Disco Ducks

Disco Duck is a fantastic Toddler Dance Class

Disco Duck has proved to be a popular addition to Megan’s Academy of Dance.

The classes are full of fun and contain funky dance routines, themed weeks and catchy and original tunes written and created specifically for Disco Duck.

They provide a great learning opportunity for children aged 18 months through to 4 years, enabling them to begin their journey into the world of dance. Disco Duck classes have proven to be very popular nationwide.

The children have lots of fun, whilst developing their coordination, fitness and rhythm. The classes are specifically designed, by a dance professional and examiner, for pre-school children.

With the help of our special friend, Disco Duck, MAD works with the children (and their parents), to make sure they have lots of fun whilst keeping fit at the same time.

For more information on the general structure of the class/syllabus, please see the Disco Duck website.

Wedding Dances

Wow everyone with an amazing Wedding Dance

Want your first dance to be extra special? Always wanted to do something different that your family and friends wouldn’t expect? Well, this could be what you are looking for…

All dances are choreographed to a high standard and are to the couples/groups specification. The dance can be choreographed for two or more people depending on requirements.

Initial consultation

This meeting will take approximately one hour and will involve the couple/group of dancers. This can be in the comfort of your own home.
The following information will be required as this will form the basis for the discussion:

  • Shoes and outfits to be worn on the day (the dance needs to take account of these items)
  • The song/piece of music you would like to dance to/rhythm you want to dance to (eg. Waltz, Rumba, etc.)
  • How long you want the dance to last
  • Where the wedding/reception is to be held
  • Anything specific you want to be included (eg. A special move that you have always wanted to do)

Included in this session will be some basic dance moves for you to practice at home

Costs

£20.00 for the initial consultation.

A minimum of four one-hour sessions will then be required at a cost of £100.00, to be paid in advance. Additional classes will cost £30.00 per hour, but discounts will apply if block-booked. Any extras to be discussed and may result in additional charges, subject to requirements.
