Sessions are led by Joanna Clare, an experienced dance artist and teacher. Her biography is available to download at the foot of this page.
Live musical accompaniment is provided by accordionist Jeremy Monson, and occasionally other musicians.
"Joanna is brilliant at engaging the children and fills every lesson with excitement. The class combines creativity with rigorous physical exercises, making it a perfect after school activity. My daughter loves it - folk dance class is the highlight of our week!" - parent
