Dancing is a great way to take some time out of your day to just enjoy yourself; enjoy that healthy lifestyle but also have fun while doing so. Whether you used to go to a gym back home, go running in a gym or even use those stairs in your building as your means of exercise, keeping fit in a new place might be the last thing on your mind but a great way to implement a new routine is by joining STU Arts Dance classes online or in person.
6. STU Arts Dance is more than just a dance class
At STU Arts, we are more than just a dance class. While we do offer some amazing classes to get you started on your dancing journey, we have a special community that goes beyond the four walls of a studio. Each week we engage in an ECD brunch session where about 6-10 of us all head out after class to one of our favourite café’s where we order food, catch up on life and meet new faces! If you are a new expat this is a perfect way to get familiar with some amazing spots Brussels has to offer while also meeting new friends! Beyond just grabbing lunch after class, we hold monthly events where we pick different activities to do together. In the past we have gone to karaoke, axe throwing, grabbing drinks, and have plans to go bowling, participating in an escape room and laser tag! (keeping it safe of course). In the heart of it, we really try to make it a great experience and easy transition for expats in a new country.
So come join us! STU Arts is a great place if you are a new expat or have even lived here quite a while, we will be happy to have you! Come join Thursdays and Sundays in the studio (hopefully soon) where you can learn to shimmy and shake, learn some wicked cool dance moves and meet some awesome people!
