Julianne Corey is among the dancers offering mini-classes at The Dance Complex’s Sunday open house. Corey will be running a course in Nia, a dance style influenced by martial arts.

Just in time for the new residents poking around at the possibilities of Cambridge, The Dance Complex is offering the fall version of its twice-yearly open houses Sunday.

For the volunteer-based Dance Complex this is good marketing that can being an influx of students. (The official blurb: “Trying to firm up your schedule and your body? The Dance Complex can help.”) But even participants who don’t sign up get the benefit of a dozen free 20-minute courses in an almost fearsome, if fun, medley of dance styles.

The schedule:

1 p.m. Flamenco with Ramon de los Reyes
1:20 p.m. Modern jazz with Andy Taylor-Blenis
1:40 p.m. Bellydance/Zumba with Carolisa
2 p.m. Nia with Julianne Corey
2:20 p.m. Contemporary with Sarah-Katarina “SKooJ CorE-O” Jerome
2:40 p.m. Introductory ballet with Liz Lapuh
3 p.m. Iranian/Persian with Sheila Eghbali
3:20 p.m.
Easy modern with Dance Complex founder Rozann Kraus
3:40 p.m. Jazz funk with Danny Swain
4 p.m. Salsa with Salsa Matei
4:20 p.m. Bachata with Salsa Matei
4:40 p.m. Bellydance with Johara

Participants are advised to wear comfortable clothing and bring a pair of nonstreet dancing shoes if possible. The open, ongoing classes are held in the Julie Ince Thompson Theatre at The Dance Complex, 536 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square.
