School Dance Clubs

Dance ARC are currently working in a number of schools teaching from Nursery up to year 6 on a weekly basis.  We can tailor the classes to the theme for the term or work on productions.  Dance ARC also run their Street Dance and Ballet after school clubs.  


Dance ARC classes provide a structured, inspiring and fun way for any child to learn to dance.


Our workshops encourage, stimulate and are great for before or after school clubs, play days and holiday schemes. The classes are fun, energetic and a good way for children and young adults to keep fit, whilst also giving them the chance to express themselves, build their confidence and be creative!


Activities include choreography, movement based games and dance routines.  They will be introduced to exciting music, moves and routines including Glee, High School Musical, Street, Pop and Musical Theatre!


A variety of dance styles include Street Dance, Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Zumba Kids ®, Cheerleading, and Performing Arts (singing, dancing and acting)




What are the benefits of having a before school dance club?

A child attending a dance club prior to the start of a normal school day is alert, refreshed and ready for lessons.  


What are the benefits of having an after school dance club?

An after school dance club can allow the children to work out the frustrations of the day and by working with a professional dancer, can be inspired to take dance further in later life.  


Will there be an opportunity to link the club with classroom work or assemblies?

Through the workshops there is the opportunity to introduce threads of learning, which includes numeracy, literacy, musicality, communication and teamwork.  Special requests will be included where possible, including assembly and performances for parents.  We ensure a high level of discipline for safe and effective learning.

What qualifications do your dance teachers have?

All our teachers are fully trained and professional dance teachers and/or fitness instructors.  They are DBS checked and hold insurance.


The emphasis is to have fun whilst learning!
