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

No difference in this context, both adjectives.
Marius, can it be that "dance class" refers to "dance music class" and "dancing class" to dance in general? Emotion: tongue tied

Hi guys,

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



There's really no difference here, but 'dance class' is more idiomatic, at least where I live.

Here too. My younger daughter is "taking dance" for the first time. Her "dance class" is on Wednesdays. She doesn't really practice her dancing at home much.
I took those examples from Oxford dictionary. Not to mention the real difference between "dance" and "dancing", 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"?

At the New York Times site, they're both used, but "dancing class" seems to be the version used in articles published over 50 years ago, in general:
