What does Chunky Move offer their students? Chunky Move offers a range of adult contemporary dance classes, from complete beginner to advanced, taught by some of Melbourne’s best dance teachers. Classes are designed to encourage natural, spontaneous movement and personal interpretation, and explore self-expression, awareness of space and body movement, and safe body alignment.
How are Chunky Move courses unique? For those who have never stepped into a studio before or think they have two left feet, Chunky Move offers complete beginner series designed to get you up and moving. Perfect for fitness and strengthening muscles, we also run dance parties that celebrate the change of season. It’s a great way to bring everyone together.
Why is it important to learn something new? The classes at Chunky Move are the perfect way to unwind, get fit and improve flexibility and strength. Whether you’re starting out or an expert, our dance studios will have an option suitable for you.
What are you most proud of at Chunky Move? We want to create a welcoming, supportive and safe environment where people can enjoy moving without any fear of judgment. We have recently introduced a complete beginner series for people aged 50-plus. The series is very successful and it is wonderful to see many new faces giving dance classes a go.
