Dance Classes for Children
Dance Classes by age
18 mths – 30 mths
For children 18 months to 2 and a half, we offer Toddler Music and Movement classes with a parent or guardian. This is a fun class where children are encouraged to learn through music. The classes help children with their physical, cognitive and communication development.
For children of 2 and a half to school age we offer Pre-School classes which includes Ballet, Modern and Tap. Here the children are taught the basics of the three genres, whilst incorporating musical rhymes and games to encourage a musical awareness. It is proven that children who take part in dance classes at this age can develop better co-ordination, concentration and communication skills.
Once a child has reached school age they will progress though the grades commencing from Primary Class Test Ballet, Tap and Modern. Examinations can be taken from 5 years of age. All children are encouraged to work towards these examinations as it is a measure of months of their hard work and determination, although it is not compulsory. Pupils entered for examinations are at the discretion of the principals and their class teacher.
