LOVE TO DANCE CLASSES

ZUMBA

ZUMBA GOLD

Enjoy international music with a Latin feel but with a little less bounce than Zumba Fitness then this is for you.

Let the music take over as we strengthen and condition our muscles but let the hips flow in the process. We dance, we sing, we laugh. Four mornings a week so take your pick.

ZUMBA TONING

Still embracing the sass of Zumba but working on isolated muscles using light hand weights.

If you want to work that core and smash those squats whilst still embracing the love of music that makes you want to move then this is for you! Mid week and Weekend classes.

JUNIOR DANCE & DRAMA

DANCE MASH-UP

These classes are designed to introduce your children to various dance styles. For them to try street to musical theatre, lyrical to Latin. We have fun, build confidence, dance together and let the energy take over.

Currently these are held as before and after school clubs at Christchurch Infant School, Christchurch Junior School, Chesterpark Primary School.

If your child attends these schools contact me for details. If your school would like a Dance Mash-Up club contact me to go on the waiting list.

PURE DANCE

From ages 5-16 my Pure Dance classes offer street dance and classical dance evening classes.

Children have the opportunity to all compete should they wish or they can simply come and learn new skills whilst making new friendships.

Please read my reviews from various parents who have children attending my range of Pure classes.

DRAMA

Saturday’s are all about embracing our inner creativity whilst adopting a different theme each week.

From Shrek to High School Musical and Greatest Showman to Pirates of the Caribbean. We act, sing, dance and have a blast. For all primary age children.

A wonderful drop in class to work around your family commitments.

Our school has worked with Karen for many years and cannot speak highly enough of her

Our school has worked with Karen for many years and cannot speak highly enough of her. She has an incredible way of getting even the most under-confident children to dance with her and tailors what she does to make sure that all of their needs are met. Karen is full of compassion and totally inspirational and makes such a difference to all of the children she works with.

My daughter has also strengthened friendships through the dance classes.

My daughter attends 2 LTD dance classes. She loves dancing and I've noticed her confidence grow since joining the classes. I love the fact that she is enjoying physical exercise in the classes but because she wants to be good, she is also practicing at home. The classes combine physical exercise with developing social skills; building team work and respect and encouragement for other children. My daughter has also strengthened friendships through the dance classes.

Karen has been working with our school for a number of years and due to her dedication, passion and enthusiasm the classes just keep growing. The dance mash up classes are always incredibly popular and a brilliantly lively way of engaging pupils from every background, both boys and girls. Karen builds excellent relationships with the families she works for and she always goes above and beyond her role as a dance teacher to truly develop the confidence, resilience and maturity of every pupil in her care.
