F.R.E.S.H @ #WAF10

Join Our Dance Community

In May 2019 F.R.E.S.H Studio's hosted a dance takeover of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe Festival. With a collective of dance artists, teachers and performers, we produced 20 unique dance events, which took over all three Saturdays of the festival.
Based at  Fresh Ground in Clapham Junction. Here's what we had on offer.

 

F.R.E.S.H Tasters Sessions 

On Your Feet


Our dance takeover of WAF#10 gave plenty of free opportunities for dancers to get their groove on. With an impressive programme of expert teachers, including some of the UK’s leading Black choreographers such as local artist Ben Love's, (founder of Ballet Soul) offering free ballet classes for young people and City Soul offering Latin dance experience.

Our popular free tasters are your opportunity to try out a variety of new dance styles. So remember to book earlier to avoid disappointment!

F.R.E.S.H Masterclasses

Get Up & Move

Each of our incredible masterclasses expresses the principles of F.R.E.S.H - Freedom in dance, own your Rhythm, Express yourself, Self-development and access to Higher Learning.  

We offer specialist masterclasses with highly trained professional teachers that can offer you something unique.


Why not try something different... For #WAF10 we had Popping & Mindfulness with international Choreographer Robert Hylton, Open Floor with Dance Movement Psychotherapist Mira Schauble, Rekindle your body, mind and spirit through movement with Maria Da Luz Ghoumrassi and AfroHouse the Drums Radio and Milo Santos
