After a year away from the stage our dancers are excited to be Stepping Forward in front of an audience and under the lights! We are looking forward to sharing the joy and artistry our dancers bring to each and every class with their loved ones and community.
Our vision is simple. We believe in the value of dance as an enriching art form. For the past 30+ years, dance umbrella has provided high-quality dance and movement classes. An alternative form of self-expression, dance helps build self-confidence, create healthy bodies and minds, and develop creativity. Thousands of students have gone through our training programmes, many of whom have successful careers in the performing arts.
