: YOUR TRIBE

THE SENIOR CREW

The Senior Crew are a team of eager, focused and passionate dancers who intend on pushing themselves to be the best they can be. You will join an elite group that uses the ‘R.E.A.L method’ and the ‘Athletic Artist Program’ to encourage you to evolve into the healthiest and happiest version of yourself. Giving you more courage to achieve your goals within your dance life, school or work life and put you on the path to progression. Each year we offer the opportunity for dancers aged 16+ to audition to become part of this first-class team.

“Urban Strides are completely unique… From starting off in a beginner class to working my way up through the crews, the one thing that never changes is the supportive, positive, and passionate community. No matter what class you take you’ll always be surrounded by people that care for your progression and that’s something you don’t get everywhere else… Urban Strides have also created so many amazing opportunities. Performing in-front of a sell-out arena tour, 5 years in a row is something I’ll cherish forever. No matter where my path takes me, I’ll always have my Strides family forever and that’s something money can’t buy… If you’re thinking about auditioning for the crews, it’s a no brainer because it will completely change your life if you’re willing to put the work in!”
Luke Roberts, Great Missenden

: OUR SECRET SAUCE

THE ATHLETIC ARTIST…

The heart of Urban Strides education is all about building your confidence in a positive and passionate environment. Our unique Athletic Artist system is at the core of our training and ensures everybody is clear on what we’re aiming for and how we’ll get there.

: A UNIQUE TRAINING SYSTEM

THE ATHLETIC ARTIST…

We focus on 3 pillars to maximise your potential. Each part works in unison to ensure you’re growing not just in dance but in mind, body and spirit too. It’s a unique holistic approach that has revolutionised the standard one can obtain and has ensured our students enjoy results dramatically higher than the norm and be happier too! It has meant our dancers have performed with the likes of Rhianna, Harry Styles, Jess Glynne and Justin Bieber, and starred in several movies and on west end tours.

It All Starts HerePillar 1 - Who We Are

Our aim is to be committed, courageous and concentrated. Always willing to go for a challenge even if it scares us, stick at it when things don’t go as we planned and have the focus to follow through. These three behaviours shape how we approach everything. They will build your resilience and positively impact your life in all areas.

Lights, camera, action!Step 2 - The Artist

You’ll experience a safe place where you can develop your artistry and truly express who you are in a zero judgement zone . You’ll learn the skill set required to deliver a high-level performance within an enthusiastic, focussed and supportive team. We help you develop your self-belief so that when you stand on stage, you show who you really are.

Dreaming bigStep 3 - The Athlete

We help you become the athlete you have the potential to be. We meet you wherever you are and create a specially designed progression programme just for you. You will enjoy a radical transformation in your strength, agility and energy. You will see and feel positive changes in what you can do and how you can express yourself through your body. You will enjoy a new passion for wellness and health that will serve you long into the future.

Clarke, High Wycombe

“Reflecting on just my 3 month journey with the Athletic Artist has made me realise how far I’ve come. The holistic nature of the training has meant that not only have I got stronger in all areas of my body but most importantly I’m mentally stronger too. I’ve realised by working on my mind, body and spirit I’m so much more capable than I once thought. Seeing the improvement and how far I’ve come is such a liberating feeling I can barely recognise the girl I used to be (in a good way!) The person I’ve started to become over my short time in crew has astonished me and my future is calling my name louder and louder everyday! Thank you much! : )

: OUR UNIQUE ETHOS…

A HEALTHY APPROACH

Our crew members learn to focus on their R.O.S.E – Rate Of Self Evolution. It ensures a healthy competition with self and a desire to consistently evolve. It eradicates the unhealthy comparison of others and empowers people to compete with themselves. When they focus on this they tend to achieve extra ordinary things and are more open to celebrating and supporting the success of others.

: Your time is now

Who is the Senior Crew for?

The Senior Crew is for you if:

  • You’ll bring a positive and passionate attitude to weekly training
  • You are willing and excited to push yourself week by week
  • You are a team player
  • You are committed to retaining and practicing choreography
  • You are excited to prepare for performance opportunities

: Not as scary as you might think!

What to expect in the audition…

The audition will be very different to what you may have experienced in the past. We appreciate it can feel nerve wracking, so we go over and above to ensure the experience is as relaxed and fun as can be, so it feels more like one of our classes and less like a pressure cooker! We are looking for dancers with not necessarily the best technique but with the drive to fully immerse themselves within the crew and the passion to give it their all every week, inside and outside of the studio.

: Practice makes progress

What to expect each week…

Because the Senior Crew is an audition-based opportunity the techniques you will experience in weekly training will be advanced. During training you will be developing your confidence in performance skills, musicality, creativity, athleticism, authentic Street Dance, teamwork and freestyle. We find that the most successful approach is to make our training methods exciting and engaging, so you dramatically improve in confidence and fitness levels whilst having a laugh at the same time!
