I've heard the phrase" dance class" and " dancing class" but are they really different? What's the difference between "dance" and "dancing"?
"dance class" indicates that this is a class specifically for teaching dancing to a high level of artistry, and probably run by a professional dance teacher. Those in the class may go on to become professional dancers themselves.
"dancing class" suggests some learning situation which is more informal, where people might get together to learn to dance competently, but also for the fun of it. It is probably run in a more light-hearted fun way as well.
I took those examples from Oxford dictionary. Not to mention the real difference between "dance" and "dancing"+class, how about "dance" and " dancing" when they use alone, in general.? Do they have different meanings?
Am I right to add an " s" after "meaning"?
