Our Commercial Dance Company often works towards showcases, flash mobs and competitions. The rehearsals will consist of warm-ups, technique and dance amalgamations such as turns, kicks, leaps and floor work. You will also learn routines of different styles such as street, lyrical contemporary and commercial jazz. 

As well as our company choreographer, students will also have the chance to experience masterclasses with guest choreographers from the industry who will share their professional knowledge with you.

People who join our Commercial Dance Company must have had some previous dance experience. You don’t have to be at an advanced standard but a level of ability is essential. If after the first taster class it is decided this class is too hard you will be able to get a full refund or join another course of interest.
