The aim of the classes will be to give the students an insight and understanding of modern hip-hop dance and various other genres, with the intention of putting on a performance at the end of their course, thus giving them a sense of achievement. Lessons will be with qualified dance tutors at a successful dance academy within Ilfracombe, the Rebecca Varley School of Dance.
