You can book classes on our website or via the DanceworksUK App. To get access to our online booking system first you need to register online. You will find our full timetable here

+ DO I HAVE TO PAY A REGISTRATION / MEMBERSHIP FEE?

Danceworks is a membership club. By opening an account you become a Danceworks member. Your £10 membership is included in your first class booking fee.

+ CAN I USE THE MINDBODY APP TO BOOK CLASSES?

+ DO I HAVE TO REGISTER AGAIN IF I’VE ALREADY SIGNED UP WITH MINDBODY AT ANOTHER BUSINESS?

No, you may use your existing account to book Danceworks classes via the Mindbody app. However we recommend you use the DanceworksUK App and create a new account to access more functions.

+ WHAT TYPE OF MEMBERSHIPS DO YOU OFFER?

Our pre-pandemic membership programme is no longer operating. There are discounts available for students, Equity and Spotlight customers. We also offer packages to member not already receiving concessionary rate. 

+ I USED TO BE A MEMBER BEFORE THE PANDEMIC. HOW HAVE THINGS CHANGED?

Our studios are now cash free and we introduced a new system from August 2020 where classes are booked and paid online. The class fee has been set to include what under the old system was the teacher’s fee and the daily membership fee. If you were a pre-paid member, to acknowledge your previous long-term commitment, a discounted rate will be available for you until your current membership expires.  Your membership will be extended to take account of the lockdown period.  These rates will be available to you online when you book the class. When your membership does expire you will be eligible for discounted class packages. 

Before your first booking please contact [email protected] for further instructions on how to access your online account and discounted class rates.  

+ HOW FAR IN ADVANCE CAN I BOOK CLASSES?

Online bookings become available 7 days in advance. For example you can book your Monday class on the Monday of the previous week.

+ I DON’T HAVE ACCESS TO A COMPUTER OR THE INTERNET. CAN I BOOK CLASSES IN PERSON?

Yes, classes can be booked in person at our Reception. Please bear in mind that class capacities are limited and they might get fully booked prior to the day the class is taking place so early booking is advised. Please note that at busy times we may not be able to take bookings over the phone.

I am trying to make payment but it doesn't go through / nothing happens, what’s the issue?

The most common reason for this is the postcode you entered does not match the one your bank has on their records. Please amend the postcode and the payment should be processed. Make sure you also check your DanceworksUK App account as this is separate from your online account (visit Profile > Edit). 

If the issue persists please email contact [email protected].

My Mindbody login doesn’t work on the DanceworksUK App. Why is that?

The Danceworks website login and the DanceworksUK App logins are separate. If you registered on the website first you will have to create a new account via the App. Please use the same email address you used for the website registration. 

If you registered on via the App first, the same details will work on the website.

 

I can’t book classes on the App. What’s the issue?

First, please ensure you are signed by tapping on Profile. You can’t book classes unless you are signed into your account. In addition, you need a membership in order to book classes at Danceworks, please pay the registration fee to gain access to bookings. You can do this via Membership > Memberships > Drop-In (Autopay).

If the above did not answer your questions please feel free to contact the Membership Department at [email protected] or call Danceworks Reception at 020 7629 6183
