We are an up and coming dance school that offers dance classes in Southend on Sea and Rochford. We provide dance classes in various styles including contemporary which can be anything from abstract contemporary to a more lyrical contemporary. In our Technique classes we get down to the bare basics of dance and work our way through. Including ballet and contemporary technique we learn how to pirouette properly so we can progress into fouette turns. We stretch in our technique classes to maintain our flexibility and learn everything from parallel foot exercises to floor work. A class most students take to help progress and maintain their technique throughout their dance classes. We also provide a street/commercial class where we get to let our hair down and hair a bit of fun. It's where our inner 'Beyonce' can come out as well as putting our moves and technique to practice.
Teacher: Sophie Aldridge
I have had my fair share of experience and training over the years. I have had copious amounts of audition experience and now aim to help those going through the same process. As a younger teacher I know how the industry has changed more recently and bring a fresh traditional style to my teaching. I have performed in music videos such as 'Example' and also performed in various shows, including our local theatre. My goal is to inspire any one to want to dance and to have the passion I have had from a young age. I want to push students to there best and help them succeed in their dream. I have been teaching now for 3 years and enjoy every moment.
Our teaching offers something unique compared to most schools. We do not offer exams instead we offer a competition team which gives you the skills you would learn in exams but lets you put them to the test and perform. Nothing quite compares to performing and in a competition environment it will make you want to be better than your last dance. You will gain the knowledge of the industry and the skills to get you there. A chance to form long lasting friendships and have fun along the way!
Going into our third year, we have annual Christmas and summer shows. A great opportunity for students to perform.
