After School Clubs
These are run at primary and secondary schools for pupils in each year group/key stage and offer the participants the opportunity to learn and create dances for fun, fitness, and performance usually over a 5 or 6 week block to fit in with term dates.
The participants are encouraged to share their ideas for music and to contribute their favourite moves allowing us to create routines as a group.
These are the props we made for ‘School Of Rock’
Alison joined the Emily Redding Dance Academy in September 2018 where she teaches the ISTD Ballet Syllabus to children aged 4 to 16.
July 2019 saw the Academy’s first solo show ‘Over The Rainbow’, at the Stamford Corn Exchange which was a huge success.
2020 and 2021 have been a bit strange with lessons having to go on-line for some of the time, but we are very glad to be back in the studio dancing face-to-face.
Hosted at the wonderful Attenborough Arts Centre since 2014, the Baby Discos provide a relaxed atmosphere for families to share their coolest dance moves. Each one has a different theme, so come along in fancy dress. We had to move to a live stream from our living room to yours in 2020, and are waiting to see what 2021 has in store! Join us on Facebook to hear all of the latest news…
