Konnect & Konnect Minis – our competition teams!

Konnect & Konnect Minis – our competition teams!

Whiteside’s School of Dance is very excited to offer the opportunity to selected pupils to take part in dance competitions. These take place in a variety of venues through out the academic year, normally in school holidays and weekends.

If you should be offered a place in a competition team then this is a great way to gain further performance experience, improve on technique and widen your knowledge of the world of performing. It remains absolutely essential that all normal classes are still attended regularly and that your dedication to all your dance genres remains strong.

Our competition groups were established in 2017 with the dynamic Abi Brooke as choreographer.  Occasionally the principal, Sarah, will enter a lyrical number or indeed a street number using pupils who are not in the competition teams – time permitting!

We love to perform.
