Street Dance was a term coined originally to describe dances that developed outside of the studio setting and in a social space like streets, clubs and parks. The original street dances include Breaking, Popping and Locking. This form of dance is exploratory and is a natural response of the bodies’ movement to music.
Street Dance lessons are non-syllabus based and follow the latest dance trends and crazes. Routines and sequences are performed to a variety of modern and popular music genres. Dancers are given the opportunity to explore their creativity and express their individuality. Focus is placed on the dynamics of movement and performance skills. Thus introducing students to the commercial world of Dance.
As Street Dance is an exploratory form of dance examinations are not taken.
Energetic and lively Street Dance classes take place in the Pistachio in the Park cafe, Redhill memorial park, every Tuesday during term time. There is no need to book so you can just turn up when you’re free. This lesson is run through voluntary donations during the class. Both classes are run by our Head of Dance, Mrs Greenwood. The children have the opportunity to learn the Street Dance technique by a highly qualified teacher in a low key relaxed environment. Parents are welcome to buy something from the cafe and relax while their child is dancing.
The sounds of the latest pop songs can be heard around the park, as the children strut their stuff and perform their coolest moves! If your child loves to dance as soon as they hear music, then this class will definitely not disappoint.
Lessons run on a Tuesday at the following times-
