Give your next PE or history lesson a touch of Swing, Charleston or Jive dance magic with a workshop. Specialists in dances from 1910-1961 including WW1, WW2 & post war dances
Our classes are suitable for children of all ages from primary school (year 5 upwards) to GCSE dance students and performing art colleges, and can be tailored to suit all ability levels.
We can also design our dance workshops to fit in with specific curriculum requirements. From a fun dance class, to experience a little bit of living history or help prepare a choreography for that end of year show.
The dance classes that we run offer a fantastic mix of education and exercise, helping to develop physical fitness and stamina, spatial awareness and coordination, teamwork, self-confidence and creativity simultaneously!
A typical class could include a short question and answer session, a warm up, learning a vocabulary of steps, how to create your own conversation in dance or a choreography aimed at a final performance.
One teacher is usually sufficient to lead a swing dance workshop, but please check prior to booking.
What to Wear
If possible, could the students wear either jazz shoes, plimsolls, character shoes or even street shoes in preference to bare feet or trainers that don’t allow them to spin, turn or twist where required.
