Hurst Childrens Theatre Group


HCTG offer Streetdance classes for children aged 6-15 on Fridays in Harpenden. 

All classes have Sophia as their teacher. The 45 minute session includes a warm up, warm down and work towards big routines to be performed (in front of hundreds) in a local Theatre!

The video below should give you a good idea of what we do. This was a performance in the Public Halls earlier this year. The first video is Class B (older children). The second one are the younger children. Watched by nearly 500 screaming fans! Professional ‘Lighting’ and ‘Sound’ adding to the occasion. Hopefully it is evident that the emphasis is very much on them having fun and enjoying themselves. This is not a super-serious and tightly structured/formal lesson. There are no exams. Anyone can do it. They’ll love it!!
