STREET DANCE CLASSES IN Reigate & redhill
STREET DANCE REIGATE
Our street dance classes in Reigate, Redhill and Merstham offer a fun and stimulating experience for children, who get inspired by our excellent ex performing teachers. We focus on commercial street which gives children great coordination skills accompanied by the most current urban music. Creativity is paramount and from the early years, children are encouraged to input their own bespoke moves after learning key routines, so that they build their repertoire of current dance steps while adding their own vibe.
Children are grouped in age specific groups (we don't' put 4 year olds and 10 year olds together in one class). This way, children learn with their close peer groups, and make lost of new friends with a common interest.
Like "pop" music, street dance has a number of different styles such as hip-hop, street jazz, street fun funk and urban dance, but the Reigate School of Ballet & Commercial Dance focuses mainly on commercial street which is defined by the popularized styles often associated with pop videos, TV work, the Brit awards and current theatre work. We believe this is the most relevant open style for children to learn, as it's a widely choreographed style in the industry.
OPTIONAL ACRO CLASSES
With our optional acro classes, we offer the full training from an early age in a fun and friendly environment, so that children learn the tricks, skills and rhythm awareness to progress through to late teenage years.
We have classes in 4 age brackets, so that you can be assured that there will be classes for your children when they get older, up to student level, with many performance opportunities open to them.
Children get the chance to perform in local events such as the Harlequin Theatre in Redhill, Reigate Christmas Lights, Redhill Belfry, and many more. Some children have also been given the opportunity to dance at the Royal Albert Hall and alongside Strictly Come Dancing's Pasha Kovalev, with unique fusions of contemporary and commercial styles.
CLASSES & AGES
We have 4 stages of commercial street dance (approx ages):
MINIS (ages 4 rec - 7)
JUNIORS (ages 8 - 10)
SENIORS (ages 11 - 14)
STUDENTS (GCSE & A-LEVEL students)
The Reigate School of Ballet and Commercial Dance provides teachers that have performed professionally in a commercial environment. This is extremely beneficial as our dance teachers are aware of the current moves appropriate to the age groups taught and they can demonstrate extremely well, so that children are inspired from the start. WE OFFER TWO FREE TRIALS ALL YEAR ROUND.
We currently offer street dance classes at the following locations:
Colman Redland Centre, Croydon Road, Reigate RH2 0NA
Merstham Hub, Portland Drive, Merstham RH1 3JB
St Marks Church Hall, Alma Road, Reigate RH2 0DA
There is no uniform for Street Dance - loose clothing, trainers (for grip) and lots of energy and enthusiasm.
