Lockdown Moves and Grooves

Are you missing dancing or always wanted to try your hand at dance or even some different styles? Well - now is your chance to join us in 'Lockdown moves and grooves' for a taster!

We are running a series of different taster sessions to get you in the groove and wet your appetite. The sessions are led by members of the Arts Centre who dance, love dance and have choreographed for shows at the Arts Centre.

There are a limited number of places for each taster session, so get in touch on: movesandgrooves@shaftesburyartscentre.org.uk to book your place!

The sessions will be run on Zoom and you will be sent an invite by the choreographer who is leading each session the day before the taster session.

If you love the taster sessions, let us know as there is more being planned for 'Lockdown Moves and Grooves'.
