Universal Dance starts virtual classes

Online classes are being launched by Universal Dance as face-to-face contact is restricted by the Coronavirus.

The organisation will be running a reduced timetable from April 6, with virtual classes broadcast live through the Zoom platform.

Different packages are available so that classes can be tailored to a variety of ages and preferences. They will include an adult street dance class.

Lindsay Willis-Wood who runs Universal Dance with Jess Lloyd said: “UD Virtual  is a new venture to keep our students – and others who are interested – active and interacting with each other, and us, throughout these difficult times.


“We are trying to hone in on the specific styles of dance and arts that children enjoy the most, Street Dance, Contemporary, Ballet, Commercial, Musical Theatre and group singing.

“We have also added in family fitness programmes where the whole family, or parent and child, can have creative times together, perhaps with the children making up dance choreography based on their favourite story, in the comfort of their own home accompanied by whoever is looking after them.” 

Those signing up to take part will be sent a link to their class the day before it takes place. Then they need to make sure they log on to a Zoom ‘meeting’ at the time of their class.


When the class starts they will be able to see your UD teacher, and see and hear each other.

Free live content is also going to be posted on Universal Dance Instagram and Facebook pages – UniDance1 on Instagram, UniversalDance onFacebook.

And there will continue to be tutorials on the Universal Dance YouTube account at UniDance100.

In addition daily fitness challenges will be posted by Jess on Instagram and Facebook.
