Dance with Dash

Creating a life long love of Dance in a supportive inclusive environment.

Learn a skill, make a friend, have fun!

Pre-school Classes:

Dance with Dash Offers Jill Bridgers Melody Movement® syllabus from the age of 18 months.

These Melody Bear® Classes introduce children to dance from a young age using the natural actions of the body, such as running, walking, jumping, hopping, skipping and galloping. It’s structured to aid children s physical development, co ordination, spacial awareness, creativity and self expression, along with fundamental curriculum learning such as counting, colour and shape recognition.  Melody Bears® 1st ballet is then offered from 4 years as a transition into bbodance syllabus classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern and Jazz.

Syllabus Dance classes:

Sarah is a registered teacher and member of bbodance and follows their syllabus in Ballet, Tap, Modern and Jazz. This enables children to progress though the grades building strong dance technique and taking bbodance examinations with an external examiner attending, recording this progression. It takes roughly 12- 18 months to achieve a grade and examinations/qualifications are part of the national skills Qualifications framework and grades work towards levels 1, 2 and 3 with level 4 being diploma level.  After examination candidates receive certificates and reports issued by bbodance.  To date Dance with Dash has 100% pass rate with many achieving top results.

Adult Classes:

Adult Classes are relaxed with an emphasis on fun. There are no age limits and all are welcome. These classes are not syllabus classes and there is no formal assessment. The aim is to learn a new technique whilst keeping active, meeting new people and having a laugh with friends. We recently took part along with younger students of Dance with Dash in the Children in Need Tapathon, in collaboration with The Performers Project.  Helping to raise thousands of pounds for the children in Need,  whilst having a huge amount of fun, and becoming a much loved annual family event.

Dance with Dash also offers regular performance opportunities, whether its at a local fete informal end of term sharing or our bi annual show! Everyone gets to take part in some way.

Sarah is also available to lead dance in local schools and Nursery’s on a one off or regular basic. Formal or more creative/choreographic basis.
