What better way to keep moving and warm as the cold weather approaches than by coming to our Dance Bootcamp. Back by popular demand, and a new addition to the autumn term, this is a real energy boosting 2-day workout and a great way to try 12 genres of dance including Afro Cuban, Bollywood, hip hop, reggaeton, musical theatre, ballet, contemporary and more in a fun and lively environment, open to all levels.

Another definite new style to try is this term's cover style West African Dance. Then, hosted by Mixed Roots Scotland, Guinean dance teacher Mohamed Kouyate will be teaching a Dance of Guinea workshop that will be sure to keep you buzzing with energy and happiness this term.

Next to that, we’re excited to welcome you into our studios for this year’s Christmas Show (p37 in the brochure)!

For our younger dancers this term we are introducing Dance Academy P7+ to our programme. A continuation of Mini and Junior Dance Academy, this class offers young people aged P7+ the opportunity to continue developing their skills in tap, jazz, ballet and contemporary, and is a great introduction to new styles for young dancers looking to learn.

Workshops and *NEW* Autumn Bootcamp

Of course, there are many more classes to choose from! Let’s celebrate this autumn!

Try Before You Buy
If you are unsure which dance style and level is right for you, why not Try Before You Buy? During the first two weeks of term, you can go to any dance class, have a nosey and decide which class to continue with, once you've had a try. (This is subject to availability and you need to arrive at reception half an hour before the trial class begins.)
