Central's adult classes provide a fun and satisfying way to improve muscle tone, flexibility and co-ordination as well as improving dance technique. Our professionally-trained instructors tailor sessions around individual class needs, so whatever your age or ability there's a class for you.

All classes cost £10 each CASH ONLY, we are unable to offer discounts on multiple classes.

What to wear

Clothing should just be loose and comfortable (as for any exercise class). Wear ballet shoes for ballet, jazz shoes for jazz classes, and bare feet for contemporary dance.

Term dates

Central Nights runs throughout the year with only short breaks over Christmas and Easter.The classes are run on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings, and Sundays. Any alterations and breaks are listed on the news section of the website and on the facebook page.

We have men and women's changing rooms, with showers which are available for your use, however we recommend that you take any valuables with you into the studio.


We are unable to sign-in people for classes more than 40 minutes prior to the class starting. Participants will not be admitted 15 + minutes after class has started.

Please note that photography and filming are strictly prohibited during all Central Nights classes.

Due to the scheduling of internal events classes may occasionally have to be cancelled, but in these instances we will give as much notice as possible. Please also note that Central Nights' teachers sometimes may need to arrange cover for their classes and we are not always able to publish this.
