Mampara Dance Cheerleading Barnes Jets All Stars

Mampara Dance Cheerleading Barnes Jets All StarsMampara Dance was founded in 2011 by Natalie Hunt to bring a fresh burst of dance and fitness to the city, teaching a whole range of cheerleading and dance classes. Her Barnes Cheerleading & Dance Academy for children aged 6-16yrs is well-established in the local area and runs at a couple of venues.

Mampara Dance Cheerleading Barnes Jets All StarsNatalie has trained with the IDTA, RAD, Birmingham Dance Exchange, Barre Concept, UKCA, BGU, and Swing Train, and she teaches at lots of schools and academies across London (including East Sheen Primary, Thomson House, Orleans, Tiffin Girls, Sadler’s Wells, Dance Attic, City Academy, and Vida Studios).  As a cheerleader she has performed and coached for England Basketball, the Oval Twenty20 Cricket, American Football Premier League and the RFC.  Her performance credits include dancing with Diversions Dance Company, Wayne Sleep at The New Theatre, Tony Lundon, and Ashley Banjo of Diversity.

Cheerleading: This is the fastest growing sport in the UK and has just been made a provisional Olympic sport. At Mampara Dance, children learn the foundations of cheerleading dance, chants, tumbling, jumps and stunts, together with the principles of musicality, choreography, creativity, team work, coordination, body awareness and body conditioning – all whilst having a cheerfully great time!

Dance: Mampara Dance teaches jazz dance and jazz funk / street jazz, which is the perfect foundation in both classical and commercial technique. Children learn the foundation of both classical and commercial dance with a programme combining jazz (classical) and jazz funk / street (commercial) as a great platform for all further Western dance styles. They develop musicality, choreography, creativity, coordination and body conditioning – all whilst having a lot of fun!
