Extreme Dance Company is not just for the young, beautiful, graceful and talented, it is for people who are prepared to work hard and who love to dance, no matter what age.

THE Extreme Dance Company, established in 2014, is the brainchild of Bronwyn Whittington, whose mission is to bring back dance to the Upper Highway area.

“I want to pass on my love of dance to all who pass through the studio,” she said.

Throughout her amateur competitive dance career she won over 130 trophies and medals at many national dance competitions. Whittington represented her province at the inter-provincial competition at Sun City. She also completed all her amateur freestyle dance exams and then qualified to teach.

She has qualified as an associate Sadta adjudicator, also affiliated to the South African Dance Foundation (SADF), and affiliated to the South African Dance and Dancesport Council.

When asked why she chose the name “Extreme Dance Company”, Whittington, said: “The word ‘extreme’ is defined as ‘that what exceeds what is normal’.

“Extreme Dance Company is not just for the young, beautiful, graceful and talented, it is for people who are prepared to work hard and who love to dance, no matter what age.
“We aim to shape and polish our dancers and by entering them into competitions and exams it teaches them how to win, and how to lose.”

Classes at the studio range from hip-hop aerial hammock, high-energy freestyle, disco and Kiddie PoleFit.

Since the studio’s conception countless dancers have taken part in national and local freestyle and hip-hop competitions in South Africa.
Extreme Dance Company dancers have won in excess of 400 trophies and medals. These range from first to seventh place. Studio members have also maintained an average of 88% and above for their Sadta-accredited annual dancing exams.
