OnPointe moves to Loop Street, Cape Town

Dear Dancers,

We hope you are enjoying your summer and not melting whilst keeping up with your fitness routine.

We would like to share some fabulous news from OnPointe Dance Studio! We are moving base to a much larger and more central studio where we are establishing Cape Town’s first Dance & Wellness Centre.

Please note that as of Monday 3 March all classes will be held at the new space, 5th Floor, 112 Loop Street (next to the Christian Bernard Hospital).

We will continue to provide foundation contemporary dance classes (beginners) along with many other levels and various styles of dance, including Hip-Hop, Yogalaties, Dancercise, Salsa and Children’s Classes. We are also considering introducing Tango, Tap and much more. Please drop us an email to let me know which additional dance classes you would be interested in attending so that we can investigate options.

For those of you with flexible schedules we provide morning classes, and for those who are jam packed in the week, we offer Saturday classes.

Our new class, Yogalaties, is created by a dancer for a non-dancer to increase strength, tone and flexibility of muscles whilst using the techniques of yoga, pilates and breath work. This 30 minute workout is available before work (7h15 / 8h00), lunch time (12h30) and in the evening (19h30 / 20h00).

All our classes are structured to combine fun, fitness and freedom of movement and run on a monthly basis. No matter your age, dance experience or fitness level, we have a class that’s right for you.

To celebrate our new space, we are offering these special packages for the next 6 months:
1. UNLIMITED DANCE CLASSES (excluding Foundation Courses and Yogalaties): R800 per month
2. UNLIMITED DANCE AND YOGALATIES CLASSES (excluding Foundation Courses): R1000 per month

Please have a look through our schedule and let us know which classes you would like to book for.

Please Note: We do not accept cash or credit card and all classes must be paid for in advance (monthly) via EFT by the first of the month to ensure your space.
We do not accommodate drop-ins but we can arrange trial sessions for a special fee of R150 per class.

Looking forward to having you in the NEW studio!

Yours in dance & development

February’s packed with new classes

Is February the month for you to start taking classes with OnPointe?

We think so! We’ve added a host of new classes to our schedule, due to the high demand for our dance classes this year.

New to our evening schedule is an Advanced class and an additional Improver class. We’ve also added a HipHop class and a Tone-Up session.  We also now offer Foundation and Improver Contemporary Classes on a Saturday.

Please review the new class schedule and structure before making your decision.  If you are not sure where you might fit in terms of the class level, let me know and I will happily assist you in your choice and correspond with your teacher to ensure that you find yourself in the class that is most beneficial and enjoyable for you.

We look forward to having you join us in studio next month!

Yours in dance
