Dancing Through Life Studios is an adult dance studio for young adults, adults, and seniors who love dancing as much as meeting new people!

After struggling to find a non-competitive adult dance studio on the North Shore, DTLS Founder, Lauren Mackinnon, established Dancing Through Life Studios. A studio that she herself would love to attend that offers a variety of classes in different styles, has competitive prices, and is great value for money. 

With classes in; Adult TapAdult JazzAdult Theatre Jazz, Adult Hip Hop, Adult Dance Fit, and Dance Choreography there is something for everyone!

Founder, Lauren Mackinnon, combines her industry training, Bachelor of Arts (Media), and Master of Teaching (Drama & Dance), along with 10 years of dance teaching knowledge, to empower adults in their learning of new dance styles.

"Everyone can be a dancer. Regardless of whether you have had years of training or none at all.

As a dancer, I have had many negative experiences leaving a class feeling disheartened and inadequate." - Lauren MacKinnon

This studio is for dancers who have left school and have no where to dance for fun. It’s for young adults who want to try a new style of dance. It’s for adults who have always wanted to learn dance but have been reluctant. It’s for Mothers who want to dance at a studio that is close to home. It’s for senior dancers who have danced in the past and want to get back to it for fun and fitness.

Dancing Through Life Studios brings together adults from the local community - of all ages, abilities and dance backgrounds. We are a social, non-competitive studio that is passionate about making sure all of our dancers leave our classes feeling encouraged, inspiredand empowered.Whether that is through learning a new skill, refining your technique, achieving your fitness goals, or leaving with a new friend. 

Nothing matters
But knowing nothing matters
It's just life
So keep dancing through
