During the second week of the 2021 summer school holidays, Next Door Dance in partnership with Dance4, delivered a three-day summer school for children aged 6 to 11 years old.

The summer school featured daily warm up games to start their day. After an energising warm up they enjoyed a day of fun creative sessions designing and creating t-shirts and working alongside dance artists: Hayley Corah, Zoe Chambers and Rickay Hewitt-Martin. This eventually built into creating a wonderful performance, which was filmed on the final day and shared with their family and friends.

The sessions also led to our summer school attendees completing and achieving the Arts Award Discover and gaining their certificate.

They also gained a taster of our 7 to 11 years programme, Jump Start. Jump Start provides creative dance experiences for children living in Nottingham and supports our aim to nurture young people who have potential and ambition in dance.

Jump Start classes take place 4.15 till 5.15pm each Monday during school term-time. For more infomation and to register your child for Jump Start click here. If you have any questions around Jump Start please email [email protected]ance4.co.uk or call the office on 0115 924 2016.
