REOPENING - APRIL 2021!

 

We are delighted to share with you our good news!  After being informed by the YMCA that we would not be able to return to their dance studio, we have now secured two new venues.
 
Our Tuesday and Wednesday classes will now be held at the Pumphouse Theatre, Lower High Street and our Saturday classes will be held at Field Junior Annexe Building, Elfrida Road.  Both venues have been very supportive to us over the past two months and we are looking forward to working with them.  
 
 Further details of timetable and venues will be posted soon with the introduction of a NEW high energy class for 4-7 year olds! 
 
As long as government guidance allows, we will be reopening from Tuesday 13th April!
