We wrote this song way back at the beginning of our journey in 2014. We knew instantly that this song had a special power to it. We also knew that we would release it when the time was right. Well the time is now. Featuring a wonderful member of our group this year called Sophie, this song is all about rising up when haters hate and life gets tough. It celebrates courage, resilience and shining your unique light into the world with power and abandon. We all have a unique magic inside us that the world needs and will leave it a better place. Enjoy
This project was as much fun as it looks! We had the BEST time with these awesome kids at this very special school in Bradford. We really wanted to help them create a song that captured that unique energy and spirit – built around their motto of “Believe and Succeed” and running the race of life with courage and endurance. With a “School of Rock” feel – we totally love the finished piece. Enjoy!
We are so excited to share this incredible piece of work that the children at Windmill C of E created with us. Their own school anthem called The Windmill Way truly captures their special spirit, their kind heart as a community and their total awesomeness as a school. We are very proud of you all and well done on an amazing project. Thank you for having us!

We are struggling to put into words how much we enjoyed performing at Leeds Arena for the TeachFirst Conference 2019 yesterday. It was a dream come true and to see the kids from 5 of our favourite partner schools shining and bursting with power and courage was incredible. The atmosphere was electric, the crowd were awesome and we are filled with gratitude for the opportunity. We certainly brought the Class Dynamix vibe to the party!
A huge thank you to the organisers, every staff member who came and supported, our sponsors and partners for Light Up For Leeds, all the parents who came along and most importantly to all the kids. You are Class Dynamix. What a night.
