NEW ‘After School’ Dance Classes!!!

3 weeks ago

commercial colourNEW ‘After School’ Dance Classes!!

We are thrilled to announce our new Tuesday and Thursday ‘After School’ Dance classes in Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap & Commercial at Moorside Community Centre in Thatcham!  

We already teach dance in our Mini Theatre School and Saturday Theatre School sessions on Saturdays and these classes are really creative and allow pupils to explore lots of different styles and to prepare routines for our annual West End performance opportunity.

Our new classes will be for 3-18 year olds who want to take individual dance subjects and these classes will not only complement the dance class our current pupils get at Saturday Theatre School, but they will enable our pupils to work on really developing sound technique in specific dance genres.

The hits & the highlights

 

These new classes will be taken by Erin Tingle, who we are delighted to welcome to Read Theatre School, and towards the end of their first term of dance classes,pupils will perform in The Hits & The Highlights at Arlington Arts Centre on Sunday 30th June.
