Mom starts new street dance lessons


CHILDREN and adults can now learn to dance in new classes.

Winsford’s mom, Jessica Beckett, started teaching street dancing to children at St Andrew’s Methodist Church on Dingle Lane in Winsford every Tuesday evening.

The mother of a child also organizes ballroom and Latin sessions for adults.

“I can guarantee that in the first lesson everyone will be able to dance a waltz,” said Jessica, 26, a qualified instructor with the International Dance Teachers Association.

“You don’t need to have any experience. It’s a chance to gain confidence, make new friends, and improve your fitness.”

Jessica, who has a daughter, is skilled in many styles including street dancing, freestyle, ballroom, Latin, rock and roll, ballet, and tap dance.

“I love to dance,” she said. “I’ve always taught dance and wanted to make it a full time passion. I want everyone to see what you can get out of it.

“We teach street dance to children in the community. Our mission is to help all children in Winsford and the surrounding area discover the benefits of dancing.

“We don’t just teach dance, we focus on discipline and respect.”

A free trial class is offered the first week. Children and adults can just show up.

“I can’t wait for everyone to come as a beginner and learn something new every week,” Jessica said. “I want people to believe in themselves that they can do this.”
