Dance school celebrates 10th Anniversary


B Creative Limited is celebrating 10 years of being in business this November.

The school offers classes in street dance for all ages, as well as Zumba and STRONG Nation classes for adults.

street dance is an alternative to more traditional forms of dance, and a spokesperson said that the 'urban' vibe has proved to be popular amongst both boys and girls.

B Creative Director Brandi Attewell returned to Guernsey to offer street dance classes after studying at SLP College in Leeds. She set up the school in 2010, but it wasn't until 2017 that B Creative became a full-time endeavour.

"We've been based in a number of venues over the years, but street dance has found a home at the Healthy Lifestyle Centre at Beau Sejour, Zumba at St Stephen's Community Centre and STRONG Nation at the Performing Arts Centre and Cobo Community Centre," she said.

"We're able to provide more classes for children and now also host B Creative parties. We have slick new branding thanks to Rock and Small, and we have new Hype uniform thanks to HS2. We take crews to Jersey to compete in the Island Jam competition, and bring pioneer street dancers over to do workshops."

"It's so awesome to see street dance students performing and really going for it. I have students dancing with me who started when they were six years old, and now they're 16 and it's unbelievable to see how far they've come.

"At Zumba, seeing and hearing how much people love your classes means the world! And seeing people's fitness results and how good they feel about themselves with STRONG Nation is equally rewarding."

With the recent establishment of a collaboration with KD Dance, the next decade is expected to be just as eventful. Ms Attewell has taken the opportunity to reflect on this milestone.

"With covid-19 and lockdown it's been a strange year, so I'm thankful we're able to celebrate," she said.

"We're putting on a festival for all B Creative Dance students at Les Beaucamps High School on Sunday, 8 November. We'll be raising money for two fantastic charities: the Ivy Trust and Friends of Frossard Children's War. We're expecting about 500 students to come along and take part in all sorts of activities for the afternoon, and then at the end they will be showing friends and family their dance moves on stage.

"I'm planning to celebrate with my Zumba and STRONG Nation members in January with some bubbles, good food and good company. And of course there will be dancing!"
