Street Dance

for secondary schools

for girls and boys in years 7-11 (S1-S5)

  • Street Dance Weekend Trips for Schools

Learn it, practise it, perform it

This is your chance to give your dancers their opportunity to shine.

More traditional PE activities don’t fit the bill for everyone.

There will always be some who don’t engage. And then there are those who really just love to dance!

Our supportive, charismatic, professional dance instructors, working in partnership with PGL, deliver a weekend of highly motivational workshops.

Watch as your students become absorbed in their work; as they start out by mastering basic steps then work up to creating their very own routine.

The weekend’s work culminates with the excitement and sense of achievement when your group puts on a complete performance.

Courses run throughout the year at selected PGL centres and are for both boys and girls in Years 7–11 (S1-S5) as well as for members of after-school clubs.
