Wednesday open for all classes
Wednesday open for all classes is a great class to have fun and learn fantastic moves and get basic street dance training where students will learn different routines each week to challenge them at different styles , Wednesday Hype Open for all classes have 3 main teachers:
* Alex Williams
* Genaya Hartley-Gordon
But each month there are also different classes & workshops from teachers around Bristol and the UK.
We expect all dancers to push themselves in all classes and always come to class ready to learn and to try their best. There is also a high responsibility as a parent to get them to practice & rehearse in front of you at home.
Most classes will be put up on the Hype Dance Company youtube page by the next day but if not parents can request the video via WhatsApp.
At the moment Due to Covid19 there are limited spaces of 18 students in the hall , so all Wednesday classes will have to be paid via the website on a first pay basis , there is a no refund policy on these classes.
Due to new covid19 rules Parents/Guardians will not be allowed to stay inside the building for the Wednesday Hype open for classes, parents must drop off at the door and be ready 10 minutes before class to pick the student up.
