Thank you so much for Freya's taster session back with Street dancing. Thom was amazing. I will say though Freya has a habit of giving the thumbs up πŸ‘ when she is okay but she wouldn't admit some moves she was struggling with. Yep she can be very stubborn lol πŸ™ˆ. She is very tired though from school which didn't help but we had a chat after and explained she needs to say if she is struggling rather than staying quiet. She does give herself a hard time and it was only her first lesson. I told her to stop being so hard on herself πŸ’• x
I am not sure If I can write a second review but here is my new review xx

My daughter has been attending classes at Dancewise for nearly 4 years now, in that time she has grown in confidence, learnt new skills, joined new classes I never thought she would be interest in, took part in shows which are amazing to watch, became part of the elite team and has progressed to becoming an Inspirers Assistant and helps her teachers in classes with the smaller aged children. Dancing is a huge part of her life and she has made incredible memories and friends for life.

Dancewise is a lovely, supporting environment with a real family feel. Teachers are professional, experienced, and friendly making sure all their pupils are happy and you can see their passion for teaching.

Anyone can to learn to dance - whatever your level, Dancewise can help you with your new journey with Passion and Positivity.

"Bumblebees" - 26/01/2023

"Bumblebees" -

Throwback to 2015 and this ADORABLE "Bumblebee" routine by Stargazer Irish

Those wings!! πŸ₯Ί

"Bumblebees" - "Bumblebees" from the Throwback segment of the 2015 show "Next 10"Choreography - Alison Jones


Why is it SO hard to motivate yourself....?

Especially to do something you LOVE! ❀️

We spend A LOT of time answering this question for our students when it comes to practice. We all know:

πŸ—£ "Practice makes perfect"

Totally TRUE. So everyone one just does it, right? πŸ€”

Obviously not or we'd all be Usain Bolt ⚑️πŸ₯‡

Something happens between LOVING something in class.... and being motivated to practice it again the next day

πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ Here's the secret.... 🀫

EVERYONE looks at it the wrong way! It's not about ADDING more, it's about SUBTRACTING...

❌ Distractions
❌ When to do it
❌ What to do
❌ Space
❌ Fatigue....

πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ Here's the solution....

We have PROVEN solutions that we teach to all of our kids.

They are all to do with SUBTRACTING the excuses that get in our way, and REVEALING the success when we do so.

1. Little and Often
2. Habit Habit Habit
3. What's the WHY??
4. The Progress Process
5. Reward the work

The ones that take them and make them happen become GREAT

(The others have all the tools they need, as well as all of our support, so that when it clicks.... and they are ready..... they will be great too)

Here's one guy who get's that PROGRESS is down to PROCESS.

He's taken our solutions and run with them πŸ”₯

And the results.... Well, we'll let him speak for himself...


Did You Know....?

πŸ‘‰ Costume Included πŸ‘ˆ

Performance is big for us! We give students an opportunity to perform live on stage - and what performance is complete without a dazzling costume?

Well your child's costume is 100% included.

No surprise costume fees!



Happy birthday Jack

We’re celebrating Jack’s birthday! He’s a member of our street crew Shino-B and had one wish this birthday…… to play the crash mat game.

We train β€˜em weird in Shino-B πŸ€ͺπŸ₯·



Throwback to 2019's show "Within Us All" and the Classic Video Games Number!

That Legend of Zelda remix!

What did you think of it?


Why don't Dancewise enter festivals, competitions and do formal exams?

Can you show me a level 10 in creativity?
Or a 3 in artistic expression?
How about a distinction level in soulfulness?

It's tough right? We don't judge people who want to do exams and competitions at all - simply, we want to train dancers to get on stage and blow audiences away.

Here's Hip Hop pioneer Mr Wiggles who shares our views!


Did You Know....?

πŸ‘‰ Perform Every Year πŸ‘ˆ

Performance is big for us! We give students an opportunity to perform live on stage every year! But this isn't a 'studio showcase' performance. Each one is created to take the audience into a new world, while giving our students their time to shine!




Throwback to 2015's show "Next 10" with this reimagining of Matthew Bourne's The Car Man

The guys enjoyed performing this routine - can you tell? πŸ˜‚


Boys who dance mean a lot to Dancewise!

