Musical Theatre Class - Spaces!

The Musical Theatre class is open to all Fordingbridge Dance Studios students and their friends. The class teaches performance and showmanship, as well as singing and acting. 

Mondays from 3.30 to 4.00pm at Avonway. 

For students who already attend Ballet, plus one other subject, this class is free! So, for example, if you attend Ballet and Tap, the class is free. For those who only attend Ballet, the cost is £2. Those who do not attend dance classes at Fordingbridge Dance Studios is charged at £4.

The sessions explores types of musical, from the West End musicals such as Frozen, Annie, Mary Poppins and Joseph to the classics of the Golden Age and modern masterpieces.

As you already know, Fordingbridge Dance Studios values every student, and cares greatly about their learning journey and enjoyment. FDS works to ensure that classes are educational, fun and inspire confidence for life.

Boogie Ballet with your Baby

Come and enjoy a fitness class with your baby. This unique class gives you the opportunity to enjoy a dance class that is a fun, bonding activity with your baby and will help you get back into shape.

The moves are made up of a variety of dance genres, from ballet-based core training, which helps with your core strength and essential for recovery after labour, to modern jazz and disco to take you back to your clubbing days.

For the class we suggest you wear a baby carrier that is comfortable for you and your baby, and for you to move in. You will need to bring a yoga mat or a blanket for floor work, and for baby to lie on. You can bring a pram or car seat for baby to rest in if you wish.

Clothing-wise wear something you are comfortable in, and trainers or ballet/jazz shoes for your feet.

You will be able to dance at your pace. Please feel free to stay for a social catch up after class.

Thursdays 1.45pm-2.25pm 
Avonway Community Centre, Fordingbridge

£5 per session, pay as you come.

This is followed by a Boogie Baby Disco suitable from birth upwards to those who are not yet out of nappies to have fun and try some dance moves with their parent/carers.

Thursdays 2.25pm - 2.50pm 
Avonway Community Centre, Fordingbridge

£3 per session, pay as you come. (or £1 if you do the Boogie Ballet class before)

Please note, hair has to be tied back so it is safe to dance. Hair must be off the face and tied securely. If students have long hair, this needs to be in a bun so it does not hit the face, or get tangled against anything else. There is a page to teach you how to create the perfect bun!
