Arch 197 is not just an intriguing new dance venue in west London,
but the realisation of an ambition for street dancer Joshua
With a “professional dance floor, lighting and state-of-the-art sound system” Arch 197 offers an intriguing mix of professionally run dance sessions that embrace, Street Dance, Breakdance, Latin, Total Belly Dance, Ballet and Bollywood, as well as fitness sessions. Inspired by Michael Jackson, Josh, with support of friends and family set about raising funds for the venture and the challenging task of finding an affordable location. Based in a railway arch by Stamford Brook station on the District line, Arch 197 offers the opportunity “to help children and adults achieve their fullest potential.”
On a topical note friends of Josh Ashley Gracebook and Glen Murphy dancing duo Twist and Pulse have just become runners up on “Britain’s got Talent”.
Harlequin Fiesta is a dance floor well suited for Arch 197’s varied repertoire of dance styles, providing a realistic maple strip pattern but without the limitations of a traditional wood floor.
