Explore the magic of movement and self–expression with Stephanie on Saturdays in our new creative contemporary dance class for children. This fun–packed dance class places the emphasis on ‘play’ and ‘creativity’ rather than ‘choreography’.
Stephanie is a freelance choreographer trained in all styles of dance from ballet to tap, modern to contemporary. Graduating from a performing arts course at Central Saint Martins where she developed a uniquely creative approach to dance–making. She has since landed a permanent position in a children–oriented dance company ‘A Truefitt Collective’, teaching dance across various primary schools in North London.
The classes will be divided into two parts to cater to children of different ages:
4 – 7 year olds – 11:15am – 12:15pm
7 – 11 year olds – 12:30pm – 1:30pm
6 Classes – £42
