Title of Class: DanceMode KWB – Street Dance & Drama Classes
Class Description:

Each session is made up of two half hour classes, half hour drama and half hour street dance. In this time the children learn to develop their characterisation and imagination skills. We work with the children to use their emotions and help develop their confidence from a young age. Opening them up to the exciting world of make believe and showing them anything is possible! In street dance we teach them funky fun routines to their favorite well known songs and help them with their flexibility and coordination not to mention having a great time boogieing and having lots of fun with out loveable staff.


We teach them all the foundations of dance working on turns, tricks, big jumps, partner work and funky steps they so often see on TV. Our routines are styled in street dance and commercial hip hop, using the latest songs they hear on the radio. (Opportunities given in IDTA Exams, Competitions and Shows.)


We work on several different acting and improvisation skills that will encourage and build imagination, confidence and concentration. We encourage voice projection and work on diction making the children confident to produce solo and group work to large audiences. Not to mention fun games and generally having a great laugh!
