Mosaic Dance is a community dance school, teaching creative dance since 1999. The focus of classes is on developing student’s self esteem, creativity, dance technique and most importantly unlock their enjoyment of dance and movement, which will hopefully then stay with them for a lifetime.
Mosaic Dance was formed by Paula Hain in the village of Resolven, South Wales in 1999. Many students grew up attending Paula’s classes and some went on to pursue further and higher dance education and dance careers with huge success. In 2012 Paula moved to Coton, a village outside Cambridge and to her surprise and delight found Coton to be a community eager to embrace creative dance and complete with a newly refurbished village hall it has become a perfect home for the new Mosaic Dance!
Currently classes are running for children in school years Reception – Year 10 (see timetable). Classes do not follow a syllabus at Mosaic Dance, with the focus instead being on creativity and increasing confidence and as these develop, dance technique will naturally follow. Classes have a high level of input from the dancers themselves and this is shown in the wide range of choreography and dance styles covered at Mosaic Dance, from street dance to contemporary, from Indian Bollywood to African Gumboot dance.
The name Mosaic Dance was chosen to reflect the community nature of the dance school, where everyone plays an important part in the big picture.