Even in today's day and age it's still tricky for a young boy to say "I want to learn to dance"

Hopefully some words of advice from one of the legends and pioneers of Hip Hop dance will inspire.... and keep your ears out for his first steps inside the studio it. It may surprise you!




"Always remain a student"

It's a mantra we live by! The teachers at Dancewise LIVE by this mantra and do our best to pass this on to all our students.

And isn't it a better way to be? Always on a journey of discovery, growth and development 😊

Have a listen to Mr Wiggles give his opinion on young dancers taking their skills to the next level!


Did You Know....?

πŸ‘‰ Dancewise, the Studio for... Breaking πŸ‘ˆ

Breaking (you might have heard of 'Breakdance') is the foundation of East cost street dance styles. Our students can throw down with the best of them! We empower them to Break with confidence and freedom through gentle encouragement and step by step lessons.



From everyone at Dancewise, we hope you have a happy, successful and fulfilling 2023 ❀️

We're back in the office from today and looking forward to welcoming everyone back next week!

If you've sent us an e-mail we're working our way towards you 😊 you'll hear from us soon!

In the meantime...

πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ What are you wishing for in 2023??

⭐️ Making big positive changes to my child's confidence
⭐️ Adding a new group of friends to my child's life who have their back no matter what
⭐️ Taking up a hobby that they look forward to each week and leave excited to talk about
⭐️ Seeing my child build positive and healthy habits that bring them joy
⭐️ Becoming part of a community of other friendly parents who all want the best for our children and champion them

If any of those things are on your wish list then we are be able to help ⭐️❀️😊

Visit us at and let us share how we can help



From our Dancewise family to yours - wishing you everything you wish for yourself in 2023.

With ALL our Dancewise Love! ###



Throwback to 2019 and the awesomely creepy "Azkaban" in the Potter segment! Seeing the Dementors come to life once the dancers had their costumes was a treat we won't forget in a hurry!


Teacher and student dance-off

We LOVE this!

Dance brings us together, helps us communicate without the burden of words and let’s us share what is in our hearts

We can’t wait to start back in 2023! Big stuff is coming!


Confidence forms the basis of everything we do at the studio.

Watching students grow, overcome challenges and prove to themselves that they are stronger than they ever imagined is the best reward we could imagine.

Have a listen to professional classical dancer (and ex White Swan for Matthew Bourne) talk about dealing with pre show nerves


Did You Know....?

πŸ‘‰ Dancewise, the Studio for... Hip Hop πŸ‘ˆ

Our Hip Hop classes teach classic party dances (running man, cabbage patch, Gucci etc), the grooves that make Hip Hop look so iconic, plus the up to date movements you see in any stadium show or music video. Each class brings the party vibes!



Merry Christmas everyone!

We hope it's filled with joy and celebration! We can't wait to see all of our dancers in the new year and meet even more of you for fun, laughter, giggles, dance and of course passion and positivity!




3 days to go πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ»β˜ƒοΈπŸ“†πŸ₯°πŸŽ

Today we hear from.... Thom

Thom is our artistic director and one of our street dance teachers

This is a great memory.... or handful of memories! We do so much throughout the year for our students to get involved in, and each one of them is chosen to create memories for our students, our team and our families!

As you can see, all of these things make memories for everyone from the newest students, co owners of the studio like Thom

When we get a chance to be together and do what we love, thats when memories are made!

Lovely memory Thom!


4 days to go... πŸŽ„β„οΈπŸŽ…πŸ»β˜ƒοΈπŸŽ

Today we hear from.... Molly!

"from when we found out what we were doing to the final finalΓ©"

We loved reading this memory. Molly is a Dancewiser through and through and perfectly summed up what gets us out of bed in her memory.

A whole lot of time with our Dancewise family

Personal challenge and triumph

Giggles and fun with our friends

Live performances

Making memories

That's it! 😊

It's simple, elegant, and us ❀️

Fab memory Molly


Throwback to 2019 and the oh too cute "Cowboys" number in the Lost segment - how much did they deserve that audience moment?!

Could you have stopped yourself joining in too?


5 days to go... β„οΈβ˜ƒοΈπŸ“†πŸŽ„πŸŽ

Today we hear from.... Niamh!

"I was so proud of myself and worked so hard for this..."

Motivation is a funny thing; It's very misunderstood!

