HELP ME PLEASE!
Help! The website is being weird and I can't book now. What do I do?
Oh no! Hmm... Well it might be a full course, or it might be a technical glitch. Either way, send us an email with info on what you want to sign up for (course name, teacher, location, start date) and we will either add you manually, or break the bad news that you've missed that boat because it's sold out. But there is always more dancing to be had! We will find a course for you!
I have never danced before, or at least not for many years! Will I be totally embarrassed?
We certainly hope none of our students feel embarrassed. We want to everyone feel comfortable; dance should be joyful after all! If you are feeling nervous, fear not. We have plenty of beginner courses on offer to ease you into dancing. Our teachers and students are all super friendly and we honestly don't care if you get the moves right; as long as you give it a go, get fierce, have a laugh and shimmy your way out the door and onto the d-floor then we are happy.
Can I just rock up to class? Do you have any casual classes?
Casual classes: YES! These are called Bey Party and you just need to bring $15 cash with you. Read more about Bey Party here.
Courses: NOPE. For these ones you need to enrol online (see instructions below).
Can I come and try, before committing to a full course?
Bey Dance offers 'come and try classes' and various one-off workshops throughout the year. So while you generally can't just rock up to a course, or attend a trial class before committing, we encourage you to try it out by coming along to either a casual class (Bey Party), a Fringe or other workshop, or one of our 'come and try' classes.
Like us on FB and follow us on Insta to make sure you know when these are on offer.

What if I am going to miss a class or two? Can I still sign up for a course?
Yes! When you book online you will be asked to pay in full for the course. However, if you know in advance that you will miss a week or two (2 max) then don't enrol online; send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with these details (course name, teacher, location, start date and dates you will miss) and we will manually enrol you and send you a custom, discounted invoice to pay online.
How do I know my enrolment is successful?
Our lovely Honey Bey Mone will send you an email confirming your booking with the course drive access. Basically, if it charged your card then it is all ok! If you don't hear from us, or you just want to check, then send us an email (email@example.com).
If I sign up for more than one course at a time are there any discounts?
Its definitely something we are open to, and we encourage you to come along to as many courses as you can, but right now our booking system doesn't support that function so no discounts are available right now. Sorry guys! They are working on it!
ATTENDING A CLASS OR COURSE
What to wear?
Whatever you want! If it makes you feel great, and you can dance in it safely, then go for it!
Bey Dance popular attire: gym type attire, leotards, stockings, short-shorts, leggings, cute oversized jumpers, Beyoncé merch of course, knee pads if you need, leg warmers, heels, boots, sneakers, heeled sneakers... Something fun and fabulous!
If you do a contemporary course then we will probably dance with bare feet.
Where is my class?
Head to our locations tab, scroll until you find your course location and there you will find an address and a map.
I have totally forgotten what we learned this week! Where can I find the video that my Captain (teacher) filmed?
All of the videos filmed during class are uploaded into our Google Drive. In week one our Honey Bey Mone should have added you to the list and given you access to the folder where all of the videos are stored for your course. You will received ONE email saying you a folder has been shared with you. Flag the email and save it in your inbox somewhere - then each week follow the link in that original email (or if you are a Google account member > go to My Drive > Shared with me > Course Name folder), and find the new video in that folder.
If you never received the email, please contact Mone: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are not a tech-wiz (totally understand) - check the confirmation email you received from Mone when you first enrolled, and check out the instructions for Drive in the attached pdf. If the email is nowhere to be found, just let us know and we can resend.
Performance opportunities with Bey Dance (for students)
Finished your course and want to show off to your friends, family, or just anyone willing to watch!? Same! We love to perform!
At Bey Dance we believe everyone can dance and we want to offer you all the opportunity to get on stage and give it a go! Every year, each state will organise a Showcase performance where friends and family are invited to come and watch students perform everything and anything they learned this year.
Other performance opportunities include smaller mini-showcases, community events, flashmobs, Fringe workshops and other events. We post about these in the FB events and in our other social media platforms so if you love the centre stage and can't wait to get involved, keep your eyes open and your leotard ready!
Sometimes Bey Dance is hired in a professional capacity, so may invite only Captains or some students who have shown loyalty and a high quality performance skills to perform. If you are desperate to be a part of this you may be asked to audition. In most circumstances though our performance opportunities will be open to students when appropriate, and the showcase is always open to everyone; Bey Dance is about inclusion and encouragement and giving it a go so we create this showcase for you guys! Get up there, shake it, shimmy it, drop it like it's hot ('cause it is!)
HIRING BEY DANCE - workshops, performance, private lessons
Bey Dance loves to dance, teach and perform. Check out the Hire Us information and send us an email about your booking enquiry.
Who are your captains?
We have an amazing team here at Bey Dance! Check out the team here.
How can I join the team?
At the moment we don't have any vacancies (sorry!) but we are a new business and hope to continue growing, so rest assured the team will be expanding. We do our best to hire from the Bey community; students, friends of captains, other performers and artists we have worked with. The reason for this is that our business is about so much more than dance and this is a way for us to get to know our people members before inviting them onto the team. At times our decisions are based on how you will fit into the existing team.
While we don't have any spots up for grabs right now, we encourage you to come to a class, meet us, have a coffee, and send us your details:
Can I start teaching Bey Dance in another state?
Love the passion! Send us an email with your information and your idea for a new state or location and we can start the discussion (e: email@example.com). Bey Dance is a growing business and of course we would love to take our courses and community to all states (and countries one day!). Right now, the focus is on building Melbourne and Adelaide, but it would be great to get to know you and what you could bring to the team. Let's be ready so when we want to make that next move we know who to call!
