Children’s Dance Class 9 – 11 yrs
This class is aimed at the older children. We teach a selection of dances from the following styles
- Street Dance
- Latin American
In this class we concentrate a little more on the development of technique within the dances but still with a firm emphasis on fun & enjoyment enabling the children to further grow & develop in both confidence and ability in a safe & friendly environment. There are no expensive uniforms to buy and there are no term fees, you just pay for the classes you attend (PAYG).
All our pupils are given the opportunity if they wish to take a range of Medal Tests and also OFQUAL recognised graded qualifications. These are examined by an independent examiner from the IDTA (International Dance Teachers’ Association). These are not compulsory.
Our teachers are FULLY QUALIFIED professionals with the IDTA (International Dance Teachers’ Association) with many years professional dance and teaching experience and hold current CRB/DBS checks.
