Hippodrome Youth Dance

Hippodrome Youth Dance

Run in partnership with The D Project, Hippodrome Youth Dance includes Mix It Up Dance for ages 7-11, progressing to Contemporary Dance for ages 11 and over. Until January 2018, sessions take place at Hummersknott School.  

Mix It Up Dance for ages 7-11

Mix It Up introduces children to lots of different dance styles, from musical theatre to street dance, whilst developing a strong technical foundation. It stretches the creative imaginations of the
children and encourages them to develop their own choreography. A fantastic class for children new to dance, or those who just can’t stop moving!

Contemporary Dance for ages 11+

Contemporary dance is a fluid expressive style that can create a variety of performance work – from high octane energy to soft, gentle movement. These fun creative classes equip young people with excellent dance skills and techniques, working towards exciting performances opportunities. Young people are encouraged to develop their own creative ideas and choreography, and regularly have the chance to perform.
