Elite Beats Performance Class



We are now running four Elire Beat Training Squads. The weekly training sessions include tuition in Modern Dance, Contemporary, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Street Dance and Musical Theatre.

The students are always working on routines in preparation for performances. This year the Elite Beat Squads have performed in six shows of Everybody Dance, the Strictky Come Dancing Tour and for the charity show "Shine" at The Octagon Theatre Yeovil.


The training is great fun and very good for improving core strength, stamina, flexibility,

co - ordination, musicality, rhythm and it will help to develop well tuned, toned and supple dancers. The Elite Beats training will be extremely beneficial for those pupils wishing to pursue  a career in dance.
