Marcia’s Dance Centre is a dance centre in Calpe offering a wide range of dance styles including Jazz, Tap, Modern & Ballet for dance classes for all ages and abilities. They specialise in training both amateur and professional dancers by enhancing and developing your dancing knowledge. As well as preparing our students for a stage career, gaining their teachers qualifications or simply grade examinations and medals as a dancer, they can offer acting, singing, and music classes to compliment your dancing skills. With their expertise, absolute beginners can learn to dance to a standard suitable to their requirements (For example, that special dance at your Wedding, Christmas Party or special event) or if you just wish to seek some extra enjoyment from your dancing, they can develop a programme designed especially for you. The History The Dance Centre was established back in 1979, when Marcia moved to Spain with her family. She had previously owned and run a very successful dance school in England for many years known as The Thanet Dance Studio. Now under the leadership of Phaedra she has continued to grow the stage school to what it is today. They were also one of the first English owned dance centres to join the Spanish dance society SIPBE (La Sociedad Internacional de Profesores de Baile en España) and enter candidates for examinations and media. The primary focus is on teaching good basic technique, which they know to be the foundation of dance practiced today along with personal development, character and pleasure in dancing. Classes begin with a structured warm up to enable students to dance and move in a safe way. The class then covers dance exercises to develop strength and technique. The remainder of the class is spent learning a routine whilst also working on style and performance.
