Commercial Dance

Commercial is dance style takes from many other dance disciples (such as jazz, street, modern and hip hop) and is a combination of self expression, energy and performance.

Commercial Dance

If you are looking for a dance class that is about developing a super high energy and a sassy style, Commercial is definitely for you. Dancers all over the world perform in this cutting edge dance style for Pop Artists in arena tours, awards ceremonies and in music videos. Commercial dance has evolved from Urban styles such as Hip Hop and Fused with a more theatrical Jazz style to give dancers the freedom to unleash their sass factor and stare their stuff in a style that is on trend and fabulous. At Arts1 we have a range of Commercial classes for different levels and with different styles, it is feel good and about developing self expression as a dancer and performer.

Commercial is the kind of dancing you see when artists perform live, in music videos, on TV, Film and of course commercials. At Arts1 we LOVE to build confidence and progression as we teach a different combination each week to your favourite songs.
