Bradford Dance Centre

Folk like to knock Bradford.  I don't know why because it is a city of over 500,000 souls with some fine buildings such as Bradford Cathedral, City Hall, the National Media Museum and Salt's Mill. It has St George's Hall, the oldest concert hall in current use in the UK and the Alhambra Theatre which stages world class drama, opera and dance. Not only that but it has produced such great names as Frederick Delius, J. B. Priestley and David Hockney. It has also produced some fine dancers like Thomas Whitehead and Brandon Lawrence. The city has magnificent parks and open spaces including the new City Park with its mirror pool and it is surrounded by beautiful countryside.

Bradford will soon have three other major attractions:
The last of these is a is a new creative space located at 108 - 114 Sunbridge Road which is very close to the Westfield and the Odeon and will open in August 2015.  

According to the Centre's website it will provide a professional, dedicated dance space and creative hub with the primary aim of advancing, encouraging, promoting and facilitating learning, education, training and personal development in dance. To be more specific 
"Bradford Dance Centre has 4,500 square feet of dedicated dance space, with three professional dance studios, changing facilities, a kitchenette, office and meeting room space and a large, open communal reception area, perfect for informal gatherings and networking."
For those intending to make a career in dance it offers a Foundation Course in Professional Contemporary Dance (QCF Level 1-4) and a Diploma in Dance Teaching - Children and Young People (QCF Level 6). For the rest of us it promises to offer adult dance classes.   I hope that will include ballet.  Whatever they offer I will take one of the courses and review it.
