Join us for a playful introduction to dance and movement.  Each Saturday class is designed for little ones and their parent or carer to take their first steps, discovering a love for dance together. Our approach is child-centred and child-led. 

We create a stimulating environment using props, materials and resources that invite and excite young children to play and move with their grown-ups.  Our specialist teacher will guide you through a series of simple, fun tasks exploring a different theme each week.  Our classes engage young children’s imaginations, extend their movement vocabulary and develop their motor skills and body awareness. We illicit and support the children's creative responses, rather than teaching prescribed set steps.

The class will support children to develop skills in line with their age and developmental milestones, including:

  • Their imagination, inquisitiveness, persistence, discipline and collaborative skills
  • Their ability to communicate ideas through and with the body
  • Body Awareness; control & coordination of the body, expanding and refining movement vocabulary, physical confidence
  • Quality of Movement; moving using a variety of dynamics, speeds, weight, musicality
  • Spatial Awareness; moving using direction, height/level, distance, size, and scale
  • Moving in relation to others; alone, with another, with others and in a group
  • Performance; presenting ideas to others
  • Choreography; selecting movement to communicate an idea or intention
  • Appreciation; observing movement and sharing opinions
  • Soft skills including; Observation, Speaking & Listening, Critical Thinking, Teamwork, Debate and Negotiation, Responding, Leadership, Safe positive physical contact, Non-verbal communication
