School gives kids and adults the chance to dance
DO YOU want to learn to dance without the drama of eisteddfods and examinations?
Then Booval's NY Dance is just the school for you.
Students can come to class for their dance lessons where the aim is maximum fun for students and minimum hassle for parents.
The studio provides a relaxed and fun atmosphere where everyone is welcome to come along and learn.
Principal Natalie Yates founded NY Dance with a vision of catering for children and adults of any age and standard.
"From beginners to experienced dancers, everyone who comes loves attending class once a week, with no further expectations," she said.
Dance classes include tap and jazz for those from three years old to adults and contemporary classes for senior students.
Adult jazz was added to the timetable in 2012.
There are two adult tap classes - one for beginners and one for former dancers.
Ms Yates also has a babydance class for two year olds, which is purely play-based.
"Parents can dance with their children during the lesson, which helps them to explore their imagination, improve gross motor skills and develop social skills such as waiting your turn and interacting with other children," Ms Yates said.
"I really believe that children are so precious and that a good teacher, or coach, of any sort, for any length of time, can really influence a child.
"So I take what I am doing very seriously.
"Here we understand that families are busy and we aim for our students to have the best and most positive experience possible while they are here."
NY Dance students will perform at the Ipswich Civic Centre next month to showcase the routines they have learned throughout the year.
The under-sevens dance will be held on Saturday, November 24, at 10am and the senior school dance on Friday, November 23, and Saturday, November 24, at 7pm.
