Our dance tutors come from a range of diverse international backgrounds, and bring an authentic energy and depth of knowledge to their teaching. The workshops invite students to try new things, work together to learn new choreography, and even experiment with being young leaders themselves.

Street Dance, Jazz & Tap Workshops

The Global Grooves team pride themselves on sharing the most diverse styles of Carnival dance from around the world, remembering that many of these older forms have found themselves incorporated into more modern styles of dance. Our tutors team comprises professionals from a diverse field of study, including street, jazz, and tap. Some of our past workshops in schools have allowed students of modern dance to explore more traditional forms, encouraging them to add new movement to their repertoire and create original work.

Capoeira & Break Dance Workshops

Capoeira is a beautiful, acrobatic art form that originates from the African slaves in Brazil in the 16th Century. Slaves used it as a form of self-defence, affirming strength and building esteem. Capoeira is an accessible, dance-like movement performed to energising percussive music.

Zumba & Fitness Classes

In the age of technology, it has never been more important to encourage a healthier lifestyle amongst our young people. Several dance tutors working within our team are also qualified Zumba instructors, partly to allow them to spread their love of Carnival dance and music as far and wide as possible to offer a quality experience. These sessions make an excellent compliment to PE programming, and can include a CPD aspect for staff wishing to offer similar ongoing activity in school.
