Class description

If you want a class that allows you to dance in a way that’s ‘out of the box’ then this fresh thinking class is for you. FUEL is a boys only class that meets every Saturday afternoon at The Place, we know  that your Saturday mornings are for sleeping and we also know that you want to be part of something that’s creative; something that allows you to express yourself and move with confidence, so that’s why we created FUEL.

You can expect to jump, swerve, stride and bounce - learn and develop your skills in contemporary dance with like-minded boys who want to push themselves creatively and work together to maximise stamina, strength and individuality.

What will the class actually involve?
Classes start with a warm up which focuses on engaging the body, for example feet exercises, so we are balanced and articulate, floor work to warm up our spines and swing exercises to prepare our arms. This section of class is called ‘technique’ and also involves short routines and sequences to start working on musicality, timing and movement memory.
The latter section of the class embraces your creativity, working in small groups and individually, learning how to create choreography through creative tasks and games to start finding your unique way of moving.
The average age of young dancers in this class is: 11-16 years


Open Level - No previous dance/movement experience needed just enthusiasm and comfy clothes.
