Simply Street

Simply Street is an easy to learn, pre-choreographed, Hip Hop influenced dance programme.  It is designed to get people moving, by equipping leaders to lead a Simply Street session. As well as pre-choreographed routines that can be learned from online tutorials, Simply Street leaders will also learn how to develop their own routines; keeping their sessions, fresh fun and exciting. 
All ages can enjoy Simply Street but is particularly suitable for young people and children. If you believe in the importance of physical activity and are keen to see people experience the benefits it brings then Simply Street is perfect for you.
