About our Kids Ballroom and Latin Classes

Since joining a kids dance class from young ages, Kyle and the rest of the teachers at Elite place huge value on what they offer!

Are you looking for a dance class lead by great teachers, with super routines and a buzzing atmosphere? You may just have found some of the best dance classes Ballroom and Latin have to offer!

With all of our teachers playing their part in these classes, we have developed a truly great experience, classes ranging from 4 years to 16 years and all abilities welcome from beginner to intermediate and highly competitive, we have a class for everyone.

Classes commence with warm-up, 5 minutes of stretching and exercises to music, getting everyone nimble and the mood whilst promoting fitness, we then follow with either the Ballroom or Latin American section of the class (both lasting around 20 mins in most scenarios) starting with a recap from the previous week before heading to learn figures and technique based on the 10 different Ballroom and Latin dances in anticipation for any events, exams or goals set for the children upcoming, after we switch to the other style and repeat the same process. Throughout the class our teachers support the children by demonstrating routines clearly and even offer a little 1-2-1 (teacher and 1 pupil) help if needed. Dancing to music is a priority and we use it as much as possible, once children can begin to dance any steps we get the music playing and instil the expression of music. At the end of the class we have discussions to really get any message of the class to hit home, we speak to the children with respect and make them feel accomplished with quiz's and Q&A's based on everything they have learnt. 

Our goal is to give every child the best experience whilst supporting their growth through dance and ethos!

We look forward to seeing you at the next class!

Freestyle Disco Dance Classes

About Our Freestyle Disco and Rock and Roll Classes

Are you looking for a fast paced fun class? Then our this class is perfect for you! 

Lead by Joanne Blackshaw and supported by Chloe and Chelsea, children learn various routines from the different styles along with the supporting techniques. The routines are typically fast (but not too difficult to follow) with a sprinkle of slower routines to create a good mix of energetic and expressive dancing. Routines are based on current songs which make you want to get up and dance. A typical session starts with warm-up to get the kids moving, stretched out and in the right frame of mind before heading to any recaps from previous weeks followed by breaking down and learning new routines. Throughout the session everything is covered both slowly and then danced frequently to music helping to build confidence and skill. Whilst offering a really good workout, improving flexibility, mobility and endurance. To end the class we work on performance by dancing full-out to music motivating everyone to raise their game. Our Freestyle, Disco classes are great fun and very welcoming, we know you will love them!

New to the class?

Dont worry, as we pride ourselves on having not only great teachers but always someone at hand to help, any child trying to get up to speed will have the support of our additional teachers. Our assistant teachers are great at working with new dancers to help them feel supported and confident all the way.

We're proud of the work that we do with each of our students and would love for you to join us. Dancing is our passion and this is reflected in each of our lessons.

We achieve so much in our kids classes, as can be seen in this video. 

Why Elite Dance Classes

Kids classes are a great way to get your little ones active in a fun and friendly environment. We offer classes in Modern Ballroom, Latin American, Freestyle, Disco and Rock "n" Roll throughout the week across Chelmsford and Essex. 

Our dance classes are filled with fun and exciting dance routines supported by a good dose of technical learning to improve not just what children do, but how they do it. Your children will develop the coordination, strength and flexibility needed as part of becoming an established young dancer. There is focus on more creative musical expression and, as they grow in their understanding of dance you will see a positive change in their posture and presence.

All children are placed in an age/ability appropriate class to ensure they get the best class experience.

Classes are particularly good for newcomers to dancing, there are additional helpers who will make you feel very comfortable and welcome from the word go.

If your child shows particular passion for progressing and possibly entering competitions and doing exams, we will make sure we find the right partner for your child to advance their skills.

All our Childrens Classes are suitable from age 4 to 15 and are spilt into age and ability.

Perks of Dance for Children

Many activities are believed to be beneficial for our littles ones but do any stand out from the crowd? We believe we know the answer.

Kids dance has many positives from all the social interaction with like minded children to perfecting skills with grit and determination plus everything in between. It's a well know fact that children make friends based on their interests, there is a strong social aspect associated to dancing, besides learning all the steps and technique, children get the opportunity meet new people and develop relationships with likeminded peers. Another great bonus is promoting physical development. most forms of dance require a strong core, flexibility, speed and strength! Attending regular dance classes or lessons is such a great way to maintain a great lifestyle. Besides great fitness benefits dance also promotes good discipline and responsibility. It's common for most dancers to participate in exams and competitions, with a desire to perform well children have an amazing ability to raise their game and bring their very best when it matters but it doesn't stop there, consistent practice and hard work is key to truly master dance skills and as new abilities become possible and easier, confidence grows and breeds a recipe for success! We truly believe that regular dancing is an amazing activity for kids who love expressing movement, making friends and have a competitive mindset.

It's important to all our teachers that every child has a great time and can still gain all the important factors we teach to become a super little dancer. Using a simple yet effective structure and a great of care topped with a little enthusiasm, it’s easy for kids to learn in our classes. We have seen 100's of our young dancers go on to be very successful both in and outside of the dance studio, many of them have acknowledged Elite for more than just their dancing, see what Ina who was one of our little dancers and now training to be a teacher had to say.

"What a four years it's been. I’ve grown so much throughout those years and I owe much of it to you. Thank you for everything! These years have been a blast and I hope there are many more to come. I love all our lessons and you’ve helped me so much to become how I am now. Let's hope next year is a nicer year and we can start competing again. Thank you Kyle - Ina"

Ina just like many others have benefitted from the encouragement, hard work and ethos we work to achieve at Elite,. We a super proud of all our little dancer and how much they have achieved with us. We have a goal to continue supporting the growth of all the children that love what we do!
