Our Spooky Halloween Party
With our dance competition looming for our Selects, we came up with a fantastic fundraiser just in time for halloween. The kids had a ball!!
Coffee Afternoon Success!
Our coffee afternoon went down a treat over the weekend! Lots of people came to support us in our efforts to raise money so our Selects can attend and perform at various events up and down the country. We raised £176.65 on the day which is a great start to our fundraising! Everybody had a great time and we can't wait until our next event!
In Step Selects Trip
Yet another great weekend for our Selects! We were off to Glasgow early Saturday morning to watch the UDO World Championships of Street Dance. This was a great opportunity for our dancers to see the best street dancers in the world, feel inspired and gain some experience of such an event which we may venture into in the future.
Our Selects were able to take a locking workshop with Calvin Francis. Calvin has danced for artists including JLS, Cheryl Cole, Alexandra Burke, Leona Lewis, Sugababes, MOBO Awards, Kano, Plan B, Brit Awards, X- Factor, Miss Dynamite, Mel B, and Latoyah Jackson as well as being a current teacher at Pineapple Dance Studios where I first met him. Our Selects did a great job of keeping up at Calvin's workshop, dancing along side some of the best street dancers in the world right now!
Over the summer break we had some wonderful Disney Dress Up Workshops for our younger dancers. We danced, we played games, we coloured in and we had LOTS of FUN!
We had a fabulous day of workshops from Megan's Gymtastic! Over the summer holidays we love to get different things going on at our studio for our dancers and this was great fun!
Select Jr. Auditions
26 auditions took place over the weekend to get one of the 15 spots in our Select Jr. group. Everyone did such a great job and it was a tough choice. The Selects have now been chosen and we can't wait to get started next month.
In Step LIVE
On the 18th of December, 97 In Steppers took to the stage at the Easterbrook Hall to perform in front of 400 people in the audience. Our dancers did an amazing job of showing what they can do and it was a great night!
Taking a trophy home from our first ever competition!
Our Selects spent the weekend at Craig Tara Holiday Park taking part in various workshops, watching performances and of course competing in the senior street dance section where they took home a trophy for second place!
The Selects did our dance school proud over the weekend and are now working hard in rehearsals for our dance show next month- 'In Step- LIVE'.
Watch our performance from the Young Stars Festival competition below:
Due to popular demand and growing class numbers, we have added another 3 classes to our timetable. We have another class for our 5-7 age group on a Monday 4pm-5pm and we also have another class for our 7-9 age group each Wednesday 4pm-5pm. Make sure to get in touch to book in!
We are so excited to announce that we will be launching our BOYS ONLY Street Dance Class for ages 5 to 13 in October. Make sure to get in touch to book your child's 2 week trial as they will fill up FAST!
Another fantastic performance from our In Step Selects over the weekend at Youth Beatz '16. We were lucky enough to be the first people to enter the park with two performances- the very first performance of the day and the last performance too which brought in a huge audience!
Our In Step Selects performed on Guid Nychburris Day and did a great job of entertaining the crowed!
Selects turned heads performing two dances for the crowed on Dumfries' Guid Nychburris day. They drew in plenty of interest for our dance school and showed Dumfries what we are all about!
Well done guys. Keep up the great work!
In Step seen A LOT of talent over the weekend!
On Friday, myself and guest judge Robyn Gracie auditioned seniors for a place in our 16/17 Selects. Each and every dancer really impressed us and it was not an easy decision to narrow the numbers down.
I am so happy to announce that we came to a decision and have selected 12 dancers to represent In Step for 16/17. There are many exciting things to come and I can't wait to get stuck in and get to work with my new group of Selects after the summer break.
