Who are we & what do we offer?
The A Team was established in 2016, with just three competitive Street Dance teams in little old Baxenden Conservative Club. These teams are the real founders of 'The A Team'. We never had a name, and Abbie never liked the idea of calling them ‘Abbie Lindsay Dance’, so she decided on the more subtle link to her forename, by naming each of her teams with a word beginning with ‘A’. They always called themselves ‘AAA’, so when we finally had to name ourselves for a performance altogether, we randomly decided on The A Team and it stuck. We have come a long way since then, and we are now based at our very own premesis in Accrington, which includes three large dance studios and lots of super talented dancers!
We offer a wide range of dance styles, including Street Dance, Contemporary Dance, Musical Theatre Dance, Cheer Dance, Commercial Latin & Ballroom, and Acro. We have also started to expand our fitness timetable and we offer a variety of classes, including our favourite, HIITSTEP. Whether you are looking for a fun weekly hobbie, a work out, or even competitive training, we have something for everybody! All ages and abilities are equally welcome.
