F.A.Q. Embody Dance
All Embody Classes are held at our purpose built Embody Dance Studio, Nuneaton with the exception of Mancetter Adult Dance, Coventry Adult Dance and Tiger Feet.
At Embody Dance our dancer’s safety is our priority. We have very comprehensive safety procedures, risk assessment and are very strict about the rules surrounding Covid.
At Embody Dance we do not take grades or exams or enter competitions. We are a non-competitive dance school which is a nurturing & supportive environment for children & teens
Children’s Classes are paid for half termly in advance using our online portal. Students must sign up for their classes and pay in advance for each half term via the portal.
No we don’t. Children’s Classes are paid for half termly in advance. If your dancer is NEW to Embody and doesn’t want to continue dancing after they have experienced their first class- we are happy to refund your half term payment. Please note, if a student takes more than one class in the half term you will be eligible to pay for the whole half term.
At Embody Dance, many of the children like to wear an Embody t-shirt but it is not compulsory. Your child will need to wear clothes that they can move in and bare feet for all classes.
Dance classes are broken down into several sections. Warmups, technical exercises, traveling work and routines. If it is a show term, the focus is mostly on the show dances for that class.
We perform one large show each year in the Spring Term at Bedworth Civic Hall. There are no costumes for this show, dancers wear their Embody Star T-shirts for the performance.
Embody Dance runs term-time only, breaking for Warwickshire School holidays
Tiger Feet classes are designed specifically for children and adults with additional needs including wheelchair and seated dancers. All ages and abilities are welcome.
Tiger Feet Dancers are encouraged to stand on a spot marker which marks their dance space. Tiger Feet Classes are structured with familiar dances and songs each week with changes occurring when each group is ready. Tiger Feet classes use props and music to inspire movement, fun and laughter.

No. Adult Dance is similar to an aerobics or exercise class so you dance alone!
No not at all! All dances and simple and easy to follow, you don’t even need to remember the routines as the Embody teacher will dance in front of you and you can copy along!
Payments need to be made by contactless card at the class venue before the class starts. You will need to book a place on your class for the month and pay for this month at the start of a 4-week block of lessons. Classes are charged at £5 per class, so £20 per 4 weeks.
No. Adult Dancers do have the opportunity to dance in the Embody Show each year at Bedworth Civic Hall. However, this is completely optional and is not a requirement of attending an Adult Dance Class. Many Adult dancers come to watch their friends on stage, whereas others like to strut their stuff on stage!
