BEING involved in the dance industry for many years, Upper Highway’s Bronwyn Whittington wishes to help aspiring dancers achieve their dream of learning the art of dance and achieving stardom with their newfound talent.

Whittington established the Extreme Dance Company in 2014 and offers classes in hip-hop, freestyle and aerial arts for children. In addition, the dance company also offers adult classes for beginners and novice dancers.

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

Speaking about her love for dance and the accolades she has achieved throughout her amateur competitive dance
career, she said: “I won over 130 trophies and medals at many national dance competitions.”

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

When asked why she chose the name “Extreme Dance Company”, as her studio’s name she 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 they are.

“We aim to shape and polish our dancers and by entering them into competitions and exams teaches them how to win, and how to lose.”

Classes at the studio range from hip-hop, aerial hammock, hi-energy freestyle, disco and children’s PoleFit.

Since the studio’s conception countless dancers have taken part in national and local freestyle and hip-hop competitions in South Africa and have won more than 400 trophies and medals, achieving from first to seventh place positions.

Members have also maintained an average of 88% and above for their Sadta-accredited yearly dancing exams.
