AMC School of Dance

 About AMC School of Dance

AMC School of Dance is an independant community dance school based in Quorn near Loughborough, Leicestershire. Formed in 2011, the school meets every Sunday and currently offers classes in Character, Ballet, Modern, Tap, Contemporary, HipHop/Street and Urban dance. We also have a Monday night Tap & Ballet Club perfect for adults of all ages and abilities who want to learn something new - and have a natter!

Dance is a fantastic hobby to take up with benefits including keeping fit, improving coordination and building teamworking skills whilst making friends and having fun. However, we at AMC go a little bit further than that with key beliefs that make us different from all other dance clubs in the area.

 What makes AMC different?

  • Every class is well structured starting with a warm up or ice-breaker warm up, steps and routines and then learning/putting together a dance. We ensure that every pupil feels involved and included throughout the class and encourage working together as a team.

  • As well as teaching dance steps, routines and dances; AMC focusses on developing pupils' ability to express themselves and enhancing their performance skills. This is great for building confidence and self development.

  • There are no exams! Dance should be fun and not stressful which is why we have a no exams ethic. Parents and guardians can see their child's progress at our shows and medal sessions.

  • We focus on keeping the costs down. Dance can often be very expensive with an expectation for parents to spend hundreds of pounds on show costumes. We have our very own costume committee and non-profit costume fund that runs fundraising events and activities to subsidise the cost of costumes for all our dancers. We also have a ceiling price of £10 per week for classes no matter how many subjects you take!

  • Dance notes, video tutorials and music tracks for many of our dances are available to download from the members area of this website. This means pupils can practice at home whenever they want to. As far as we're aware, no other dance school does this!

 Shows and Displays

The AMC sunday classes put on an annual show for parents, guardians and friends. This is a fantastic opportunity to see what your child has learnt and be thoroughly entertained by our vibrant performances. Shows are a great event for all the family.

We also hold at least one Medal session every year. This is a chance for all pupils to perform a solo or duet dance in front of parents, guardians and friends and recieve a medal for their achievement from a VIP.

As well as holding our own shows and performances, we also arrange theatre trips, workshops, parties and events throughout the year that all of our pupils and their families can get involved in.
