Take 1 Dance was established in 2008. Managed by Melissa Rose, we began by running weekly dance classes for local families and young people, lead by Willis Rose. Since the days of beginning our classes our dance school has grown and over the years has become one of the most successful dance schools in the country.
Take 1 Dance provides an engaging and positive experience for all our dance students. We provide an environment in which new dancers feel comfortable and existing dancers are able to realise and achieve their potential. Our structured dance programme teaches a wide range of Street dance styles, as well as Ballet, Tap, Contemporary and Gymnastics, promoting important life skills that are necessary for a child’s development. These include building confidence, raising awareness of health and fitness, instilling good character and developing communication skills. For those who wish to take their training further we provide unique opportunities in training and development on all kinds of platforms from workshops, performances, residentials and competitions. This is all in addition for those wishing to enjoy dance as a hobby, for which we provide a variety of open classes welcoming all levels of experience. Naturally, there are numerous positive benefits for people who join our dance classes, but more importantly, it’s also really good fun!
