What you should bring.

You need to be able to move when you dance, so please wear comfortable clothing (jogging bottoms/shorts/leggings and a t shirt/vest).  Footwear should be flat with a flexible sole (dance shoes, pumps or trainers).  If footwear is inappropriate, students will be asked to dance in bare feet.  Don’t forget a drink!

If you’d like to order an Empire Dance Centre t-shirt, please ask me during class. Prices are £6 each, £7.50 when personalised with a name.

    I have a 4 year old daughter that lives dancing she has tried ballet but she didn’t enjoy it. She knows all up to date music and feel street dance will be better. I know the class is for 10 years and under and wanted to check that she wouldn’t be to young for it

      Hi Emma, I have had children as young as three, four and five years old in the class, so it entirely depends on the individual child and their attention span. It is definitely worth her coming to have a go. Routines all start quite simple and I constantly demonstrate at the front so she would always have someone to copy. Hope that helps and if you need any other information, please get in touch. Laura

    Hi my daugter is 8 years old and loves dancing around the living room to all the latest pop songs. She doesn’t want ballet or street dance as she can’t do handstands etc so I wondered if these classes would be suitable for her.
    Many thanks

      Hi Vicky, the best class for your daughter would be 8yrs and over at 6.15pm on Tuesdays at Marist Parish Hall, Cottingham Road. The class is a mixture of freestyle disco dance, slow and street dance. We don’t do any acrobatics in beginner classes so she wouldn’t need to worry about handstands. Hope that helps!

      Hi Courtney,

      I have a beginner dance class at 6.15pm on Tuesdays at Marist Parish Hall on Cottingham Road. It is for 8yrs and over and is a mix of street dance, freestyle disco and slow. If you look on our Facebook page, the latest video I’ve posted is of that class in action. Hope that helps!

      Hi Rachel, the class is for mixed ability. We’ve had total beginners in their fifties and ex-dancers in their twenties. The focus is more on dance for fitness than technique – anyone is welcome! Hope that helps, Laura :)

      Hi Fraser, I don’t run any classes for your age group that are solely street. The only class which is purely street is an adult class every Tuesday night at 7pm at Marist Parish Hall. It’s a small class, all female at the moment. You’re welcome to come and try it out :)

      Hi Jenny

      The only class I have for your age group is an Adult class which is mixed ability. If you already have considerable experience, you may find it too easy.

      Hi Sam,

      So sorry I must have missed your message with it being after the end of term. We have beginner classes in freestyle disco, lyrical slow and street dance every Tuesday and Wednesday. Tues at Marist Parish Hall 5.30pm 3 – 7 yrs, 6.15pm 8yrs +. Weds at St Albans Church Hall 4.30pm 3 – 7 yrs, 5.15pm 8yrs +. The younger age group class is more of a fun one with dance games and routines. Older class is more routine based. Please let me know if you’d like to bring him along :)
