Stan started his dance career with Jemma at The Dance Centre in Llandrindod Wells. He moved on to breaking in 2015 having lessons with Bgirl Rosa in Aberystwyth. Since then he has had lessons with many Top UK and International Bboys including Boost, Didge, Mouse, LB, Poe One, Bruce Wayne, Thesis, Sunni and many more. He is leading the UK Breaking League for his age group but his ultimate goal is to become Red Bull BC One World Champion. He loves sharing his knowledge and passion for breaking and is looking forward to working with Jemma and Powys Dance this summer.

" I have always loved to dance, experiment and push myself and my body to try new things. That's what I love most about breaking, that freedom to experiment and challenge yourself is just the best feeling! Plus you get to create your own dance persona which is fun, it's playful creative and cool and I can't wait to have the opportunity to ignite that passion in young dancers this Summer!"

ABOUT JEMMA

Jemma has been a dance practitioner with Powys Dance for 8 years and in that time she has been passionate about making dance fun and accessible to as many people as possible. Being creative, learning technique, upbeat dance routines, exploration on a theme, she loves it all, and is so enthused when it comes to the endless possibilities of dance. She is dedicated to her participants and supports them through whatever avenue they choose to take with dance.

‘For me it’s all about having a good time, I want people to first and foremost enjoy dancing, then if they want to take their dancing further I am with them all away, but if they just fancy an uplifting hour in the week to have a boogie, I’m also right by their side!

I don’t ever stick to a specific style, I like to teach a well rooted dance technique to all, to ensure safety and opportunities to improve but I tend to do what I feel people want, one week it might be full on creative exploration and the next it might be some killer street moves, who knows, that’s the best part about dance, it fits any mood!”
