Boasting 600 students, Dancentre has a team of professional international teachers who speak Vietnamese, English and French. It provides a space for both beginners and professionals to learn, have fun and, above all, dance. Jazz, Hip Hop, Ballet, Afro Beat, Zumba, Tap and Contemporary Dance classes are all offered. Children can begin from the age of four. Dancentre cooperates with many international schools and some of them host dance studios that the teachers use. Nevertheless, students prefer to come to the main centre in D2 because of its facilities. An annual show is organised each year. The school is closed during the summer for children, but adult classes continue year-round.
