A fun and inspiring class for young children. 

Stories and role play form a large part of the class as children use their imaginations to move and dance like animals, characters, machines and even some quite abstract things such as wind.  Props such as floaty scarves and shaky streamers are used to encourage children to explore their movement further and sometimes we dress up to get into character.  Each half term we work on new dances  inspired by seasonal themes and celebrations. 

Through regular attendance of these classes, children gain confidence in their movement and show pride in the dances that they create. At the end of term we show our work to parents and friends. 



As with the pre-school classes there is still a strong emphasis on imaginative role play through dance and movement and we continue to follow seasonal themes. However, the dances are now a little more structured and the children are invited to take more of a creative lead in producing their own movement for the dances. More recognisable dance moves and technique are introduced and children start to learn how to reproduce and repeat sequences of movement.



GROOVY MOVES (7-11 years)

A contemporary based dance class that explores a variety of dance styles including African, Brazilian and Hip Hop. Using the dance moves that they learn children work together to make some new and very funky dances which always offer the chance of individual creative input.

There are many opportunities to perform what they have learnt to an audience. In the past, Groovy

Moves have danced at The Brighton Dome, Hove Town Hall, The Windmill Theatre, for the for the Children's Parade, at Hanover Day and Patchfest. They have also been Junior Finalists in the Dance for Life Competition.

For the last 5 years we have made  short dance films.

MAKING MOVES (12-16 years)

An energetic dance class incorporating contemporary technique and sometimes fusing other dance styles. The second half of the class will be for creating dances. Company members will learn the essential choreographic skills to become a great dance maker and have a lot of fun doing it! Occasionally, professional choreographers will create a piece for them.  The group will have the opportunity to perform at local dance festivals.
