We use The 3 Step Foundation Formula™ to adapt any move to any ability level to ensure everyone in the class is both engaged and supported plus it helps you create your own fresh combo’s in minutes not hours. Discover how it works here…

“Caleb can’t stop dancing around the house, I can just tell his love for dancing is different than his love for other clubs, even when his friends are outside playing he’ll be inside practising his dance! It makes us so happy to see that.”

Katie Alman – Aylesbury

The R.E.A.L method™ is our four pillars of educational focus, these create the most exciting and enjoyable atmosphere combined with an individual approach to personal empowerment which results in faster progression. To find out more about the four pillars and exactly how we use them click here…

“The positive atmosphere Urban Strides creates works wonders, whenever I pick my boys up they’re inspired, they feel elevated, like they’re floating on air, it’s totally different to anything they’ve experienced before…”

Dr Lynne Chapman – Chartridge, Bucks

: IN THEIR WORDS :

James Corden

I would heartily recommend Andy and Urban Strides for any Street Dance experience whether it’s the opening of a TV show, the Royal Variety performance or a weekly class for a total beginner. Urban Strides make it fun, positive and an exciting experience-with their incredible passion and professionalism you can't help but want to get up and dance!

Alice Knight

I came in on the first day and I was really nervous I didn’t know anyone but by the end of the week, I met so many new people and everyone was so welcoming and friendly it’s just like one big family. Seriously though, the instructors were amazing, it's sooo good you just have to come next time. If you’ve got no one to come with just book it. As soon as you get here you’ll meet so many lovely people

This Is For You And Your Child If…

  • They’ve always wanted to dance but never had the courage to take the leap
  • You’ve watched dance shows on TV and they’ve always thought, “I could do that”

  • They like having fun while they learn

: OUR SECRET SAUCE :

OUR 3-STEP FOUNDATION

Foundation Elements

The small parts that make up any move. By understanding them you can take away the ones that are too difficult or add more if you want a challenge. You can take sections and change them to create an unlimited number of new moves.

Foundation Steps

These are combinations of elements combined with specific, intention and rhythm to create an entire move. Understanding the right intention and music to do it to means you can create new moves in an authentic way.

Foundation Variations

By understanding how a step is made you can change one foundation element in a step to create a brand new move. Or you can change the whole step by using different dynamics to create a brand new look and feel to an old move.

A “Strider for life” is someone who embodies our philosophy and the positive strategies they’ve learnt at Urban Strides and applies them in other areas of their life.

Our secret sauce is the “what” and “How” of what we do. It’s the combination of two unique frameworks crafted over the last two decades:

The 3 Step Foundation Formula™ and The R.E.A.L method™.

The 3 Step Foundation Formula™ is used to adapt any move to any ability level to ensure everyone in class is both engaged and supported plus it helps you create your own fresh combo’s in minutes not hours.

What Do I Wear?

We are super chilled about clothing at Urban Strides, our philosophy is be who you are! With that being said we would recommend trainers with a good sole for cushioning, loose-fitting clothing like tracksuit bottoms and a loose T-shirt, so you can move about freely.

What If I Can’t Afford It?

We understand that although Hip Hop Don’t Stop is as inexpensive as we can make it given the economic climate we know finances can be tight. This is why we offer our payment plan. To discover how the payment plan can help you call Alison on 08448 488825 and she’ll give you all the info you need.

I'm Nervous About Coming On My Own?

That’s understandable! Whenever you try something new it can be exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. 90% of our Urban Strides students come on their own the first time. On arrival, you will be welcomed by your class assistant and instructor who will make you feel relaxed and at ease. Before long you would have made new friends and will look forward to seeing them every week at class. Many people spend too long plucking up the courage, make it happen, come along and see for yourself. One of our students recently commented that she took 8 months to pluck up the courage and now she’s in class she wished she would’ve started sooner! Don’t waste time, come down and try it after all if you don’t love it you have your money-back guarantee.

What Do I Need To Bring?

Plenty of water, fresh fruit to replace energy, a warm hoody or coat to ensure your muscles are kept warm when you leave, heaps of passion, a smiley face ohhh and a Mars bar for the teacher, that’s essential 😉

: OUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

INSTRUCTORS

Our primary focus is in creating a positive and energized environment whilst having a lot of laughs in the process. We have discovered the more relaxed you are the more likely you are to create your best work. Our instructors use individual goal setting techniques to ensure you’re clear on what you need to do to improve to the next stage. With a strong focus on you fulfilling your true potential.

Our instructors training program is at the forefront of the Street Dance world. We believe in order to get incredible results we need incredible instructors which is why our instructors undergo a minimum of 4 training and development programs per year.

Relationships

The quality of your relationships defines the quality of your life. Relationships start with trust, which leads to listening and empathy, which leads to better communication. In a dance class, students need relationships with the teacher, with their peers, with the music and most importantly with themselves. This skill is not taught readily in most educational settings but is a critical component to your happiness and success in life, the more flexible your ability to communicate the happier you will be.

Empowerment

The core of empowerment is self-belief followed by self-confidence. We build self-belief by constructing “micro-wins” which develops a personal sense of belief, confidence, and ultimately progression. Surrounded by a uniquely positive, supportive and encouraging environment our students have the ingredients to feel empowered not just in our dance sessions but in all areas of life, after all, confidence spreads quicker than fire.

Aspiration

Aiming high is essential to keep us moving in the right direction. Humans are teleological beings which means we need to create new targets and goals to feel like we are progressing. Which is why we use our inspirational student success stories alongside peer to peer demonstrations to ensure not only do our students want to aim higher and do more they can prove to themselves they can actually achieve it.

LEARNING

We all learn differently, one size certainly does not fit all which is why our teachers are trained in exceptional communication. Our teachers use specific techniques and exercises which ensure every type of learner is engaged as well as having the flexibility to adapt and support any individual challenge a student may face. Studies have shown when students are in a “peak state for learning” they are 500% more effective. It’s with this in mind that our teachers ensure all of our students are feeling energised, confident and positive with a can-do attitude before they even take a step. This ensures their learning curve is far steeper than usual.

Learn How it Works

The 3-Step Foundation Formula™

WHY URBAN STRIDES?

At the end of each 6-week module your child will be aiming for one of 3 certificates:

  • Strongest dancer
  • Most improved
  • Most supportive team member

We believe in the teaching philosophy of more carrot than stick which is why we reward and encourage your child to aim high and achieve. We firmly believe having something positive to aim for brings out the best in your child and helps them to strive for a higher standard.

At the end of every 6 week module your child will get an opportunity to perform a showcase for you so you can see everything they’ve learnt. The show case creates a positive environment where your child is celebrated for all their hard work and their achievements.

We also have regular Street Dance camps and workshops with Street Dance pioneers. This year we had one of Michael Jackson’s body-popping teachers fly over from America to come and do a workshop with the students. We are committed to ensuring that your child has unique opportunities they would not normally experience.

We tend to attract caring and supportive parents. People who are willing to go the extra mile for their child. Because of this mentality, we find that often parents find like-minded parents and Mum’s that feel and think similarly to you. This ensures your child is surrounded by other well mannered and brought up children. We often find that Urban Strides becomes the primary social group for your child, with a philosophy of teamwork, striving for excellence and a belief that hard work gets results our fun and “Aim higher” attitude seems to attract happy, passionate people with a positive can do attitude… Plus we like to laugh… a lot 😉
