If Melbourne is anything to go by, there's a huge part of our city out there who loves to dance. For great reasons too - how much fun is it? A long time Melbourne based company who also loves to dance, is Chunky Move . They offer public classes with a professional edge in Contemporary, Ballet, Fletcher Pilates and Funk. For those new to taking part in dance classes, Chunky Moves looks after you with beginner programs and for the more experienced dancer, join the intermediate or advanced classes.
Imagine yourself in an amazing, open and huge studio space, equivalent to two storeys, where thin windows let in streams of sunlight as you and a group of people move simultaneously together to sounds of music. You hear your teacher, who has an amazing history in dance, say '...and 5, 6, 7 and 8,' and as you finish your last move on eight, the teacher stops the music and begins to take you through the next steps of your class. It's a great atmosphere and each classes energy is different depending on the dance style, the teacher and the students.
Hmmmm, wait a sec, is the name Chunky Move sounding familiar? I'm not surprised; you may recognise this nationally and internationally renowned company from performances such as Glow, I Like This, Tense Dave and I Want To Dance Better At Parties to name only a few. So you can be sure the teachers know there stuff! In fact if you're keen to see Chunky Moves in action first or in conjunction with your dance classes, refer to their website for upcoming events. You can also see them perform in Dance Massive from 15 to 27 March, 2011.
