What we’re about

We believe dance is something to be enjoyed by all the community. We offer a wide range of classes that focus not only on dance skills and fitness but also on self-confidence and fun. Dance should enable you to be free to be you.

Whilst classes are running there will be a cafe and play areas for siblings to enjoy because we’re also passionate about creating community around dance.

After finishing school Hannah became an apprentice of Springs Dance Company (a Christian Dance Company) where she learnt many styles of contemporary dance, as well as ballet and street dance. This year also involved touring the UK and Germany, teaching creative dance and performing in schools and churches. Hannah is now in her second year at the Royal Academy of Dance and she is enjoying improving her ballet and contemporary technique and refining her teaching skills.
