About Shana Keeler

Shana Keeler began dancing from a young age and gained a real passion for dancing and performing. Starting off at a local dance school, Shana has gone on to win championships, titles and a range of competitions. With a real drive for her dancing, Shana then successfully auditioned for Preston Dance College, gaining advanced exams before auditioning again, this time for Phil Winston’s Theatreworks.

Shana began teaching at the age of 25 at a school in Altrincham. Since then, she has never looked back, with her love for teaching growing every day. Currently the principle of her own successful performing arts school, Shana Keeler’s School of Dance & Performing Arts demonstrates the passion and skills she will bring to Lil Beatz.

Shana has been principal at Shana Keeler’s School of Dance for 5 years, continuously growing, achieving awards and choreography nominations. Shana’s passion for teaching has been obvious, being goal driven and nurturing young dance talent for all to see. Having also been nominated for awards and progressing to become an IDTA examiner, Shana has worked hard to keep her own training at the highest level to get the best from all her students!

Shana is the perfect person to drive Lil Beatz forward and encourage street dance in Wythenshawe. Having 3 years of professorial training before graduating and travelling all over on many dance jobs and styles, we are happy to have her on board.

Is Street Dance In Your Future?

Street Dance Future

Whilst street dance may only seem like a hobby right now, it can actually be a great career path. Nobody knows what they want to do when they are young but street dance can always help with creativity, as well as getting young children involved in a range of dance styles.

Lil Beatz help all young dancers begin their street dance careers. We develop your skills during fun dance classes so it can always be part of your future.

Beginning Street Dance Classes

If your child is always dancing around the house, signing them up for dance classes is the best way for them to express their enthusiasm and improve their dancing talent. Whilst there are many dance styles, street dance can be a much more fun option for many young dancers. Plus, street dancing is much cooler than any other dancing styles!

Street dancing has been performed in the best music videos and by the best artists for years now. Giving your child the opportunity to learn street dancing could set them on a fantastic career path or at least give them the chance for this with some basic dancing skills under their belt.

Range of Street Dance Types

Unlike many dance styles, there are several types of street dance. These dance styles can be used in individual dances or all combined into one routine. At Lil Beatz, we give every dancer the chance to show off your own dance moves to create the best routine. Just some types of street dance include:

  • Animation
  • Breakdancing
  • Hip Hop
  • House
  • Krumping
  • Locking
  • Popping
  • Tap Dance
  • Techno

With so many street dances, you can always find your strengths and learn many different dance skills. Our classes are available for ages 2-6 years, so no matter what your dancing is like, we will help you improve! We want every young dancer to learn their strengths and enjoy all street dance classes.

Can You Be A Street Dancer?

Developing your skills from a young age is the best way to help you become a street dancer. If your son or daughter already has a passion for street dancing, it is essential you sign them up for classes. The only way to improve your dancing is through regular practice and working with our dance teachers at Lil Beatz, your children can learn so much about dance in a short space of time.

Age has never been an issue with dance, with many young dancers going on to be successful. It is never too early to begin your dancing career and with our dance classes, you have the perfect platform to excel in dancing. Even if you decide street dancing isn’t the right style for you, it gives you fantastic dancing skills for the future.

What an incredible 3 months we have had here at Lil Beatz. We really appreciate all the support we have received from parents and family members and could not have asked for a better start.

We are sure that you will love everything we have planned, whether this is our new clothes or routines for Lil Beatz dancers. 2019 will give many more children opportunities in street dance as we continue to develop our routines.

Street Dance Goals At Lil Beatz

Lil Beatz Street Dance Goals

Lil Beatz aim to bring many young children into the street dance community. Both our founders have a passion for helping young children stay fit and develop their dance skills and Lil Beatz offers the perfect platform for every youngster.

Our founders, Vicci Small and Adam Blakey, recently outlined the goals for Lil Beatz. As our street dance classes continue, we want to make sure every young dancer is excelling.

Dealing With Obesity

Adult obesity is a real problem in the Blackpool area and this can all start from a young age. Recently speaking to the Blackpool Gazette, Adam said: “Blackpool has some problems with obesity, diabetes and lack of exercise and so Lil Beatz is a good way to get young children active with something they are interested in.

Having previously experienced problems with obesity from a young age, Adam has a big desire to see obesity levels lower. The figures outline this issue in Blackpool, especially among females. Over 24.4% of males and 26.8% of females are obese or morbidly obese as an adult. For children currently in reception, 27% were either obese or overweight in 2017/18.

This demonstrates the influence that being overweight from a young age can cause, with similar stats with children and adults. Taking part in street dance classes and having regular exercise can significantly reduce these problems. By preventing obesity, you also reduce the chances of having chronic conditions and developing poor metal health and heart problems.

Starting this process from a young age is so important. If you have an interest in street dance, Lil Beatz is the perfect opportunity to stay fit.

Developing Street Dance

Whilst we want to help children stay fit, Lil Beatz want to develop all street dance skills. Whether you have a passion for dance or want to start a hobby, Lil Beatz are looking to drive more and more young children into street dance.

Vicci Small has danced since she was just three years old. Since then, she has travelled all over the world and despite being classically trained for 18 years, she has now ventured into hip-hop and street dance. Having performed street dance in London for several years and always wanting to inspire youth to join street dance, the idea of Lil Beatz was created.

Vicci is now taking on and developing a number of young dancers between the ages of 2-6. Along with Danielle Clark, Natalie Rice and Rachael Spencer, Lil Beatz are developing a number of young dancers. With classes for young children, Lil Beatz can improve fitness and dance skills from a young age. Furthermore, we are involving more and more children in a fun and creative dance style.

Launching The Lil Beatz Brand

Whilst Lil Beatz wants to help children in the local areas to stay fit and develop dance style, we want to go even further. Lil Beatz aims to help children throughout the UK to become more involved in street dance. With our own Lil Beatz clothing, we really want to push our brand to get everyone involved.

We also want people to take part with Busta Beatz and our Runna Rabbit dance! Lil Beatz have already got children in Blackpool to take part in the street dance sensation and as we spread from Blackpool to the UK, everyone should be enjoying our street dance animation and street dance classes.

If you would like more information or to book street dance classes, contact Lil Beatz. You can visit any of our Facebook pages for Blackpool North, Blackpool South and Southport. We will always provide a fast response to get your child involved in street dance classes immediately!
