Every class will finish with the opportunity to put some of these skills to work in a short dance piece which we will build on each week. Wear comfortable stretchy clothes, bring a bottle of water and ballet or soft jazz shoes if you have them, if not some sensible socks are fine to start you off.

Wear comfortable stretchy clothes, bring a bottle of water and jazz shoes or trainers if you have them, if not some sensible socks are fine to start you off.

Thank you to everyone that came to view our Adult Learning stand at last weekend's Fen Edge Festival.
