"It's about feeling the moves, not getting it right", we were told. "You have got to find a way of making it comfortable for you". Later, our instructor Elliot told BuzzFeed that "there are already so many dance studios for dancers. We wanted something that showed that everyone can do this."

"Imagine walking like the Pink Panther for this bit", Elliot our teacher advised.

8. There was some incredibly important dancing advice.

"Your hair should always have a story", our instructor, Elliot called out. And he should know. Elliot and Bonnie met while working as professional dancers.

9. It's a sweaty class.

Speaking to a classmate in the hall before the class, I learnt that "during last week's class, we burned 750 calories", according to a Nike FuelBand. Our instructor didn't let us off easy either - he returned to moves that he felt we weren't doing as well as we could have.

10. You don't just have to learn Beyoncé moves.
