We run classes covering a huge range of dance genres for ages 4+ through to adults; for beginners, intermediate and advanced. We specialise in Streetdance and offer a huge number of forms including Hip Hop and Breakin (Breakdance), as well as our extremely popular and completely unique 'Funk Fusion' classes.Uniform

At 'Funk it Up', we are passionate about  teaching the correct dance technique, choreography and creativity and offer a number of 'top up' classes including 'Open Practice' and 'Technique' for this reason, all offered at great discount rates for those attending other sessions. We believe that our classes provide an exceptionally positive experience for all those who take part, not only through the dancing itself, but the social networks, group work and dedication involved.

Our open classes are run in Ely, Cambridgeshire at the Paradise Sports Centre and in other surrounding towns and villages. We also run private lessons, birthday parties, wedding preparation and a range of workshop classes for schools and youth centres. Some of our current and past clients include KIng's School, St Johns Primary, Cambridge University, Harbour School, Ely College, Witchford Village College, Ely Brownies, Holiday Play schemes in Ely, Cambridge and Girton, and youth programmes such as South Cambridgeshire's Young Parents scheme. All private classes and programmes are tailored to suit individual needs. Please get in touch to discuss any interests you may have.

We take part in regular, local and regional events, as well as running our annual showcase event and 'Funk It Up' Summer school, bringing in the best and Timetablemost famous dancers on the Streetdance scene from TV, film and stage. This gives participants the chance to dance alongside some well-respected and talented dancers. Past teachers and friends of the school include Britain’s Got Talent and Streetdance and Streetdance 2 movie stars FLAWLESS!, Sky1s Got To Dance Finalists Turbo and Boadicea, and World Champion B-BOY MOUSE!

The school's founder and principle also directs a Streetdance crew called SUSPECTS CRU, which includes dancers aged 9 – 28. SUSPECTS CRU practises all urban and social dance styles together and they perform, teach and battle across the country.
