Dance classes in Chiang Mai

21:42 Amy Lou 0 Comments

The dance scene in Chiang Mai is big, and growing. Classes cater to all levels, all the way from beginner to pro. Finding concrete information about class schedules is notoriously difficult, so I did it for you.

Like most things in Chiang Mai, venues and schedules change often. The best way to double-check if there are dance classes happening when you're in town is by looking on each group's Facebook page or website, and email or call the teacher/page admin. If you can't get hold of anyone, just turn up. The worst that can happen is no class, and you can go and have a lovely coffee or bowl of khao soy instead!
