To support your child’s ankles and to get the best experience from the class, we would highly recommend trainers. Please no boots, crocs or sandals.

What should my child wear to their street dance class?

Suitable clothing is advised, in order to move and stretch freely. Joggers, leggings, shorts with t-shirts or vests are all suitable. We also advise no school uniforms for the children’s protection.

What will my child learn in their street dance class?

Can I book dance parties with your teachers?

To book a Streetfunk party, please email us at info@streetfunk.co.uk. You can request a specific teacher, although please note it is dependant on their availability.

What type of music do you use in a street dance class?

We use a range of music including Hip Hop, R&B, Funk, Pop, and more. For our younger classes, we make sure the classes use non-explicit music to keep the environment friendly and welcoming.

Can I sit and watch the class whilst my child is learning?

We believe that students need to be able to focus without the distraction of family members in the teaching space. We only invite parents to come and watch their child during their first class and their last class of each term.
