|We offer Primary Schools a wide range of dance services, including:
We are able to provide funky fitness dance sessions for all your early morning risers. Classes consist of an energising warm up, a short dance routine adapted to suit the ability of the group and a relaxing cool down based on yoga stretches which will relax the minds and bodies of your children and have them ready to start the day.
Our lunchtime dance clubs can be carried out in the playground (weather permitting) or the school hall and are designed to fuse choreography from the children with expert knowledge from our instructors. The fantastic dance routines which will be produced can be performed to the school at the end of term.
(classes are usually 30-40 minutes)
