Jump work together to create their own choreography and develop performance skills working towards performance opportunities in the region.
Bounceback is our audition-only performance company with added emphasis on creativity and technique.
Primarily concentrating on contemporary technique, Incompany also looks
at a variety of styles to develop an understanding of the world of
dance. Performance skills are developed as members work toward local and
regional performance opportunities
What styles of dance are covered?
Contemporary dance is the focus of all of our Youth Performance Companies and Creative Dance classes. Our tutors use their experience and expertise to offer a broad range of Contemporary Dance techniques throughout their teaching. On occasion, performance opportunities can lead to classes exploring other styles. However, contemporary dance remains the sole focus of these classes.
What kind of music is used?
Our classes use a broad variety of music to suit exercises and compliment exploration of practice. This also develops musicality and knowledge of a wide range of styles.
Why do we run these classes as courses?
As our tutor’s focus on building technique and ability, we do ask that you make the commitment to attend. Payment is therefore required, in advance, either half-termly or termly.
When can I join?
We offer taster sessions, for non-audition companies, at the start or end of the term (our term dates are on our website at www.deda.uk.com/classes). This allows you to try a class, before payment, to see if it suits you. There is no commitment to enrol once you have attended a taster unless you wish to do so. Pre-booking is required so please call our Box Office on 01332 370911 to book your taster session.
Once you have decided to join, you can do so at any time of the year but, as payments are half-termly, it ideally needs to be at the start of a new half term. If our classes are working toward a performance opportunity, we may ask you to wait until the following term. However, our Box Office will advise you of this when booking so you do not need to worry if this is not the case.
What safety measures have you put in place for this class?
We have introduced strict health and safety measures that seek to reduce the risk associated with COVID-19. These are in line with Government advice and the requirements of local health authorities. Please click here to find out more.
I can't attend my class, what shall I do?
Credit can be given for a class ticket if you need to cancel due to testing positive for Covid-19 or are experiencing symptoms, but we must have 24 hours notice to do this. The same 24 hours applies if you would like to rearrange yours class for another day. Refunds will only be given in exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the management team.
What happens if there is a local lockdown?
If we have to cancel the class due to COVID-19 guidelines or restrictions, your tickets will be refunded or credited for future use.
