    Dance or dancing

    I've heard the phrase" dance class" and " dancing class" but are they really different? What's the difference between "dance" and "dancing"?

    i am just a student...

    a "dance class" would be a class where u learn how to dance but not necessarily a class where u actually dance. it seems odd but, maybe, it would be a class where you practice some dance movements, but there is no dance indeed.

    a "dancing class" would be a type of "dance class" where all the students are free to show their dancing style, as if they where in a presentation or a competition.

    did i go too far?

    regards

    I can see no difference between a class that teaches dance and a class that teaches dancing. Both will teach you to move in some way or another to music, whether formally [ballroom dancing, ballet] or informally [salsa].
