Dance Clubs for 9-14yrs
Book : Sat 23 Oct '21 to Sat 11 Dec '21

This class will focus on movement creation through play, improvisation and freestyle. Teacher Rachel Sheil shares techniques she has researched and learned to provide structured improvisations (contemporary) and a freestyle environment (urban styles). Every class is different, building skills consistently, but in different ways. Dancers develop skills around body-awareness and perception, along with awareness of space and people around them.

Through group improvisations, working in small groups and pairs, the class focuses on moving, expressing through movement and, of course, having fun! This class is suitable for boys and girls of any ability.
