Teaching dance in the community

Second year students have been teaching some excellent community classes this year.  From jazz to contemporary, tap to commercial, we’ve had a spectrum of great classes.  Liam Gillespie of the blog live and love Teesside attended several classes, documenting the experience for his blog:

“Bearing in mind that dance is essentially about expressing yourself, my biggest piece of advice would be to show a bit of flair and panache.

It’s when I relaxed my body a little bit and started to ease into the dancing with more enjoyment that it actually became a little easier.

So despite struggling with the faster movements at first, I started to enjoy the dancing more and that’s when my actual footwork began to become less obtuse and more natural. The students hosting the event were always on hand to help me through any part I couldn’t grasp which made things a whole lot easier.“
