DIAF visited the James & Alex Dance Studios in Dubai Media City. We met with Alex de Smet who told us about the various dance forms offered at the studio.

Founded in 2012, the dance studios are the vision of two of Dubai’s successful salsa dancers, James Castro and Alex de Smet.  Having already established one of the largest salsa schools in Dubai, they decided to open their own venue dedicated purely to dance.  The result is a 4000 sq. ft. venue boasting three studios with private and group classes in Salsa, Tango, Zumba, Bachata, Zouk, Pole Fitness, Contemporary and Hip-Hop. James & Alex also host regular practice parties and social events across town and their venue available for private hire.

The studios are open Saturday to Thursday between 2pm and 10pm and are located in the Concord Tower further down ITP Publishing on the left.  For more information and the latest class schedule, please visit www.jamesandalex.com
