Strictly Come Bearwood

 With Strictly fever back on our TV screens it seems perfect timing that the new dance academy from Riven Productions opens in Bearwood this Saturday.

With their big launch party only a few days away we caught up with Jennie Sutherland, Riven Productions’ Director, to find out more.

“We are now launching our new dance academy for the local children from 4/5yrs to 16yrs+ and all age group classes are FREE all day. We want to offer so much to our local kids and find some amazing new talent.”

The dance studio will be increasing the number of classes to include weekday evenings for adults and also other specific classes and training for children as well.

The Saturday classes (which start at 10am) focus on training in Musical Theatre Dance and Commercial / Modern dance styles. Jennie explained that children will be able to learn a variety of techniques, dance style and performance skills and to produce an end of term performance (the next one’s in December).

All costumes are included at the dance studio and a FREE (our favourite word again!) t shirt gets given to all academy students! There are no hidden exam fees or extra costs and just one monthly or termly payment depending on your preference.

Riven Productions are a team of professional choreographers who have worked in London’s dance industry over the last 18years.  The company was originally established in 1998.

The studio is based at the Hurst Road Community Centre (near Warley Woods).

If your child has a passion for dancing and would like to put Darcy Bussell out of a job please confirm his/her attendance for this Saturday by emailing Jennie at
