Ever since that nice young lad won 'Britain's Got Talent' with his breakdancing routine, my kids have developed happy feet. Along with thousands of other pre-teens across the country, they've been practising their "moves". Yes, breakdancing is back, and it's big.

You can tell it's a hot trend, because a new summer club devoted to this art form has just opened at the five-star Sani Resort in Halkidiki, Greece (00 30 23740 99500; saniresort.gr). Groovin' wannabes aged 12 and over get to spend their days at Breakdancing Camp, doing back spins and belly swims under the eye of a professional. Meanwhile, you get to sun yourself on the hotel's private beach or avail yourself of the resort's inexhaustible spa facilities.

Other top hotels that have caught on to the craze include La Manga Club (00 34 968 331234; lamangaclub.com). The exclusive holiday resort on the south-east coast of Spain has extended its Dance Academy to include street dancing and salsa. It caters for all ages, and its choreographer promises to transform your little mover into a star of the dance floor.

But for something really different, check out Abercrombie & Kent (0845 6182200; abercrombiekent.co.uk), which is offering kids the chance to learn capoieira, a Brazilian dance combining African rhythms with martial art and street dance. The Careta Careta Club at Praia do Forte in Bahia, Brazil, will have the kids busy from dawn till dusk.

With all this on offer, our TV talent shows will have even more fodder next year.
