Our junior class returns this year with a new start time of 4pm. Students will learn dance basics, foundations and choreography as well as freestyle movements to help them explore the different ways their bodies react to music. The skills and choreography learnt will all be put together for a mid-year performance. This class is suitable for 7-12yr olds.

Important Note: If students miss 2 lessons consecutively they will be removed from the class list as non attendance interupts the progress of other students.
