Dance Hub is the only adult ballet dance studio in Pretoria, located in the Hoërskool Waterkloof Dance Academy Studio for the purpose of space, access and facilities. They offer classes to amateur and hobby dancers older than eighteen years of age. Teaching the Royal Academy of Dance inspired syllabus, Dance Hub offers the highest standard of recreational ballet. Although, their training does not provide any professional accreditation or the opportunity to complete dance exams, the purpose should be for the love and passion of movement art, along with physical and mental benefits. They ultimately provide the chance to be trained in dancing en pointe.
