Dance for Pre-Schoolers

First Steps: A first dance class for girls & boys aged 3-4. We explore varied music, rhythms & basic dance steps, using props, imagination and stories. It's a lovely way for children who are able to separate from their parents to take their own first dance steps...

Next Steps: The next step on the ladder for girls & boys aged 4-5. We develop our exploration of varied music, rhythms & dance steps, using props, imagination and stories. By the time they are 5 they will have a basic vocabulary of steps and directions which they can demonstrate consistently and which they can take with them into any dance situation. It's a great class for a little person who loves to dance through life and it's a great foundation for getting ready to choose a particular style as they start school whether it be ballet, street dance, tap or modern.

Tiny Tots Tap We generally recommend Tiny Tots Tap as being suitable from age 5, but sometimes a younger child will be suitable. This class is designed for our youngest tap dancers, giving them chance to explore footwork, rhythm and movement in a really fun way, whilst building them up to be ready to start the tap syllabus grades.

Pre-Primary in Dance This class leads on directly from Next Steps and is a pre-ballet class in nature. Children spend about 12 months at this level, and may participate in a Class Award in front of an external examiner before moving up to Primary.

Streetdance - Beginners This very first class is recommended for children aged 4-6 who have not danced before, or who have not done streetdance. Using basic dance vocabulary children will be introduced to several streetdance styles during the year, and when they are ready, may participate in Medal Tests.
