Has your child shown an interest in contemporary dance having watched one of the many TV talent shows? (We certainly have a fan in our house!) Read on to find out more about the new, exciting class Elevations Academy are launching this week.
Elevations Academy is already well established in Chapel Allerton providing over 50 classes every week in a variety of styles from Ballet to Break Dance, for the young (independently from 3yrs of age) to the young at heart (yes, their oldest student attending tap is 83 years old!).
From time to time they run special workshops and courses alongside their timetable to appeal to any newcomers or those who just simply want to try a different style of dance.
Recently, contemporary dance has become more and more popular, probably because this style of dance is now seen so frequently on the latest TV talent shows and whilst Elevations already offers two thriving Contemporary Classes weekly in Chapel Allerton on Tuesdays at St Martins Institute (near opposite Chapel Allerton Hospital) (9-13yrs group is at 4.45pm and the older 14-18 yrs group is at 6.15pm), the Academy continues to get interest for a younger session to be included on the schedule.
Hayley Byrne, (programme director) added; “We have had a lot of interest for a younger contemporary class, so we thought why not start off with a pre-summer course to seek demand, and give the chance for our young people of the community (both members and non-members) to enjoy the gorgeous style of contemporary dance. We have a fantastic 10-week programme running from Thursday 19th April targeted specifically at Primary School ages 6-11 yrs (year 1-year 6). If the course proves popular and the younger students enjoy this style we will then put on a regular weekly class for our under 9’s on the new schedule in September 2018 as well as running some summer workshops.
The cost for 10 weeks is just £25.00 (£2.50 per class) for members, and £30.00 (£3.00 per class) for non members.
