Some of the dance questions about learning and dance schools that I receive are from visitors that haven’t browsed over our main page for dance schools:

Contemporary dance schools

If you haven't visited that page of our website yet, you might ask about something that is already posted within Please, make sure of at least browsing over that section and its related pages before asking a new question here.

If you read those pages and still have a question, you can also follow a very simple process before asking. Please have a look at our right column, where you will find a Google search box. It is located near the top, just below the post for the e-book of contemporary dance history.

This search box works only within (our website), and not within the rest of the Web. Just write some of the words that make your question, for example CONTEMPORARY DANCE CLASSES IN BELGIUM, and then click the search button. A new page will open with several results. Now you can read about what you are looking for. It is very possible that you will find the answer to your query.

If after reading the above information you still have a question, please feel free to ask. The only thing I ask in exchange is that you leave me your e-mail address. I will not use it to send you ads or spam. The reason for this is that I have too many submissions. Some of them are about already asked questions, some are out of topic, some need that I contact the submitter, some don’t. I need your e-mails to handle all this questions better; otherwise this is an endless work. So, I will not answer to you if you don’t leave your e-mail address, whether in the notification options or within your message.



Now just follow these steps:

1. PLEASE browse over the already asked questions (they are posted below the submission form), before submitting a new one. You might find that the answer is already here for you!

If your question has not been asked yet:

2. Fill in the form below and click on the ‘send my question’ button.

Make sure you always select one of the notification options when asked andprovide your e-mail address. I will not answer to repeated questions but I will contact you to tell you where the answer can be found. By providing your e-mail you will also instantly know when my answer, or comments from other visitors, have been posted.

Feel free to ask as many questions as you like, but only one question per submission. Just remember that this is a website about contemporary dance. If you ask a question about another type of dance, it might not be included on this page or take much longer to be answered.

And… this is the section for contemporary dance questions about learning and dance schools. But don’t worry if you send a question about another category by mistake. I will place your submission in the right place and will let you know where to find it (leave your e-mail in the notification settings at the end of the submission process, if you want to allow me to contact you, for example in a case like this…)

You will find your questions with their respective answers and/or comments below the submission form.

Ask your question here:

Remember that this is a website about contemporary dance. Out of topic questions will not be replied.
