ABOUT STEP N GROOVES DANCE SCHOOL
Step N Grooves Dance School, based in Islip (Thrapston) Northamptonshire & surrounding areas was founded by Mrs Steph Newman back in September 2000. The school prides itself on being completely original. It offers its pupils the chance to learn modern (N.A.T.D) Freestyle Disco and Street dance, participate in our many performances and events but most importantly of all, to become part of the Step N Grooves family. We run classes for ages 2 years plus in Islip, Oundle and Stanion.
We are quite different to conventional dance schools; we are not competitive, we are all about zero pressure & having fun. This has proven central to our success – our dancers really thrive. Within a Step N Grooves lesson, routines, skills practise and confidence building are often taught in conjunction with playing dancing games and exercises. This style of teaching indirectly allows the dancers to practise and improve on certain techniques, but more importantly gives them a chance to have a giggle.
The school has continued to flourish over the past 20 years. The dancers in the school are able to take N.A.T.D examinations once a year, participate in our annual shows and get involved in our displays, presentation mini shows and events (but these aren’t compulsory at all!) We do our own regular “Skills Achievement Cards” which involve the pupils working towards 5 set skills, goals or tasks to receive a recognition medal. We also hold Step N Grooves school holiday dance workshops, teaching workshops and parties. We are well experienced in our unique birthday parties and have also choreographed first wedding dances. Private lessons are available to our pupils.
