Our Stage & the City’s resident and premier Commercial Dance Company often works towards showcases, flash mobs and competitions. It is made up of adults of all different ages and standards.

During this 12 week course you will learn and rehearse a combination of dance routines for our up and coming performances, including future dance competitions and Stage & the City’s 5th Anniversary charity showcase.

You will work on routines consisting of different styles such as street, lyrical contemporary and commercial jazz. The fact that most members will be restricted in terms of floor space will be taken into consideration.

The choreography that you will learn from your online course will also be videoed as part of a tutorial for you to get extra rehearsal time at home, as well as your online course with us.

Members 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 you are not quite there you can join our Commercial dance classes on a Tuesday evening which are suitable for beginners.
