Jubilee 2 Improvements
16 May 2019 Local News
Improvements are being made at a Council-run leisure centre in Newcastle-under-Lyme to make way for an enhanced dance programme.
A ballet barre and floor length mirror are being installed in the activity studio at ‘Jubilee 2’ so that it can accommodate specialised ballet and dance-based sessions run by ‘Daniel Jones DANCE’.
Daniel, a former English National Ballet dancer from Clayton, already runs a variety of different classes at ‘Jubilee 2’ five days a week and the centre is used by Staffordshire Youth Ballet for its elite training scheme which aims to inspire and nurture young and talented dancers.
Work is taking place this week and is expected to be completed by Friday.
Robert Foster, Head of Leisure and Cultural Services, said: “It’s excellent news that the activity room, which is already a brilliant place for spinning, is becoming a dual purpose area that can also be enjoyed by dancers of all ages and abilities.
“The existing dance facilities at Jubilee2 are second to none and regarded as among the best in North Staffordshire and beyond. This work will build on that excellent reputation even further and allow us to offer an expanded dance programme.
Other facilities at Jubilee2 include a 25-metre swimming pool, training pool, 110-station gym, climbing wall and a café. The Leisure Centre also hosts children’s parties, aqua fitness sessions and group exercise classes. For more information, visit www.jubilee2.com or call 01782 616606.
