A NOTE FROM HELEN: ‘I began Children’s Contemporary Dance 5 years ago after noticing a need for a place where young people can be free to explore movement, encouraged to express themselves and guided to develop a creative voice. Over the past 5 years, the school has grown and established itself as a connecting point for many local families and children. As I will be moving back to Canada in the Summer of 2020, I have made a careful decision to hand the school over to Traceworks Dance. I chose Traceworks company because of their quality of teaching, dedication and commitment to the South East London dance community and the exciting opportunities that they can offer to the children with B40 Youth Dance Company, the professional company and their vision for further development.’

Each year the school puts on a dance show in SE16 for friends and family, it is a wonderful chance to celebrate the achievement of each student!

‘Helen’s passion for dance sets a very creative and positive tone so the lessons are always fun as well as focused. Sarah has learnt different techniques and developed the confidence to improvise and formulate her own choreography.’  – Parent of Sarah, CCD student 2017
