Here at K.Dee.K we offer a huge range of classes for kids. There is something for everyone from age 3 - 16, catered for in a safe, secure and nurturing environment.
BALLROOM AND LATIN AMERICAN
If you are a Strictly Come Dancing fan there are our established Ballroom and Latin classes. If you’ve caught the ballroom bug and want to try it for yourself then this is for you! There are 5 Ballroom dances – Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot, Quick Step and Viennese Waltz, and 5 Latin American dances - Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Jive and Paso Doble. You can also have the opportunity to take your medal tests, dress up Strictly style and dance in competitions in beautiful ballroom venues like the Blackpool Winter Gardens! Did you know? Ballroom and Latin is great for keeping you fit and healthy and is good for your stamina, posture and your confidence too!
If your little one enjoys dancing to music or listening and singing to nursery rhymes, then come along to our tots class and join in the fun! Introduce them to a fantastic, social form of exercise encouraging a healthy lifestyle starting from their early years! Parents are welcome to sit, chat and watch the kids enjoying themselves whilst enjoying a hot drink from our cafe bar.
SHOWS AND SUMMER SCHOOLS
Here at K.Dee.K Danceworks there are so many opportunities for you to take to the stage and perform! We have performed at numerous huge events and venues around Staffordshire as well as encouraging the children to perform at medal tests and events within the studio. We provide a nurturing and supportive environment to ensure that each child can build confidence and reach their full potential whatever their ability.
When can I start?
You can join our classes at any point! You don’t need to wait until the start of a new term, just come along on the day to register.
What do I wear?
Something comfy that you can move easily in, and won’t get too hot and sweaty in! Sports gear and trainers do the job for most classes, and if you’re coming to the ballroom and latin class, shoes with a bit less grip will help you out. You might want to get yourself some special dance shoes later on – you can get shoes for all styles from the studio plus we can give you advice on what you’ll need.
Can mum and dad stay?
Yes – parents can stay at the studio during class times if they wish in our lovely coffee bar area. They’ll be able to keep an eye on you in the studio so make sure you’re on your best behavior!
Is it just for girls?
No! Dance is for everyone and we have mixed classes for boys and girls.
What if I’m not sure what dance I want to learn?
Have a look at our dance styles page where you can find a bit more info on all the different dances. If you’re still not sure, just come along to some different classes until you find the one for you.
Do I have to do exams, competitions and shows?
It’s up to you! Exams are by no means compulsory (you’re dancing to have fun!) but a lot of dancers enjoy doing them and the sense of achievement that it brings. Events like competitions and shows are always really good fun and push you to perform your best! Once you’ve done your medal test, you can start taking part in some competitions! It’s an amazing experience to dance in a competition, it really pushes you to do your best - you’re bound to see a difference straight away! K.Dee.K are very successful at the UKA Ballroom & Latin events. K.Dee.K are previous winners of the Northern Trophy for best overall Latin American, and Top Teacher award for the Midlands and the North West. Events take place all over the country with a big competition every summer at the Winter Gardens, Blackpool. If you’d like to get involved ask your instructor (and mum and dad!) and we can give you the best advice on how to get started!
