Weekly street dance classes in full swing at Jack Hunt School

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

AS­PIR­ING dancers have been in­vited to go along to new classes that have started up at the Jack Hunt School.

In­struc­tors Ka­mal Hy­man and Asha Daly-moore from The Move­ment Street Dance Academy will take young­sters aged be­tween seven and 12 years of age through the moves as they pass on their top tips.

You do not have to be a pupil at the school to take part in the classes, which run on Wed­nes­days be­tween 5.30pm and 6.30pm dur­ing term time.

They are held in the school can­teen and cost just £3 per week.

Ka­mal said: “I feel that in or­der to be­come a suc­cess­ful per­son you must also be able to give back to peo­ple, the best way I per­son­ally be­lieve this can be done is through teach­ing young peo­ple what I have learnt as a dancer.

“Dance is some­thing that is open to any­body no mat­ter what their aca­demic abil­ity is and that is one of the main things that in­spires me to teach.

“As well as those who are very aca­demic and look to cre­ate fur­ther op­tions.”

Asha added: “I feel young peo­ple need that pos­i­tive role model in their lives to un­der­stand that there is more to life than just video games, in­ter­net and fight­ing.

“I feel that we are the right peo­ple to do so we can also help to put the en­ergy they use for neg­a­tive things into some­thing pos­i­tive.”
