Gateway Juniors is a weekly class that gives children aged  7 - 12 yrs the chance to learn dance technique and develop their natural curiosity for movement. Although we work on contemporary technique, our emphasis for this class is on creativity. Young people are encouraged to explore their creativity through dance using stories and themes from a range of starting points. Taking part in our Gateway Juniors classes provides students with an excellent foundation to progress onto the Gateway Youth Group.


What to expect:


Each class begins with a fun warm-up game to develop confidence, social interaction and team-building skills. Dancers learn new steps through short movement sequences and work on improving their technique. The majority of the class is spent on exploring creative tasks in a relaxed and supportive environment. Dancers will learn to work independently as well as in small groups to choreograph their own sequences inspired by a stimulus. Everyone is encouraged to share their work and collaborate to create a choreographed dance throughout the term. Dancers are given several opportunities to perform each year in professional settings and local theatres.


Weekly classes take place on Tuesdays, 5:30pm to 6:30, during school term times. Tuition fees are based on a rate of £4.50 per lesson. We offer the first taster session free of charge.
