Whether you’ve not danced before or you attend classes regularly, come and take part in this exciting summer school which will keep you entertained while giving you new dance skills and experience. You can choose to take part in one week or both weeks; if you’re really keen and love to dance, we recommend you do both!
    • Week One you will get to try out a wide range of dance styles including Contemporary, Street, Musical Theatre, Ballet, Jazz and African to name a few! You’ll be working with specialist dance teachers and a group of dancers of a similar age and ability. This is a chance to try out new styles, improve your technique and increase your fitness in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

This is an amazing opportunity for aspiring dancers to work with two of the country’s leading dance artists and experience life as a professional dancer for a week.
