In July 2009 more than 30 girls took part in the first ever Cheermania Summer camp! Over two separate weeks students between the ages of 4 and 16 came together to experience all the highs and lows ofcheerleading - a taster of what it is like to work as a team. Our cheerleaders learnt jumps, stunts, tumbling and dance. Cheermania has since held many holiday workshops, our annual summer camp, and opened weekly classes for all ages in 2010.

Draper's Dance began when Raymond Draper left his mining tradition to start a career in dance. He originally taught at rented halls in Killamarsh and Southall, before purchasing the old Miners Welfarein Beighton with his wife Carol, to ensure his pupils didn't miss out when a hall booking was cancelled. On the first night they taught one pupil, adding to numbers as the nights went on.
All of our teachers are experienced and fully qualified or working towards the IDTA (International Dance Teachers Association) teaching qualifications and are all CRB checked. We believe that everyonelearns through fun and enjoyment - both children and adults alike!
