The Academies

The Film Dance Academy will introduce many iconic dances from films new and old. Our professional dance teachers will take you through dance warm ups, progressive stretches and fun filled, energetic classes that will cover a variety of dance themes so that all the students come away with new moves and routines, new friends and a better knowledge of dance within film.

This fun and inspiring course will culminate in a small performance during the final session so that the students can proudly showcase all they have learnt to a small but enthusiastic audience.
