We showcase classes every half term and work towards an optional show.
Street Dance Ages 7+
In these classes we work with the children on dance routines to the latest music, free styling, flexibility, strength, and walking with confidence. We also work on performance dynamics, dance technique and much more.
We showcase all of the hard work put into routines at the end of each term. The students also work towards annual shows (not compulsory).

This class is for our older dancers who are able to keep up with a faster pace and more difficult, challenging routines. Our students in these sessions also love the social aspect and the community feel to these sessions and sharing their love of dance with each other.
Students have the optional opportunity to perform outside of classes in events, fayres, shows, pantomimes and more.
Strength & Stretch Ages 7+
This class changes each week with fitness based exercises and a mixture of class structures concentrating on various muscle groups. We work on building strength for not only all genres of dance but other clubs outside of dance. We work on improving flexibility so students are able to achieve exciting tricks such as the splits, leaps, acro tricks and more.

Students will build on their theatre skills through games, role play and invention, to interpret and develop characters and scenes.
Tap Dance Mini's and 7+
Fun, upbeat and dynamic class. Students are taught tap dancing techniques, rhythm and sequences. Great class for improving rhythm, co-ordination and motor skills but also LOTS of fun.

Contemporary Dance Ages 7+
A free, loose, style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance styles including modern, jazz, lyrical and ballet.
Very enjoyable class for those who love to express themselves through dance to their favourite songs rather than focus on the stricter technique classes such as Ballet.
In this super popular class the students work on performance tricks and their flexibility skills with exciting movements such as forwards roll overs, cartwheels, splits and more!
Reserve spaces quick as this is a very popular class with children and would highly benefit their dance training.
