number, and what’s better than learning a body roll amongst your repertoire of basic social dances for your next dance floor encounter? The instructionals are brief versions of what we cover in the online course.
