Mini Programme

Our mini programme has after school weekday as well as Saturday options available. Parents just drop children off for these classes so we can keep the children focused without too many distractions. If your child is struggling to leave you then please contact us and we can help make it easier. Our mini classes teach children the foundations of all styles of dance and set them up perfectly with everything they need to progress onto the next stage of their dancing which may include official examinations when they are old enough or ready to move up. By the end of the mini programme we will have a really good idea of your child’s strengths, focus and passion and can offer good advise on their next steps.

Class options for our mini programme include dance/multi and acro/gym options. Most of our students do both classes as this gives them a full range of training covering all areas to help keep their training balanced and options open.

The dance/multi class focuses on clarifying their understanding of a range of dance genres and offers them strong foundations for each of these styles. Futher development in co-ordination, contrasting movements, improvisation and technique is taught throughout the year.

The acro/gym class starts to introduce basic acro skills and tricks and some other gymnastics conditioning work that will help build their strength. Strong focuses on their balance, strength, flexibility and agility will be offered throughout the term.

Children in this programme are also offered the chance to join our performance squads which train together and perform three times per year or learn their own solo routine for our in-house comps.
