  • Cassettes Private Workshop: The team had such a fun time, it was the perfect mix of joy/fun and team building. Afterward the whole team was laughing/ happy/relaxed and said how much they enjoyed themselves. It was just what we all needed.

  • Thank you all so so much for an incredible show last night – everyone was absolutely blown away! You really know how to get the party started.  HUGE thanks!

  • This is the happiest dance class of my entire life.  Thank you!

  • Thank you!!!  I had the best fun ever and floated all the way home.  It’s been over a decade since I’ve done a proper dance class like that…. You are all so amazing & the class was magical.  Thank you for re-igniting my flame.

  • When Marissa teaches, she has an amazing technique: her students can really feel her creativity coming through.  Riss has a gift for describing dance moves that make them easy for anyone to learn.  She provides a beautiful and safe space for people to not only get fit, learn dance, but also to express themselves and feel connected with a group of people.

  • The best thing I did this year.
    Thank you for making dreams come true.
    Dancing alongside such delightful, positive women, full of encouragement.
    You all made me feel that I could do it.
    Such a wonderful experience.

  • I absolutely loved my first Cassette’s class!! I’ve been wanting to do it for years and I’m so happy I did it.  I’m hooked now! It’s so fun and positive and energetic. The teachers are fantastic! So much knowledge, positivity and sunshine just radiates from these gorgeous ladies. The finale night was so much fun and my family and I had a ball! Thank you from the whole of my heart to all the Cassettes team, my self esteem and confidence, my fitness and my zest for life has sky rocketed dancing with you all! I can’t wait to do it again in 2020! I’m all booked in and ready to go!! Wahoooo!!!

  • Dancing at The Cassettes for two years was one of the best experiences of my life.

  • For me, no other dance classes are as magical.

    Feeling blue? Research shows dance will help

    May all the diverse threads of your life come into wholesome ease. – John O’Donohue Ooh, science I know intuitively that dance helps me, but research also shows that dancing is not only good for us, but may be essential for our wellbeing.  We’ve been shaking our collective booty in various ways for 1.5 million years, so it makes sense that we might yearn…

    Flashback to the Bentley Blockade – a fracking good news story.

    We live in a time of being constantly bombarded with bad news stories. The news has always been primarily negative – “if it bleeds it leads” is an old journalist motto – but we haven’t always carried it around it our bloody pockets. When I spontaneously pick up my phone to feel connected to the…
