Our Aim:

Here at Shockout Academy, we wish to provide a training school for raw- talented individuals who would like to take their training to the next step. We look at building upon skillsets within genres such as hip hop foundations, ballet technique, jazz technique, tap and many more.

We aim to push our students understanding within the core values and expectations of the commercial dance industry as well as the knowledge and development of hip-hop foundational training, jazz technique and industry practice. We aim to elevate our youth by putting them through their paces within a training day which can offer a diverse and full range of classes twice a week.

Whilst open to everyone, Shockout Academy is a selective training school, with only a limited number of places available. The opportunity to audition will be listed under a first come first serve basis and audition dates and times will be provided on our website
