Street/Freestyle

FREESTYLE is enjoyed by all students, it is the trendiest and most popular form of dance in the UK today.

The music can be the latest fast 'beaty' track or a more slow/medium R & B style.

Freestyle earned its name because it is so free. It teaches students how to interpret the track rhythmically through a combination of steps, arm, hand and head movements. They develop their musicality skills and adapt those skills to the chosen music. Because the music can be so diverse we explore all types of current music and some of the past crazes that hit the dance floors in the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's.

STREET dance is incorporated within the Theatre School and falls under the umbrella of Freestyle and is taken with Freestyle examinations.
The Theatre School's Street dance takes any form of popular music – pop to hip hop – and choreographs routines to the beats. We have all seen that only too often, the most successful pop acts have made it big by combining Street dance routines with their tunes and lyrics.