We all see it as a spark, a moment, a surge, a revelation, an ignition... We've all experienced those sparks and started a new hobby, craft project, DIY job... then what happens when the spark goes.... uh ohhhh

Motivation is a spark....

Pfffft... RUBBISH!

πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰ Motivation is a result!!

Stay with me.

Motivation is a product of having done something, seen some results, done it some more and applied yourself a little more, seen even more results.... and on and on!

Niamh says as much here. She worked so hard and look, she got the result! These moments are amazing to see! We were so SO proud of Niamh for her portrayal of Finn in S.U.P.E.R. and this picture sums it up perfectly.

It was taken during her bows in the finale when the room erupted into applause. If that ain't transforming lives through PASSION and POSITIVITY then I don't know what is!

Great memory Niamh!


Who likes rejection??

No one does!

But there are tools, tips and tricks we can teach to help anyone cope and deal with set backs, failure and challenge


Pro dancers live with rejection as part of their life (lots of dancers going for a handful of jobs) so we've asked Will Bozier (pro classical dancer and Matthew Bourne regular) for his top tips on dealing with negativity and failure


We know, we know!

It’s not dance but…. Chase your dreams! And when an opportunity opens itself to you….. kick the ball into the goal!!


6 days to go... β€οΈπŸŽ„β˜ƒοΈβ„οΈπŸ“†πŸŽ…πŸ»

Today we hear from.... Jasper!

"...there is something magical about the first dress rehearsal..."

They aren't wrong! The show experience at Dancewise Studios is big. Like, BIG big! And like Jasper says, it's so much more than just one show, or one weekend...

It's everything!

The build up to finding out all about the show...

The reveal...

Hearing about the story...

Hearing about the concepts for the dances in class...

Listening to the music...

The first rehearsal in class...

Trying on the costume for the first time...

The dress rehearsals where we watch each other's dances...

EVERYTHING builds and builds and builds towards the show weekend. A beautiful, exciting, imagination fuelling, hype building experience for us all to share. And it makes the final product something filled with love and gratitude for what we get to do.

We couldn't have said it better ourselves, Jasper!


Did You Know....?

πŸ‘‰ Dancewise Don't Do Exams πŸ‘ˆ

No judgement if you love an exam - we used to! Now we work on empowering students to see where they need to invest their time in order to improve, using our experience and guidance.


7 days to go.... πŸ₯°β€οΈπŸŽ…πŸ»πŸ“†β„οΈβ˜ƒοΈπŸŽ„

Today we hear from.... James!

"the hungry hippos game..."

It's not what it sounds like... this is way bigger than the board game. And uses an entirely different type of board!

The students lay on skate boards and another student holds their ankles. They push them into the middle of the room where a whole load of ball pit balls are and the 'hippo' grabs them

It's a game we play to wind down each term. It's hilarious! Everyone loves it and can't wait to play it πŸ₯°

It's so important to us to share these moments with our students. To just laugh and play with them at the end of a term, to relax the boundaries between us and just be people enjoying a fun game.

We're so glad you enjoyed Human Hungry Hippos James! We love it too!



8 days to go...

Today we hear from... Lily!

"getting to be a part of the show for the first time"

The show is the centre of our calendar. Everything leads towards a big live performance at the end of the year to share, celebrate and come together.

The first show people do is always an exciting mix of adrenaline, smiles, nerves, fun and exhilaration!

That's what brings the transformation that we work towards - the transforming power of live performance!

And I mean.... look at Lily!

This is her on stage in 2022. Look how bold, confident and engaging she looks!

We'd say that power is working pretty well for her πŸ₯°

It was great to be able to share your memory Lily! ❀️


9 days to go πŸ“†πŸŽ…πŸ»β˜ƒοΈπŸ₯°πŸŽ„

Today we hear from... Ella!

"It was really fun, exciting and a good start to a good show"

The audience enjoys the part of a show they are able to see on stage

The dancers get to enjoy everything that happens behind the scenes too! So often it's those memories that come back to us over and over.

Waiting in the wings, watching your friends performing their routine, silent exchanges before you go on, hugs, squeezes, smiles...

Ella's memory is one shared by a whole network of students, teachers and parents alike who share in the experience backstage. We're often running around doing things so we loving hearing about the parts of the show its so easy for us to miss.

Fab memory Ella πŸ₯°
