Theatre Peckham's Young Dance Company jive their way to the Nationals!

July 4th, 2011

Congratulations to the Young Dance Company at Theatre Peckham who won first place (Community Groups) at the Southwark Dance Challenge on 22nd June at Unicorn Theatre. The Young Dance Company will now move on to the National Finals, taking place on 17th July at Cadagon Hall to compete against other groups from around the UK.

The Company did a dance piece which included a medley of Jive, Charleston, Lindy-Hop, Tap and Hip-Hop. The dance style is based on Theatre Peckham's innovative dance class, 'Charleston to Hip-Hop', which is delivered by Theatre Peckham's Head of Dance, Jreena Green.

The Theatre Peckham Young Dance Company is a new venture for Theatre Peckham, which is currently made of up students aging from 8 to 13. The Company will represent Theatre Peckham at various events throughout the year, showcasing the amazing dance talent of the young people who attend classes at Theatre Peckham.
