Here’s what dance instructor Julie has to tell us about Funk it Up classes at Wilder St.

What’s your background as a dancer and dance teacher?

I have been street dancing for 20 years, studying dance at university  and performing around the world as a backing dancer for artists like Peter Andre and tribute bands. I have also danced for over 45,000 people at football stadiums and arenas. I’ve been teaching street dance for 10 years to all different age groups around Wales and Bristol.

There are many benefits of attending classes; not only do our dancers gain strength and fitness, they gain confidence as they learn and meet new friends. We don’t just teach them routines, We teach them how to interact with peers, how to be challenged but more importantly to have fun whilst doing so!

Have any Funk It Up students continued to become professional/semi-professional dancers?

 Some of our students have gone on to work professionally in London performing for music videos, television and for theatre at the West End.

Do you do public shows/festivals etc? Which ones? 

Yes! We perform at many local events, including Harbourside festival and Bristol Balloon festival. We give our dancers lots of opportunities to perform and grow as they do so. We hold shows for family and friends each year which always prove successful.
