Classes

Introduction to the classes:-

Steps for the Future runs two weekly classes in dance and music (we have had to temporarily stop the drama class whilst we reorganise our class set-up, but if you are interested please contact us) - see below for more information.  These classes run throughout the week at:

What happens in the dance class?

Dance classes run on a Monday each week between 10:00am and 3:00pm.  Students choose their own music and decide whether they want to dance on their own, in pairs or in groups.  Although the actual content of the sessions are student-led, all classes are structured with clear boundaries and expectations, both for individuals and groups. 

What happens in the drama class?  (PLEASE NOTE THIS CLASS HAS TEMPORARILY BEEN CLOSED WHILST WE REORGANISE OUR CLASS SETUP).

Watch this space for further developments...

What happens in the music class?

Music classes run on a Friday each week between 10:00am and 1:00pm. The class has a focus on experimenting with the various musical instruments, singing, making music together, learning new skills, improvisation and generally having a jolly good noisy time!!

Don't forget: We regularly bring in professionals to each class to do wonderful workshops!  

If you are interested in joining any of these classes and/or looking for more information, please get in touch.

In the dance class our students indulge in their creative abilities in a safe and friendly environment that enables them to work individually and in groups to dance however they like! (maybe with a little guidance, here and there!) 

We often feature guest dance instructors in our dance class who help the students explore many different and exciting styles of dance.

 
 

The sessions are "student-led" - i.e. they discuss and agree what they will dance and perform next - up to them, we don't tell them what to do.  Here, they are in group discussions deciding on their next song with volunteers helping them on their way (below)...

The music class helps by not only the development of listening and teamwork skills, but by providing students  with the opportunity to show their creative side and have fun with the sounds they produce!

Within the class, there is the opportunity to participate in many aspects of music such as; drumming playing the ukulele as well as experimenting with a variety of other instruments. We have a music voice coach, Ruth, to do music workshops with the music group.
