Beginners - Street Dance Classes

Street Dance Classes - Beginners 

Straight from the freestyle urban dance that originated outside the studios to commercial street dance combining many styles from modern dance to jazz dance.

Anything goes as long as it looks and feels good, and if you have an idea for a new step - try it out! Madonna, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake to name but a few fill their pioneering videos with this exciting, funky dance form.

Our course offers a practical introduction to street dance, combining the basic moves to create a simple but effective routine. You will also get the chance to choreograph your own routines under your teacher's expert eye.

Street Dance Styles

Commercial is the style you will see danced by backing dancers for artists like Britney Spears, and on programmes such as X Factor. This style of Street Dance is based around technique, and is fused with Jazz dance. It is normally a faster and less relaxed style than Urban Street Dance.

Our Urban Street Dance styles are based on street technique, with attitude. It has an urban feel and is more relaxed than Commercial. Urban Street Dance is a story told through movement, and is danced to music such as Beyoncé and Chris Brown. There are a lot more isolations and smooth moves involved in Urban Street Dance.

Street Dance - Beginners - Skills Development

Our Street Dance Beginners course is perfect if you have little or no dance experience. We make sure that you have a good time and feel confident, while learning the essential urban moves.

Street dance is a great workout too, so you'll soon be fighting fit.

Exact content may differ depending on course duration and your needs, but topics generally covered include:

  • Learning about posture and position in dance
  • Losing inhibitions and gaining confidence
  • Developing greater balance, flexibility and strength
  • Co-ordination and footwork such as basic corner to corner work
  • Introduction to steps, turns and kicks
  • Learning to dance as a duet, trio or group incorporating routine
  • Performance of dance routines as a solo, duet, trio
  • You'll receive friendly feedback throughout
