So this week and last week we have invited the local schools to come and take part in some FREE WORKSHOPS!!

They all arrived and we sat round and introduced ourselves. We then took them on a tour of the Theatre as not many people had been before. After that, the children picked out a costume and had to decide what their character was going to be based on that costume. We had loads of fun creating different scenarios and they thoroughly enjoyed being on the stage in the spotlight.

We then went on to learn a street dance to the very popular “Uptown Funk” which the children went crazy for! They picked up the dance so quickly and we performed it for their teachers with the music up loud and the lights flashing like a disco! It was so lovely to see girls AND boys enjoying themselves dancing, that’s what we love the most!

We are hoping that these free workshops will encourage more children to come along and join our youth theatre classes, especially the boys, as girls definitely outnumber the boys at present!

If you would like any more information, please don’t hesitate to give us a ring on 01229 775677 or email or, we are happy to answer all of your questions!

Hope to see your lovely faces soon 🙂


Love Jess x

Here at The Beggar’s Theatre we like to include everyone but we understand that some boys may not want to join in an all girls dance class, so our solution, BOYS DANCE EVERY TUESDAY 4PM-5PM!!

Come along and learn new dance moves in all kinds of styles, meet new friends and have some fun! We will be working towards a new Dance Show which we will be performing this December! It will be a chance to show your family and friends what you have learnt over the months.

Classes usually cost £35 for 10 weeks but as this is a 12 week term, you will be getting the first 2 weeks FREE! We do not charge for extra rehearsals that may be needed for dance show rehearsals.

For more info please give us a call on 01229 775677

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Well our new term starts today with so much to offer each and every one of you! From Pre-school to Adults, we have it all!

I am really excited about our new dance classes starting this term. Every Tuesday at 10.30am we have Pre-school Dance and Play, so bring your child along, they can have a dance and play (with a drink and biscuit too) and you can enjoy a relaxed hour of gossip over a lovely cup of tea or coffee, what’s not to like about that?

Then we have our Boys dance every Tuesday at 4pm, we will be exploring many different forms of dance and working towards a dance show in December!

Our usual classes will be back too starting today with Infant’s Dance at 3.45pm, then Senior’s Dance at 5pm and then finishing off the day with our Adult Strictly Class at 7.30pm.

Junior’s Dance will start back on Wednesday at 5pm where we will be working towards our dance show.

We are aiming to do two dances per class this year for our show which has an “Animal” theme so all the songs used will have an animal in the title!

As this term is a 12 week term, we will still be offering you the classes at the normal price (£30 for infants dance and £35 for Juniors, Seniors and Boys) which means you will be getting 2 weeks FREE! We do not charge for any extra rehearsals we may need for the show but we do ask that you provide the relevant costumes for the show!

We look forward to seeing you all very soon,

Love Jess x

Dance @ Moore Arts: Millom, The Beggar’s Theatre!

Posted on: June 29, 2015 in the category DancelatestYouth Theatre by Jakki Moore

Hi Folks Jess here,

Here is my first Blog about what we get up to in our Dance Classes .  Here at Moore Arts: Millom, The Beggar’s Theatre, we offer a range of dance classes for all abilities. We start at age 4 and go right up to our Strictly dance class for Adults! We aim to encourage the children to learn new things but also have their own input into choreography. Over the years our dance classes have expanded and so has the variety of dance we offer. The Infant dancers (Reception-Year 2) have been  ‘Cats‘ this term, the Junior dancers (Year 3 – Year 6) have been ‘Cheer Leaders’ and the Seniors dancers (Year 7+) have been focussing on Michael Jackson’s Beat It’. My lovely group of ladies and gentleman in my Strictly Dance class have been dancing the Foxtrot, Waltz, Cha Cha Cha and Salsa.

We do have spaces available in all our classes at the moment, if you would like some more information, give us a call on 01229 775677 or find us on Facebook and Twitter!!


Be lovely to see some new faces in the Autumn.
