Through energetic, creative tasks our Juniors class enables children to develop their skills and confidence with movement, dance and enjoy an introduction to choreography.

Led by our specialist teacher, children have the opportunity to think, play, learn and grow through dance.  Our classes build participants' body and spatial awareness, control and coordination, quality of movement, rhythm and timing as well as developing their creative ideas into choreography, all within a fun, supportive environment. This class supports children to develop confidence, expand their movement vocabulary and choreograph their own dance sequences.
