To say this family is passionate about dance would be an understatement, and in 2016 they achieved their life's dream of opening their own professional dance centre, catering for all types of dance, for all ages and all abilities
It's been a long time coming but it's here - the first purpose built, modern dance centre with sprung floors, in Manchester for decades (and one of the most highly reviewed in the whole of the UK):
The Topaz Dance Centre offers the full schedule of dance classes in Manchester catering for all types of dancers, whether you are looking to improve your social life through dance, or are dancing in the competitive arena; whether you are eight or eighty; love Ballroom & Latin or commercial & disco; single or with a partner; want private or group classes, there is something for everybody.
As members of the IDTA, Topaz Dance hold regular medal tests, and take part in the IDTA Medallist of the Year events. They are also part of the North Midlands Supadance League with couple and team competitions locally and nationally.
Our competitor practice sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays are open to all, including open competitors and those who attend other local schools.
Topaz Dance Centre are happy to arrange private dance lessons, which are perfect if you are:
Going on a cruise? Don't just sit and watch others dancing -take part
Getting married? We can choreograph and teach a routine to 'your song'.
A first timer? If you'd prefer to have the basic steps and build your confidence before joining a group class, book a private lesson or two.
Competitive? Hone your technique with private lessons.
Topaz welcome everybody to join the Topaz Dance Community, you just have to love dance! They frequently organise social dances, have a summer ball and parties throughout the year. And in June they take over a hotel in St Annes for a weekend of social dance. Just give them a call or pop in when you are passing. You'll be guaranteed a warm welcome.
Both the studios are available for private hire and are the perfect blank canvas for your own event, listed below are just some of the events/function it could be used for:
Weddings: not only can Topaz Dance Centre help you with your wedding dance, the large ballroom is the perfect location for wedding reception's with the glitterball and fairylight backdrop, hire rates start from as little as £200. They can help with all the arrangements, including catering, DJs, photo booths and room themes, even a demonstration dance from professional dancers.
Parties & Balls: No tiny dance floors here, in fact we'd say they've probably got the biggest dance floor in Manchester! Together with a licensed bar, air conditioning, location, free parking and other facilities - need we go on? If you're celebrating an anniversary, a special birthday or any other lifetime occasion, contact Topaz Dance for further information
Conferences and Seminars: Looking to get away from the office to hold an internal training event, or perhaps you're inviting guests to a conference or seminar, but don't want to pay city centre prices? Our rooms are perfect for any type of presentation and we can offer theatre style or round table formats - they are completely private, and come with free parking.
Rehearsal Space: The studios are a perfect rehearsal space, whether for dance, plays or other performance activities, with a large floor space and full length mirrors and a convenient location you'd be hard pushed to find anywhere more suitable.
Fitness Classes: if you are you looking for a location to run a fitness class, the full length mirrors and sprung floors, the studios are perfect for floor based classes such as yoga, pilates or how about a bit of belly dancing?!?
