Corporate events

We were thrilled to have Justin from Alegria Dance Co conduct a dance class at the Langham Hotel for our 2023 Business Partner City Reception. Our 130 guests hailed from diverse countries such as Australia, Japan, Korea, Thailand, China, Malaysia, and the Philippines, including distinguished figures like the Mayor of Osaka and the Lord Mayor of Melbourne.

Justin's energy and expertise brought everyone together on the night, breaking down cultural barriers and creating a joyful, memorable experience for all. His ability to engage and inspire such a varied group was first class. We highly recommend Justin and Alegria Dance Co for any event seeking to blend fun, culture, business and community in a unique and unforgettable way.




The entire team at Alegria Dance Centre make you feel welcome from the moment you step foot inside the studio doors. Having started with zero dance experience, I began private dance lessons with Justin to simply learn the basic steps. Being taught by someone who has so much enthusiasm and passion for teaching dance, it was hard not to be inspired to push myself further. So now, I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to perform in front of my family and friends at the biannual Gala Balls. I highly recommend Alegria, you won’t be disappointed!


Fantastic. We are two people with zero dance experience. Justin was great from the very first contact and designed a dance that suited our wedding first dance song perfectly and was achievable for us to learn. Super professional throughout and great fun. Would highly recommend and already have done to a few friends.
