Explore the world of contemporary dance in a fun and creative environment!

NEW for 2018-19: Terms are now 12 weeks long!



Through dynamic movement and creative and fun explorations, children will develop new dance skills in Contemporary Dance. The class environment allows for individual expression as well as building teamwork and trust amongst students, as they progress towards an end of term sharing for friends and family. Children will learn greater flexibility, strength and expression in their movements and grow in physical confidence.

Try out any class on your first visit without booking the full term! Taster sessions for 8-12 year olds are £9, and can be applied towards your term booking if your child joins the class. No Taster sessions allowed in the last 3 weeks of term.
