‘Dani Dee School of Dance’ is a dance school that has been established for over 16 years based in Swansea, specialising in Street, Hip Hop, Jazz, Contemporary, Acrobatics and new to our studios beginners Ballet. Celebrating one very successful year at our own studios, along with classes in Upper Killay and Mumbles, we are looking forward to bigger and better things for 2017.
We take pride in the fact that our aim is to improve and nurture our students technique and confidence, by giving them the opportunity to learn many styles of dance through our range of fully qualified and experienced teachers and through the workshops we hold taught by outstanding, inspiring, dancers/choreographers who are currently working in the professional dance industry.

‘Street Dance’ is a fusion of many styles including hip hop, locking, popping, house, krumping, jazz, waacking, commercial, contemporary and other forms of popular dance. You will mostly see these styles in pop videos and live concerts. It is an ever increasing popular style of dance with television shows such as ‘Britain’s Got Talent’, ‘Got to Dance’ etc showing the creativity, energy and discipline of these styles, with winners such as IMD, Flawless, George Sampson, Diversity, Akai and Twist and Pulse.
Alongside our normal open classes we have more specialised classes –
BOYS ONLY CLASSES – We have a boys only hip hop class which starts for age under 10’s. The boys will benefit from this class as they will learn breakdance and some styles of Street can be feminine such as Waacking and not all boys want this. The boys classes are extremely popular and very lively!!!
COMMERCIAL JAZZ/CONTEMPORARY CLASSES – We have recently added these classes to enable our dancers to become more rounded dancers. these classes cover a range of techniques which help to strengthen their bodies and aid flexibility. This will help them to further their careers in the Dance World.
BALLET CLASSES – New to Ballet? Thought it was too late to take up one of the most demanding and challenging styles of Dance. Our brand new open Ballet classes are available for all ages taught by a fully qualified teacher on a Saturday morning.
