Shake It!


Shake It! is a new dance workshop company run by students at The Bolsover School. We offer a range of workshops in many different dance styles and genres, including African and Asian folk and classical dance, to contemporary dances including Hip Hop and Break Dancing. (see our website for more details We work with nursery, primary and secondary schools in the area. We want to get young children interested in dance, as a way of keeping fit and to inspire them to get interested in dance and movement as a long term enjoyment. If you choose any of the African or Asian dance styles, schools can involve their pupils in other areas of the curriculum using dance as the central theme to raise their cultural awareness, English, Geography and History. We make our dance workshops fun, and we often work with schools towards a public performance where the young people can really shine, like local Festivals and events. As our strapline says "Shake It! - it's your time to shine." For more details, please contact us: E-mail --
