All our classes are broken down into age-specific sessions so your child is able to learn, develop and make friends with children the same age. Your class choice will also depend on which style of dance they'd like to learn.
All our classes are designed for your child gain confidence and become familiar with their chosen styles whilst challenging their minds and creativity.
Our 3 - 5 children's Street Dance classes are the perfect mix of fun & dance, allowing your little superstars the time and space to learn new skills and see their confidence grow as they learn to dance independently. Watch them develop as they learn to count, freestyle & move freely all in a pressure-free environment. Our Baby Street dancers also have the choice to join our annual show so they can explore their inner performer!
Our 6-8 Infant Street Dancers are constantly being taken out of their comfort zones as they start to learn harder choreography. In these classes they start gaining knowledge of the styles & moves they are learning in more detail. They will understand where their moves originated from and what they're called. They will also have a great understanding of the main Street Dance foundations before they move up to our Junior class. We also encourage them to use the moves they've learnt into their freestyle.
Not only will our Juniors learn challenging choreography, they will also start to play with the idea of choreographing routines independently or in pairs/groups. They will also be encouraged to use their basic knowledge of their street dance foundations and develop them by using our motif and development method. Our juniors have lots of opportunities to showcase their skills at local events and our annual summer show.
Our Senior dancers all have goals which are unique therefore we work with our students to help them achieve their goals. Some of our senior dancers use dance as a way to make friends and keep active. Others work extremely hard to for dance competitions, dance colleges and performances. We have also given teaching opportunities to some of our seniors who want to branch out into the teaching world.
