This term at Instep 

In September, as we returned to another year at Instep, we were reminded of our summer show back in July. We received images and video from the performance and couldn't’ wait to share them with you! The Instep Summer Season 2017 was captured by Daniela D’Amato and the images are available to purchase as follows -


The show was also filmed by production company WigglyLine. You can purchase and download the show through Vimeo in high definition for £12  or individual dances for £3 each by following these links.

The Instep year always begins with a round of auditions for company places in September. We had a over 150 young people auditioning this year and were overwhelmed by the talent and determination. The Thursday community classes also had an overwhelming start. We had such a large intake of new dancers and have had to add a new class to accommodate our 11s and under.

October saw us launch a new professional class with Boomerang dancers on Wednesdays 7 pm to 8 pm. This team of dancers have a wealth of experience and training - all of them have BA Hons, from establishments such as Chichester Uni , London School of Contemporary Dance and Laban Conservatoire of dance and music. Joe and Becky also have an MA in Dance performance and Joe is currently dancing for Lila Dance Company. These classes are suitable for teachers , graduates and dancers with experience.

Over the past few years we have successfully applied for Arts Council funding to support projects such as the MayaKaras. This year we decided to explore other funding options and have had success in securing £500 funding from Skipton Building Society Grass Roots fund. Thank you to everyone who helped us get this funding, every little helps!

In November we shared the stage with Brockhill Park Performing Arts College Dance Department to bring you the Autumn Showcase. It was great to unite with the school in two sold out shows that highlight how important the Brockhill and Instep relationship is.

Due to popular demand we ran two nights of our Christmas Sharing this year. Both nights were sold out! The Christmas sharing is always an informal evening to share and celebrate what the classes and companies have been working on this term, and a great excuse to feel festive. The sharing was showered in tinsel and to top it off we raised £245 for the charity Action Against Homelessness in Folkestone.  

We look forward to 2018 at Instep. For dates in the new year click here.
