OUR SATURDAY CLASSES IN BOLD ABOVE USED TO BE WALK IN BUT DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 PANDEMIC WE CANNOT ACCEPT WALK INS ANY LONGER. PLEASE CONTACT US BEFORE TURNING UP TO DANCEMAX AS YOU MUST NOW BE BOOKED IN AND BUBBLED IN A SECURE GROUP.
We begin at DanceMax by teaching our new beginners PopDance. This is a fun and friendly dance style with which our children can learn to become confident performers and lay a foundation of technique and flexibility. Our PopDance classes are suitable for any child with or without experience in dance.
PopDance Tots is our baby class for the littlest dancers! Ages 2 & 3 years are welcome here to start their dancing journey. Our class is half an hour of fun songs, nursery rhymes, lots of movement and dancing and the beginnings of technical steps like skips, jumps and stretching. They begin to experience a class setting of following rules, taking turns, listening to instruction and being part of a group - all valuable tools to move them forward in their personal development as well as improving their dancing skills.
PopDance Kids classes are for our older dancers, ages 4 and above. We have 45 minutes of popular, up to date music to get us moving! The class focuses a little more on stretching and steps (specific jumps, kicks and moves) to enable your dancer to move forward. We learn routines to upbeat songs that your child can carry on from class and perform to any audience! This class is friendly and non pressured - if your child likes to perform with us at local shows or parties they are more than welcome to, but it is not required. You can just enjoy the class weekly for fun and progression and make some new friends.
All of our classes are friendly and inclusive - we have dancers of all abilities and will accomodate any child where possible. Please do not hesistate to ask if you think your child may need adaptations or extra help - it will always be provided without any fuss!
We have two successful competition classes at DanceMax. Our pre-competition team meet on Saturdays to learn the basics of freestyle disco competition. This class is based in flexibility training and technique - dancers will begin to learn the basic steps needed to partiticpate in exams and competition within freestyle. These steps include jumps, turns, kicks, spins, runs, and more. They must be dedicated to stretch regularly and improve flexibility in order to excute some of the more difficult moves.
This class is suitable for new dancers, although we recommend over the age of 6 is appropriate for the level of work. If your little one is in one of our other classes then they may make the move at a younger age. This class really focuses on the basics and the technique needed to move past a fun, once a week class and prepare for a higher level of committment to dancing - exam, competition, etc.
Our Elite competition team is 40 strong and compete around the country winning titles and trophies. These dancers train three times a week and dedicate a lot of their time to perfecting their dancing to be able to compete at the highest level. We attend local competitions most months and go away 2/3 times a year to weekend festival competitions. We have World Champions, East of England Champions, team group winners as well as too many individual titles to mention.
If you have aspirations of joining our Elite team then we ask you complete a number of months in our pre-competition class to cement your basics and lay the foundation for being able to move upwards to the harder level of work. If you have competed in Freestyle before you may be able to join this class straight away - please contact Kirstin in this instance.
Dance & Play!
We run two sessions a week of Dance & Play! This toddler session is aimed at little ones 4 and under who can move on their feet - although younger babies are more than welcome and will enjoy the music and toys just as much. We do up to half an hour of nursery rhymes, actions songs, moving and singing before an hour and a half playtime with our wide selection of toys, slides, ride on's and books. There are suitable toys for all ages. Children receive a biscuit and drink and adults are welcome to have a hot drink and biscuit also. This session encourages parents to join in with their little person and really enjoy the dancing and singing together as a way of introducing them to movement and dance.
