Welcome to Mad Dance House, the mecca of all things dance related in Brisbane! Our dance studio offers an unrivalled offering of  classes taught by industry recognised teachers for people of all levels - from the absolute beginner to the seasoned professional. Whether you have never danced before or would like to become a professional dancer, there is a class for you at Mad Dance House. 


We also offer a professional dance course for those wanting to take their dancing to another level.

Our entertainment agency  has supplied dancers for many corporate events and festivals. We  also offer personalised workshops that are perfect for team building events, birthdays, hen's parties and  bridal waltz choreography. 

And lastly we have hosted many interstate and international masterclasses with the best teachers/choreographers in the world. 



Do I need to book ahead?

In most cases you don't need to book ahead to attend a class.
Some of our more popular classes do tend to fill up very quickly, so to ensure you don't miss out we recommend you book online or through our free app to secure your spot.

Can I use the studios to come in and practice?
We hold $4 jams most Fridays from 8pm - 10pm.
Please check the online timetable to confirm if the jam is on. You are also able to hire a studio, email to inquire.

Are private lessons available?
If you want to improve your technique quickly, private lessons are a fantastic option. We offer both private one on one lessons and private group lessons (with up to 4 students) with our teachers.
For pricing and availability, please speak to our reception team or email


I've never danced before - Am I welcome at Mad Dance House?

Yes- All you need is a desire to learn and you are 50% of the way there, in our opinion! If you have never danced before and you really want to learn to dance, committing to regular class/es a week  and consistently (week in, week out) will pay off. We also offer 6 week intro courses that we highly recommend for dancers starting off. Should you just want to learn for fun - this is cool too- our advice is just HAVE FUN and only do our level zero or level 1 classes.
TIP: It is always good to remember that we have a stack of dancers that have been coming for some time so even in our level 1 classes you will see beginners that have almost mastered this level and ready to move up. 

When should I start?

Any time is a great time to start at MDH.

In most classes, the choreography changes weekly so you will learn the choreography as the class progresses.

Which class should I do?
For our new starters, we always recommend that you begin with either a BASIC or an ALL LEVEL CLASS. As you become more confident, you may like to try a BEGINNER or INTERMEDIATE CLASS. Because we are an adult school, you dance at your own discretion. When you feel ready to try a harder level- go for it!
TIP: Don’t rush the process, stay in a BASICS or BEGINNER class for a year or so before going to a harder class. Foundations is key to becoming a strong and clean dancer.  

What should I wear?

We encourage you to wear clothing that you're comfortable in and allows you to move! For Ballet, Contemporary and technique classes, tighter fitting clothes are recommended to get the most out of your class. Bring a pair of clean socks for contemporary or ballet.

Do I need special shoes?

Yes. We allow you to do 2 weeks in 'makeshift' footwear (such as socks for Ballet and trainers for Jazz) but after this we prefer and think it better for you to dance in correct footwear. 
Ballet shoes for Ballet classes. 
Bare feet /socks for contemporary. 
Proper Jazz Shoes for Jazz.
Trainers for Hip Hop styles. 
Tap- Tap Shoes (we have free tap shoes hire at front desk)

DISCOUNTS Grab a BLOCH 5% discount card from front desk. They sell dance wear and dance shoes. 

Do I need to bring anything?
We recommend you bring some water to class (we sell water at reception or bring a water bottle to leave at the studio).

Bring a spare shirt or a gym towel as you’ll most likely be working up a sweat!

Is there anything I should do before I come in for my first class?

Before you come in for your class, we ask that you set up a profile on our website or on out free app (Mad Dance House). Once set up, this will allow you to view our timetable, book into classes, pay for classes and view your schedule. To get started, click on the white arrow that says "Sign up" on the top right of the screen and follow the prompts!
