A Funky Step Over The Final Hurdle
This year, as you all know, we’ve been celebrating ten whole years of providing unique, cool and current dance activities for kids of all ages. But there’s one accolade that has really put the cherry on top of the cake, and that’s winning the Kallikids 2015 Award for UK’s Best School-Age Dance Class.
It feels so wonderful to be appreciated and noticed for our original dance service. We have always prided ourselves on moving with the current trends, and listening to what our clients want more of, and this has led us to many new and exciting ventures over the years, including Holiday Courses, Big Screen Boogie, Festival Of Funk and Star Wars Parties, to name but a few. Yet there has always been the constant and unfading popularity and passion for our funky street dance classes. To finally get some recognition for this service, is a real honour.
Kallikids share updates, information and competitions from some of the UK’s best family services from party decorations to baby photographers. From over 1,200 children’s activity and service providers, 190 clubs, places to go and tutors have been nominated for 18 awards – all accredited by Kallikids and recommended by parents. It really is a nod of thanks from families across the UK. We were in a tough category, up against some not so-dissimilar newer companies, toddler friendly services and sparkly websites – but needless to say, after a nail-biting wait, we triumphed!
In our opinion, and hopefully yours too, a Funky Moves class has something magical about it. You can have the shyest, quietest child walk through the door, and within 15 minutes they will be exploring their creativity and physicality with our legendary warm-up game ‘Funky Moves Cool Grooves.’ Once you break down those barriers of self-reservation and peer comparison, that so many kids at school succumb to day in day out, you really start to see the kids let loose and give 100% in the classes. This of course, makes a wonderful environment for everyone there, but also allows us teachers to get the most out of the kids technically as they don’t care if they make a mistake! It really is a win-win.
Thank you to everybody along the way who continues to support us. To those who have left us reviews on the Kallikids site, to those who voted in the early stages of the competition for us and of course, to Kallikids and the judges themselves, for making the right decision and picking Funky Moves as their winner! We will be grinning, celebrating and dancing in the streets for some time to come…
