Dance at home around the world

Craving some world travel? Here are 30+ virtual dance classes to stream

Two of my favorite things of all time are traveling and dancing. But I can’t go on any big trips right now because of the pandemic. And in normal times we can’t always hop on a plane to Tahiti or Egypt at the first tug of a travel itch.

But we CAN have delight-filled dance experiences from cultures all over the world at the tap of our fingertips.

To make it easy for you to travel at home with your feet I’ve compiled this list of 30+ dance classes to check out.

Some of these classes are on-demand. I love the high-energy choreography from the platform Bollyx, which combines Bhangra and Bollywood dancing.

Other classes are live on Zoom. Highland Hustle had me hopping, clapping, and smiling along with an instructor in Scotland and 12 other dancers in their respective Brady Bunch boxes at 9:30am.

If you’re looking for a special treat – Jean Appolon is offering his Saturday Haitian dance class online during the pandemic. He’s a Boston-based dancer and has been teaching at the Dance Complex in Cambridge for many, many years. His Saturday class is always full and is a hub of community and joy for Haitian culture and all those who are interested in it.

Let me know in the comments

  • which class you tried and how you liked it
  • another virtual dance class or studio that isn’t listed here
  • a dance style that we should know about

I’m planning to write more about these classes over time, but you don’t have to wait to shake your boombsey!
