DANCE, FITNESS, ARTS AND WELLBEING IN SCHOOLS
KICKSTEP WAS FOUNDED IN 2006 BY SISTERS ETTA AND VERITY BELL.
BOTH DANCERS, ACTORS AND YOGIS, THEY DISCOVERED A LOVE FOR TEACHING THEIR PASSION TO CHILDREN AND IT GREW FROM THERE.
From two employees we have grown to a team of 20 passionate, inspired and experienced teachers, working in over 100 schools across London over the last 8 years.
We are dedicated to increase self esteem, confidence and fitness in our next generation.
We offer EVERY type of dance, yoga, capoiera, meditation, fitness and arts as clubs, workshops and holiday programmes.
We can tailor your progamme or workshop in any way you want, so please get in touch if you have an unusual request.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We look around the world and we understand that knowing your body, full expression of movement, optimum health and wellbeing is a life necessity, not a luxury.
We know that success is not luck. Success is getting up every morning, putting on our movement gear, rolling up our sleeves and getting to work. We convey this to our students.
Without each other, we have nothing. We respect and honour each individual. We listen. We keep it professional. We lead by example. There is nothing we ask of others that we have not done ourselves. We give more than we take. We approach each class with optimism and fun.
We want to make a difference. We have a vision of the world where kids are healthy, strong, connected, happy and relaxed.
We believe that the relationshop between the teacher and the student should be an equal one. When coming together as a group, like we do, everybody learns from the experience and grows from it. Everyone is as vulnerable and powerful as each other. Therefore the environment is one of learning together, as a group, where students (and teacher) share with each other. In this atmosphere students are much more open to learn as there is no fear of making mistakes or letting go of inhibitions and securities. If someone makes a mistake they are not wrong or bad, just learning. Once this is experienced we begin to see that everyone is the same and equal and this is one of the most empowering things to experience. This is what builds self-esteem and confidence and an understanding of other people is developed.
