WELCOME! - This is the official website of HOTSTEPS DANCE!
Hotsteps Dance is an established dance school in the Hornchurch/Hatfield Peverel areas of Essex, who offer fun and funky dance classes for all children from school reception age to 18.
Dancing is a fun activity that virtually all children enjoy and as well as helping children keep fit, dancing can also build confidence, improve co-ordination and help develop personal skills – while at the same time offering children the opportunity to learn an new skill and make new friends.
At Hotsteps we are committed to sharing our passion and love of dance. All our pupils get the opportunity to learn different dance styles with routines that are varied and exciting – covering Freestyle, Disco and Jazz as well as Lyrical dance. Some of our routines, especially for the older classes, are also Street based – but we’re not into Body Poppin’, Lockin’ or Break Dance! We use a wide variety of music – everything from current pop to show tunes and our routines are also designed to compliment any dancing the children may do at school by incorporating moves that are included in the National Curriculum - Key Stages 1, 2 & 3.
However, Hotsteps classes aren’t just about routines – each class starts with a warm up followed by some easy stretching movements and Jazz based exercises - which are fantastic for improving poise, balance and body awareness! We teach on a “rolling basis” which means that over a term (approx 12 weeks) the children will learn between one and three routines, depending on age and ability. We hold an annual examination session with the IDTA, whose syllabus we follow and the highlight of our year is our special DANCE SHOW, where our students perform for family and friends, are presented with their Exam awards and rewarded for all their hard work at classes.
Sound like the kind of dance school you’re looking for – then why not give us a try?
