It’s fun to dance at the YMCA!

Students from Beaconsfield, our centre in New Malden, are dancing up a storm at their weekly dance lessons at the YMCA Hawker Centre in Ham.

The sessions give the group the perfect opportunity to get some exercise dancing to their favourite songs while having a brilliant time with their peers. Some weeks they are even joined by friends who left college last year, so it’s become a great way to keep in touch.

Going to the Hawker Centre also provides a brilliant opportunity for travel training. The group’s Lecturer, Laura, explained that by taking two buses to the centre means students learn about safe travel, keeping aware of their surroundings, learning a route and identifying which bus to take.

As you can see, our students are having a brilliant time!


As a result of outstanding teaching, over time students make excellent progress and develop the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their goals.
