PURE FUNK DANCE COMPANY.
COMPANY MISSION: To inspire, challenge, and nurture committed young performers.
To be a professional platform of growth for talented young dancer/choreographers.
Founded in 2005 by current Artistic Director, Amy Beveridge, Pure Funk is a dance performance group well known for developing adaptable dancers and choreographers in the Bournemouth and Poole area.
Pure Funk’s passion and focus is commercial dance, and the company's choreographic style works around the variety of strengths the dancers develop, often fusing classical, commercial, contemporary, and street.
Over the years Pure Funk has become a strong platform for budding choreographers and performers, many of whom have gone on to teach, run their own dance organisations, or pursue careers in the professional industry.
Pure Funk Dance Co sessions are held at Winton YMCA Dance Studios:
Seniors 15-21yrs - Thursdays 6:45-9:15pm.
Juniors 9-14yrs (Girl Got Funk) - Mondays 5-7pm.
Contact Amy now for full details of how to join the senior or junior dance company, including upcoming OPEN CLASS dates - designed for potential new members to try out.
NEW from 2012.
As part of the company class sessions Pure Funk now offers training in the brand new UDO Syllabus, the first street dance syllabus written and delivered by industry professionals. Launched April 2012, it is for those who wish to improve in all hip hop styles by learning technique and foundations. The syllabus works perfectly alongside Pure Funk's performance work, aiding individual progression in every dancer.

|Pure Funk is an amazing dance school, full of incredible talent. The teachers are highly skilled, but put fun and energy into their classes. My children have learnt so many types of streetdance from these classes, and I would highly recommend Pure Funk for kids and adults wanting to learn streetdance and have some fun with dance! If you get a chance to check out their yearly shows at Poole Lighthouse, its well worth it - as good as any Streetdance film you have seen!!|

|I have attended many of pure funk's dance |
classes and also belong to their performance
company. The advanced adult classes which
are run on a monday night are always of a
high standard consisting of a thorough warm
up and challenging routine. The routines are
different every week and are based around
the hip hop style but always slightly vary in
style. Every week without fail i leave that
dance class with a sense of achievement and
i always have a really enjoyable time.
As i said i also belong to the performance
group which you get in to through an
audition, we perform at numerous events
across bournemouth and have rehearsals
every sunday. The rehearsals are always
conducted in a very professional manner and
we get allot done in that time. Pure funk is
run by two very inspirational and passionate
people called Amy and Exlis. They are both
exceptionally talented individuals and good
at what they do but aside from that they are
supportive towards all of us and are always
