Course description:

This is just about the coolest thing you can do for your kids.

They’ll get the moves and gain the confidence to express themselves in the style they see and love in music videos and movies. It’s where they can be themselves, and be better for it.

Energetic, fun and educational, it’s also totally cool!

Not exactly sure what Street Dance is?

Commercial dance, Street Jazz, Hip-Hop and Funk are all the words that fall under the umbrella known as Street Dance. Premier Performing Arts Street Dance Classes incorporate all of these styles to create and uplifting and exciting atmosphere to learn in.

You need to know these things! There’s a whole range of seriously cool moves in Street Dance.

Your kids will learn about things like-

  • Locking – that distinctive way of ‘freezing’ between moves
  • Popping – the jerky moves. Think Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake
  • Breaking – you know about Break Dancing!
  • Krumping – straight out of LA, sharp and very stylish!

It’s seriously cool!

They get started and get moving with a warm up session. It’s a great way to break the ice and lose any inhibitions. After learning some basic footwork they develop sequences of moves. They’re soon putting together a continuous dance.

This is high energy, and really productive, activity. By the time the class is over they’ll all have grasped some basic choreography.

Best of all? They’re stepping up in confidence and fitness while they do the steps that make them feel cool. They’re learning about teamwork while working the moves like they were in a video?

Children attending these activities can also work towards their Arts Award.
