CONTEMPORARY DANCE

Contemporary Dance is all about unrestricted lines and using the space you have. 

Broaden your dance experience with classes that energise and encourage self-expression, as well as developing musicality, flexibility and muscle strength. 

With elements of lyrical Jazz, Ballet and Modern dance present, contemporary creates an exciting fusion that is becoming more popular every year.

 

JAZZ

Combining the best of many different genres, from Musical Theatre to Street Dance, the Jazz Dance class provides the perfect foundation for the serious dancer stepping into the dance world, and the opportunity to try out a variety of styles.

Jazz is a commercial style of dance that’s great fun and easy to learn. And as with all our dance classes, it will help build your fitness and tone your body as well.

 

 

 

BALLET

All ballet classes from babies up to Advanced level provided by the Wells Ballet School who we work together with and have annual shows with. An integral part of dance that will uphold all the other genres of dance. See www.wellsballetschool.co.uk

STREET DANCE

Street Dance is powerful, strong and will challenge your body in a multitude of different ways. We guide you through practical introductions to different styles and building basic moves into full routines.

So whether you're drawn to the attitude and swagger of our Urban classes, or the Jazz-infused pop rhythms of our Commercial classes, Street Dance is your chance to get moving.

 

 

TAP 

Tap is one of the most iconic forms of dance. From the back streets of New Orleans to the stars of the silver screen, Tap Dance is a timeless treat to the senses - percussive and expressive in equal measure.
