Db4dance School


db4dance classes are for children with or without previous dance experience who wish to learn in an encouraging, fun, but also a challenging environment. There are no exams but the classes cover the same level of work. Children gain a great understanding and appreciation of different genres and themed music.

db4dance does not have a strict uniform policy but requires children to wear suitable clothing for the classes. Parents are able to watch classes, as long as the children are not distracted.

Informal "performances" are held for family and friends at the end of each year.

Our dance classes are held at:
Brooklyn Community Centre, 18 Harrison St, Brooklyn
Vogelmorn Hall, 13 Vennell St, Brooklyn
