Kit Sells

Hi, my name is Kit Sells and i’m a dancer and performer.

For the past 18 months I have been training in Urban practice at Swindon Dance Centre for Advanced Training. During this time I have also attended SPACE (Somerset Performing Arts Centre for Education) in Taunton, where I completed the foundations of ballet, jazz, contemporary and performance.

My main dance style is animation and popping but I am also proficient in locking, breaking, hip-hop, house and performing. When it comes to choreography I have determination to drill those moves in my spare time till it’s sharp as the tip of a pin.

Amongst my other dance passions my favourite is free-styling; is’s chance for a dancer to really display their true colours and emotions.

I believe dance is in my blood and the opportunity to work for a dance academy is a dream come true

During her time with Sublime the group have won several competitions including the 2019 UDO British Championships and have showcased their skills on this year’s Britain’s Got Talent.
