Burge School of Dancing
We have been teaching dance for the last 20 years and are very pleased that we now have our dance studio. Within the school we teach various styles of dance including latin, ballroom, salsa, contemporary, lyrical, street and musical theatre. We hold regular medal tests, enter competitions and hold a show every year, all of which are not compulsory. Each class you attend is on a pay as you go basis, so no terms fees are involved. Our main aim is to bring the enjoyment of dance to you at whatever age and level you choose.
We also have four dance crews within the school who are reaching the finals of major competitions.

Back in 1953 Frank Muir decided to put his considerable talents into forming an amateur drama group based at the Thorpe Village Hall. All the members were local people who enjoyed performing. Although none of the original members are with us today, many are long standing (some for over 30 years) and several are second generation Thorpe Players. One of the reasons that people stay with the group is its friendly, almost family-like atmosphere, where everyone pulls together to put on a production and, most importantly, ensure that we have fun doing it.
