If your 3-5 year old loves to move and dance, then our Creative Dance classes are just the thing!
In each class, children explore dance and creative movement, musicality and mime. The focus is on fun and enjoyment, with storytelling and props such as scarves, ribbons, hoops and bean bags a part of each and every lesson.
Children are inherently creative and possess the most wonderful imaginations. The ‘Creative’ in Creative Dance is important to us and we focus on developing and nurturing creativity and self-expression. Creative Dance classes provide opportunities for children to display their creative side and express themselves through movement and dance.
Creative Dance classes also teach foundational dance skills which enhance coordination, strength and balance, assisting with general physical development as well as providing a wonderful platform for future dance and physical activities. Fine-motor and gross-motor skills are practiced, providing an all-round form of development.
Another important outcome for our Creative Dance students is the feeling of belonging and participating confidently in the class. Children are gently encouraged to work with their peers as part of a group, follow teacher directions and learn and practice skills such as active listening, taking turns and sharing. Each week children grow in confidence as they become more familiar with the Creative Dance routine and as they learn and master new skills.
Each term there are set classes which are open for parent viewing. You will be notified of these exciting classes in advance so that you can add them to your calendar. Our Creative Dance students are also invited to perform in our end of year concert, an experience which will be cherished both by the dancer and those watching them shine on the stage!
Enrol your child today for Creative Dance classes and let them experience the joy of dance!
