Street and Commercial Dance Performance

Street and Commercial Dance Performance

Performance skills are an extremely important part of your Street and Commercial dance training.

This intensive ten week course* will equip you with the tools and practices needed to become a more confident and engaged dancer, flourishing in your own unique performance style. Take your dance development to the next level and perform at the standard of an industry professional.

You will learn from professional dancers and tutors who have performed internationally on stage and screen supporting artists such as Rihanna, Craig David, Alicia Keys and FKA Twigs.

On completion of the course you will perform at the new Street and Commercial department launch party which takes place at Rich Mix in Shoreditch. The recording of the dress rehearsal for your performance will be yours to take away from the course and use towards a dance show reel. 

*To book this course you will need to attend an audition. Details of available auditions and booking options can be found in the 'Booking and Timetable' section of this page.

Street and Commercial Dance Performance tutors


All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
