Appeal to join dance class

THE COUNCIL has made an appeal for young people to join its weekly street dance sessions in Ilkeston.

Run by Erewash Borough Council’s Mobile Activities Team, the hour-long sessions are aimed at boys and girls of all abilities aged between five and 19 and are held Thursday evenings at the Methodist Church in Nottingham Road.

All forms of popular street dance are taught and are run by two qualified professional dancers.

Cllr Mike Wallis, the council’s lead member for culture and leisure, said: “It is a great way for young people to keep fit and have fun while at the same time learning serious dance style.”
