ABOUT STEP N GROOVES DANCE SCHOOL
Step N Grooves Dance School, based in Islip (Thrapston) Northamptonshire was founded by Mrs Steph Newman back in September 2000. The school prides itself on being completely original. It offers its pupils the opportunity to learn modern (N.A.T.D) Freestyle Disco and Street dance, participate in our 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, near Thrapston, Northamptonshire.
We are quite different to conventional dance schools; we are not a competitive establishment, we are 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 complimented by playing dance games and doing conditioning exercises. This style of teaching indirectly allows the dancers to grow, 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 21 years. The dancers in the school are able to take N.A.T.D examinations once/twice a year, participate in our annual shows and get involved in any displays, presentation mini shows and events that we do (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 often hold Step N Grooves school holiday dance workshops, teaching workshops and Easter parties. We are well experienced in our unique birthday parties and have also choreographed first wedding dances. Private lessons are available to our pupils.
