We are dance

Providing opportunities for all to realise their creative potential through dance

Hype Dance

Hype Dance Company was founded in 2004 and is based in the centre of Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

Hype Dance Company is a not-for-profit organisation that offers dance classes, workshops & lessons for all ages & abilities at our Sheffield based dance studios or at your venue. We are inclusive, friendly & welcoming and - as you would expect - all of our tutors are fully qualified professionals, we are insured as well as being members of the Council for Dance, Drama & Muscial Theatre (CDMT).

Dance classes are available in Ballet, ModernJazz, Tap, Acro, Street, Hip Hop, Contemporary, Creative, Jazz, Stretch, Heels, Pole, Acting, Fitness, Parent & Toddler & more. Students are given the opportunity to perform at various events in the region throughout the year and at our annual show.

Our professional productions are emotive and physically charged dance theatre that tour the country. Upcoming productions include Mode: Default, based on dance and dementia & Dali's Guest, a piece performed in a cabaret setting and inspired by the effects of cancer on the body.

Through our community work we offer dance in education, from general workshops to sessions designed specifically to enhance the curriculum. Our dancers can come in and work with a group to create a piece for performance in any dance style and are experienced in delivering all the elements of GCSE dance, A Level dance, BTEC dance and OCN qualifications.
