Reliably informed

While performance may be slow to return to our theatres, there are still art forms which can operate relatively well in a socially distanced setting. Newcastle’s Dance City will be reopening their doors on Monday 7th September and, while performances aren’t on the cards just yet, their world-class tutors and classes are on offer.

The city centre venue will be offering a reduced timetable of hybrid classes, available to join both in the building and via Zoom. Classes span all abilities and age groups, and provide an ideal opportunity to try something new. Of particular interest is the Afro Mix dance work-out, comprising a mixture of dancehall/reggaeton, coupé décalé and azonto styles (Wednesday); Contemporary dance lessons offer a fusion of styles including ballet, modern dance, African and jazz (Thursday-Saturday); Fitsteps, a dance and fitness programme choreographed and designed by the professionals on Strictly Come Dancing (Tuesday); the popular high-energy hip-hop dance class (Wednesday/Friday); and Meditation, which uses mindfulness to achieve a sense of calm and flow (Monday); as well as more traditional forms of dance including ballet (Wednesday/Saturday), ballroom, Latin and tap (all Tuesday).
