Our popular Youth Dance Company is for boys and girls aged 11-18 yrs. The weekly sessions are led by local choreogapher and dance teacher, Hannah Pickett. Students will improve their strength, flexibility and core stability. As well as learning routines, dancers will also explore their own choreographic ideas. With inspiration drawn from well known choreographers like Richard Alston, Merce Cunningham, Martha Graham and Hofesh Shechter.
For younger children, we offer Drama and Movement classes. We often use characters or themes from stories or pictures to inspire the children to create movement and dance. Children learn new techniques, how to sequence and they also develop their sense of rhythm and musicality whilst having an enormous amount of fun!
These exciting dance classes are led by our inspiring professionals who encourage each student to develop their dance skills at their own pace and create fabulous dances to be proud of. With regular opportunities of sharing work to parents and siblings in our end of term Showcases and in our big shows children develop their confidence.
