The Unlimited Dance Company in Barnstaple is starting Hip Hop dance classes just for boys.

The classes start on TuesdaySeptember 14 and will be held in St John's Church Hall, Newport.

Boys aged seven and upwards are welcome.

"Hip hop is fabulous for boys - energetic, fun, and so cool,? says Sarah Elsom, principal of the Unlimited Dance Company.

"It?s fast-paced and exciting with modern, funky music. Hip Hop is so popular at the moment, after all the publicity about the dance groups on TV's Britain?s Got Talent. This sort of dance is very physical, and great for developing co-ordination and timing skills. The boys will find that it improves their performance in sports such as football as well.

"We wanted to have a boys' only group, as too often dancing is associated with girls. Boys often don't want to join a mainstream dancing class because they get teased. This boys' group will be much more what they want, and give them loads of street cred as well."

The Hip Hop classes will take place on Tuesdays from 4.45pm to 5.45pm. For more details and to book a place, please contact the Unlimited Dance Company on 01271 328720 or 07805 654491. There are also details on the website, www.unlimiteddance.co.uk

The Unlimited Dance Company is now based in Barnstaple, with classes in St John?s Church Hall, Newport. The dancing school will no longer be offering classes in Landkey, although its dance classes in South Molton will be continuing.
