Uppingham: Dance Activity


You’ll be amazed at the range of activities, sport and entertainments we offer! They vary every day. Some are very challenging, some simply just fun, but all help you develop your fluency in English.

See a Sample Timetable or list of available Sports & Activities


The afternoon programme is divided into multi-activities and clubs. Each day, you'll choose from a range of multi-activity sessions e.g. arts & crafts, cooking, IT - and range of different sports. On most days you'll choose one, two or even three different activities. See our activity grid for the list of some of the activities offered at each centre. Some such as archery, circus skills, drumming, samba and steel pans are truly awesome!

Club sessions are when you do the same type of activity two or three times in one week. If you choose Racquets Club, it means you'll try different racquet sports such as tennis, badminton, squash and even, Real Tennis. If you choose English Sports, you'll try cricket, croquet and tag rugby. Whatever you choose, you'll improve your skills as you'll have had more time to practise.


Special Sports Options (Horse-riding, Tennis, Water Sports) are offered on one or two afternoons a week at most centres. They are optional and at extra cost. You'll be taught in groups by professional trainers/coaches. Because the groups are small, you'll learn a lot in a short time. Click here for full details.
