  1. Thanks Nina, Zumba has changed my life! The all you can dance membership at Body Beat has been the best investment. I only wish I can fit more lessons into my life. Dancing really is an awesome way to get fit & tone up. But most of all it is so much fun & you donít even feel like you are exercising. You & Julian are professional, approachable, & totally cool. Every Zumba class is a little different, but you make it really easy to learn & your enthusiasm is so addictive! I would recommend Zumba at Body Beat Dance Studio to anyone & guarantee that they will love it. Looking forward to Zumbaing with you next week! Cheers, Gabriella

  2. I reccomend Body Beat Dance Studio to everyone. Once you start dancing there you never want to stop.Nina, Jullian and Natalie are great instructors that make you feel comfortable at all times, their classes are fun and always full of laughs and great people. Zumba is heaven sent and the classes are always up beat and fun. Instead of a gym membership get a dance membership you loose double the weight and gain dance skills you never knew you had.

  3. Our experience has been a truly positive one- from our initial booking through to our first lesson last night. As we are not dancers, we were rather apprehensive about attending the class, but our fears were alleviated through the total professional approach of Julian our instructor, who immediately put us at ease.

  4. Julian and Nina at BodyBeat are great instructors with plenty of experience. Their beginners classes provided me with a great foundation for building on. They provide lots of tips for use on the social scene as well as heaps of different moves and variations. Intermediate and advanced classes provide great routines every week, dancing is always heaps of fun at BodyBeat. There's always lots of laughs with a great bunch of people. They have managed to develop a real family atmosphere that is relaxed and encouraging. Dance is a great way to keep fit and meet people at the same time.

  5. I joined Body Beat dance studio in November 2008, never before having taken a lesson, and now i absolutely love to dance. Julian and Nina are brilliant dance teachers with a wealth of knowledge and experience in a number of dance styles, and break down every move to make it fun and easy for beginners like me (not to mention two of the friendliest people i've ever met). I was afraid dancing would be intimidating at first, but Body Beat is a such a friendly and welcoming environment that once i tried dancing for the first time there, i couldn't stop! Since joining, I've taken on hip hop (my personal favourite!), Salsa Cha-Cha, Rock and Roll, Swing and Argentine Tango and starting to gain the confidence to take on more advance levels and even more dance styles. The monthly Salsa night parties held at the studio are especially fun, giving students a chance to practice what they've learnt in class on a social level, which is great if you think going to Salsa clubs still seem a bit scary. I highly recommend Body Beat to beginners and not-so beginners alike. It's a great way to meet new people and make new friends (so don't be put off if you have no one to go to class with), and more importantly, a fantastic place to learn how to dance! Joining Julian and Nina's studio is one of the best decisions I've ever made. Keep up the great work, guys!"
