FBi Radio Dance Class is a DJ training and mentorship program to support the next generation of women, non-binary and trans talent in dance music.

Over 16 weeks, the Class of 2019 took part in an intensive workshop series and mentorship program learning the art of mixing, the ins and outs of the industry, and how to host their own club nights, fully equipping them to dive head first into their local music community.

Every Thursday night in May, they took over Tokyo Sing Song at the Marly with a weekly unique club night. Capping a month of parties off with a bang, akka, Cilla, DAME, GiuliaHei Zhi Ma 黑芝麻 and Index took the TSS stage once more alongside two of their favourite local acts, DIN and DJ Scorpion.

FBi Radio Dance Class is powered by Tokyo Sing Song.
