The Lindy Hop is an American dance that evolved in Harlem, New York City, in the 1920s and 1930s and originally evolved with the jazz music of that time. Although both the music and the dance have evolved from the big band days, the nostalgic appeal of that era lives on in new music and this exciting retro style swing dance.

Lindy Hop Music:
Louis Jordan – Squirrel Nut Zippers
Benny Goodman – The Flying Newtrinos

argentine tango

Argentine Tango is an interpretive, improvisational social dance that allows the dancers to develop a deep connection between themselves, the music, and the environment in which they are dancing.

What people are saying about us

"Everyone should do themselves a favor and come here to learn."


Well what can I say!!! My dream was to learn ballroom dancing and to say I had a big fear of doing something on my own is an understatement. I hesitated to book a few time and when I did, I was glad too. My first phone call with the staff made me feel very relaxed and welcomed.
I arrived early and got welcomed by friendly faces, making me feel less anxious. I am almost 2 weeks into my lessons and loving it. I have learnt the basic of the Foxtrot, Rumba, Waltz, Swing, Cha Cha and the Tango...
Thank you too all the staff for making me feel extremely welcomed and comfortable. Thank you to my teacher who is helping me learn to dance and the laughs we have... I am looking forward to the social events, which will be a great way to meet new people..
Everyone should do themselves a favor and come here to learn.

"resulted in me losing 50kgs"


The teachers at CareToDance truly believed in me, pushing me to better myself on and off the dance floor, which resulted in me losing 50kgs.

"wonderful teachers"


They are wonderful teachers and are sure to take you as far as you want to go with your dancing.

"I've gained a lot more confidence."


The most encouraging, supportive, talented and passionate teachers ever. I haven't just learned steps, I've gained a lot more confidence. I always go home with a big smile on my face after each lesson.

Sandy Garcia

"we have never had so much fun!"


My partner and I started lessons at CareToDance Balmain one week ago and we have never had so much fun! The instructors are knowledgeable, personable and always welcoming. Not once have I felt judged for my (lack there of) ability.
I’m a complete beginner, my partner is an ex-dancer, however our instructors have managed to personalise the lessons for both our skill levels, and we are loving every minute of dancing together!

"Is there only 5 stars to give?"


I recently started as a beginner at CareToDance after many years of wanting to learn ballroom (but being too scared). I was blown away by the professional and welcoming environment at CTD. If you’re looking for a fun and professional social dance studio where the teachers are FAB and the programs are tailored to you - this is the place for you. Is there only 5 stars to give?

"Awesome studio, one of the best in Sydney"


My fiancé and I decided to take dance lessons only a month and a half before our wedding and with minimal dance experience together. Knowing we were strapped for time our teacher booked all of our lessons in advance and ensured that with each lesson we were learning and perfecting the steps.
The lessons are one on one and catered to our abilities which is great.
The choreography was exactly the right complexity And most of all fun. Awesome studio, one of the best in Sydney. I highly recommend for people of all dance abilities.

"feel absolutely safe and comfortable"


Even as professional dancers, Cristian and Alexia, have created an environment that has allowed myself and my fiancé as absolute beginners in dance to feel absolutely safe and comfortable while learning our bridal dance. Cristian makes it his mission to ensure your guests will be impressed!

"I couldn't recommend a better place for you to join!"


My fiance and I started dance lessons here as a birthday present as we had heard many great things about CareToDance. After only a few lessons we have some great moves under our belts, laugh a lot and finish off in such a great mood as we have learnt something new while having fun. The studio is in a great spot and our teachers are professional, warm, personable and fantastic at what they do. They also host lots of social events from casual to black tie and the group lessons are great fun. If you are thinking about taking lessons, I couldn't recommend a better place for you to join!

"their program is really well thought through"


We love our lessons at CareToDance. Christian is a great instructor and they have their program is really well thought through that breaks down the different dances into segments. They have a great way of teaching you so you understand the differences and similarities between the key styles which make them much easier to remember. And group lessons are a great way to make sure you're not learning bad habits from your partner (!) and to build your confidence.

"it is the highlight of our week!"


I cannot recommend CareToDance highly enough! My fiance and I decided to take dance lessons as a fun date night and to learn something new. From the moment we walked in the door, the CareToDance team looked after us so well, offering us drinks and making us feel at home. They made us feel relaxed and we laughed a lot! They are great dance teachers and helped us fix both major and subtle errors in our dancing. The group lessons are so much fun and it was awesome to dance with other couples. My fiance and I both really looked forward to our lessons each week, it is the highlight of our week! Thank you CareToDance for being such great teachers!

"We have come so far"


Christian and Alexia are both so humble, patient and professional! My fiancé and I have been doing private lessons with Alexia in the last 6 weeks which we started from not knowing how to move and dance together as one without stepping on each other's feet! We have come so far and I can't wait till the day where we can now enjoy the dance comfortably together and be in a magical moment. Thank you for you help and we look forward to the remaining lessons 🙂

"They are nice and friendly but very professional"


My Partner and I have been taking Dance lessons here for our wedding ceremony. Starting lessons, we were nervous that we may not accomplish our goal in time however instructors promised us a wedding dance and now we do have a wedding dance despite the time limitations we had. They are nice and friendly but very professional at the same time. For me, without any kind of dance experience, it worked well and I'm thankful for that.

"It is the perfect studio for beginner and professional dancers alike! "


To stumble upon this gem of a dance studio has been a highlight of my year. Looking to take up latin and ballroom genres has been high on my list of goals and CareToDance has been a fantastic venue thus far. Both Christian and Alexia have given me guidance with such enthusiasm and the group lessons have been a fantastic chance to hone my skills and also socialise. It is the perfect studio for beginner and professional dancers alike! I am looking forward to continuing my dance journey with CareToDance in the New Year!

