Dancefest - A Busy Summer Of Dance

This summer's getting very busy and we wanted to let you know about some of the things we have coming up in the next few weeks.
Dancefest do the Jiving Lindy Hop at Upton Jazz Festival

Dancefest's Fusion youth group have teamed up with the Best of Young Jazz (BoYJ) to work with internationally acclaimed Swing dance company, The Jiving Lindy Hoppers, to create a performance for Upton Jazz Festival.

They'll be part of the parade at 11.30am and will perform at 1.45pm and 3pm near the BoYJ stage - come along to see them if you're heading to the festival!
Audition for W'ire Youth Dance Company (Year 7 to 21 years old)

There's still time to apply. You can find out more and download the application form from our website.

W'ire (Worcestershire) Youth Dance Company has been running since September 2003 and has earned a reputation for excellence. It's for motivated dancers with creative and technical potential who want to improve their skills and perform.
Do you have any unwanted toys or games?

We’re taking part in a fundraising bazaar organised by Worcester Rotary Club on 5 September and we’re aiming to raise money to buy new equipment for our children’s classes.

If you have any toys and games that you no longer want, we'd be ever so grateful for them. You can drop them at The Angel Centre in Worcester or give them to your dance teacher. If you have any questions, please email Poppy. We’ll be collecting things until the end of this term.

Class Evaluations

If you've been taking part in our classes this term, you'll get an evaluation form in class and you can also complete it online here.

Your feedback helps us such a lot.
