We wanted to start a revolution and disrupt the dancing industry. So we launched DAN'S.
We're making fitness feel good: Our classes don’t just workout your body – they’re designed to boost your mood. That’s why 95% of our DAN’Sers say they feel the mental benefit of our classes. We’re proud to be home of London’s Happiest Workout.
We're pioneering a new fitness culture: Our exotic studios transport you to the streets of Latin America where the mix of powerhouse Latin beats, authentic culture and the infectious energy give DAN’Sers an immersive, transformative experience.
We’re making fitness truly social: Everyone belongs at DAN’S – no matter where you come from. No experience needed! You come to DAN’S to free your feelings and let go. We are more than a fitness studio. We are a lifestyle.
Becoming London’s Happiest Workout didn’t happen overnight.
Our founder Daniel moved to London from Ecuador, and immediately felt the isolation and loneliness that many feel in our great city. As a proud Latin American, Daniel knew that dance had the transformative power to boost your mood and that fitness should ultimately feel good, so he created DAN’S - to bring people together and lift them up. He brought together leading dance-fitness instructors from across the world to design a cutting-edge dance syllabus to give DAN’Sers a full-body workout and boost their mood through dance. A team of athletes, professional dancers and personal trainers were assembled from Latin America to collaborate with our London team – exchanging knowledge, collaborating on cutting-edge practice and combining skills over two years - to create the world-renowned classes we offer today.
I grew up in Ecuador and I’m a proud Latin American – I love our culture, our outlook and our insatiable spirit for life! When I moved to London, like many people I struggled to find belonging and connections in this great city. I took my first dance class in 2016 - and while I quickly fell in love with how it made me feel, I realised most dance classes didn’t come close to capturing the total body + brain boost you should feel from a dance-fitness workout. That’s when I knew I needed to launch DAN’S - to bring dance and the Latin spirit to everyone in London! I wanted to create an inclusive, empowering and unforgettable space that connects people and makes them feel alive. With my amazing global team, we’ve created a unique dance-fitness syllabus guaranteed to boost your mood and body.
So come and try London’s Happiest Workout and join the DAN’S movement!
Dance releases active endorphins that stimulate your body, boost your brain function and elevate your mood. Its transformative power has been recognised by anthropologists, physicians and psychologists throughout history. Dance can change your mindset, and that can change your life.
A symbol for revolution, change and freedom – dance has always been an extension of human expression. Dance does not fit in a box. It does not care what you look like, how long you’ve danced for or how good you think you are. It only cares about your attitude.
Dance is not temporary. The feeling from dance is one you’ll carry within you forever. You won’t want to stop, but if you have to - dance will wait for you. It’s with you for life. Dance makes you happier. Join the movement.