"We tried a class at another studio...we could tell a huge difference in the level of skill in dancing and in teaching."


My fiancé and I started our dance classes a few months ago for our wedding and have learnt so much already. Not just for our wedding dance but with other styles which were covered in the group classes. We tried a class at another studio prior to coming here and could tell a huge difference in the level of skill in dancing and in teaching. The instructors here are incredible and make learning so fun. We always come away with a smile. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to learn to dance!

"The best thing about their program is that it was designed based on our skills"


Both Cristian & Alexia are warm and patient teachers, which really helped encourage us as a couple to get out of our comfort zone. The best thing about their program is that it was designed based on our skills rather than something that was pulled out of a textbook. Their studio provides a nice, clean and modern space, with a wall made entirely of mirrors, we were able to see exactly how we looked while dancing. I really enjoyed our lessons and would definitely recommend CareToDance.

"turning inexperienced people into great dancers"


I've been taking classes at CareToDance for a few months and absolutely love it! At first I wasn't too keen on it thinking it was a waste of time, but was proven wrong after the first session. The instructors, other than being more than welcoming, generous, easy going and beautifully spirited, they have a really good knack for turning inexperienced people into great dancers. Take it from someone who use loathed the idea of this type of dancing, it's worth it!

"Each week we improve and learn so much"


Christian and Alexia are amazing to learn from. Alexia has been teaching us our wedding dance song which we are really enjoying and the group lessons are also fun. Each week we improve and learn so much and it's also a great opportunity to switch off from the wedding plans and have some fun. Can't wait to see the final product 🙂

"fun and relaxing with us always leaving class with smiles"


The team at CareToDance have been amazing. After attending classes for a few weeks, I've really come to enjoy time spent learning new techniques and learning how to follow my partners lead. Thanks to the professional instructors, classes have been fun and relaxing with us always leaving class with smiles. Highly recommend to everyone as they really understand that we all start dance lessons a little lost but for a perfect dance routine, it's worth it!

"My ability and confidence has definitely grown only after a couple of lessons "


I must say I have come a long way in a short period of time. My ability and confidence has definitely grown only after a couple of lessons at CareToDance. The instructors really do much the classes fun and are always supportive (even when i forget the steps). Definitely looking forward to working with CareToDance for the next couple of months to become an even better dancer.

"very helpful and welcoming"


As someone who has never has private lessons before, I found the team at CareToDance Studio very helpful and welcoming. They guided my fiance and I through various dancing techniques to develop basic dancing skills and provided great suggestions of particular dance styles to match our wedding song. I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking of taking dancing lessons before their wedding to give CareToDance a try.

"A+ teaching skills and patience"


As a person who has always been known for being super duper uncoordinated, I was pretty worried about going to dance lessons... But with the A+ teaching skills and patience of the instructors even I have managed to pick up some sweet sweet moves. Thanks CareToDance!

"They have absolutely perfected the balance of making the lessons both fun and informative"


Lessons at CareToDance are definitely something I look forward to all week! There's something nice about finishing a busy week and then having a fun date night with my fiance and letting all that built-up energy come out on the dance floor. I really enjoy learning to dance under the guidance of the instructors at CareToDance. They have absolutely perfected the balance of making the lessons both fun and informative, offering constructive criticism and perfecting our technique! The social element of CareToDance is also really enjoyable. We love meeting new people each week and getting to dance together. Thanks CareToDance for making it such an enjoyable time!!

The instructors at CareToDance are very friendly, professional and can tell the level of skill is very high.

Social Party

Social parties are your first step to being an awesome dancer. All great dancers have one thing in common: steps to remember. At all CareToDance socials you attend, we will ensure that it’s a safe environment to get up, let your hair down and finally put the steps being taught to you to good use.

Enjoy some nibbles and champagne (for the nerves) and get to know your peers who are also dancing enthusiasts. At social parties the teachers are also up and dancing and are happy to answer any questions you may have; but remember, it’s a party night so save any tricky questions to ask your teacher at your next private lesson.

Studio Matches

Our Studio Matches encourage our students to spread their wings and to finally start dancing in front of people who are watching with encouragement (the shower will no longer do!), along with many more students who are also on the dance floor. This way you can learn how to contain your butterflies while you build up your confidence.

Studio Matches give our CareToDance students the unique opportunity to meet their peers who share a common passion for dancing. You also get the chance to start understanding how your body reacts when people are sitting on the sidelines watching you dance, and more importantly, how to embrace it!

At Studio Matches your teacher is either dancing with you or has helped you understand how and what to do when you are up there on your own or with your partner, showing off your new steps. At the end you might also receive a ribbon.

Dinner & Dance

Dinner and Dance is a glitzy, glamorous event we host for our students and their families and friends. Now everyone has the opportunity to see where you have been spending your time and find out what all the fuss has been about.

At our Dinner and Dance not only are our students treated to Sydney’s finest dining and spectacular views but we also give our students who want to push themselves to the next level the chance to showcase a routine to their favourite song or favourite style. CareToDance picks a 5 Star venue and we dance the night away with all your friends from the studio.

Mystery Location

Our Mystery Location events are definitely one of our most special evenings! A 5 star venue somewhere in Sydney is chosen to host a great event for our CareToDance students – but this time our students don’t actually know where they are going.

We whisk you all away in limousines, have the champagne flowing and celebrate being part of our fantastic CareToDance family! Expect Michelin star cuisines, performances from students and teachers and lots and lots of dancing – it can’t get any better than this, only at CareToDance!
