FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is ARTBEAT really for everybody?
YES provided you are over 16 years of age and are able to follow the ARTBEAT principals.
ARTBEAT is for everybody and Every Body. We welcome people of all abilities, ages (16+) and backgrounds. People with mobility support (wheelchairs, walking frames etc) are absolutely welcome, and carers dance for free. Please feel free to get in contact if you have any specific questions or concerns, or check out our notes on access.
Why do you need to be over 16 years to participate?
We notice that with children on the dance floor adults will often moderate their behaviour in an effort to keep children safe. Obviously we want ARTBEAT to be a safe and supportive space for everyone - but having children in the room does create a different dynamic that may hinder some people's sense of freedom. If you are, or your child is, under 16years and are interested in participating in ARTBEAT we'd love to hear from you - please contact us.
What should I wear to ARTBEAT?
comfy sneakers - or you can dance barefoot if you like.
cool + stretchy clothes ie: shorts, tights, singlet etc.
What should I bring to ARTBEAT?
change of shirt for end of class
$20 cash (or we also have eftpos)
