Welcome to Bop About Dance!

Hello 🙂 If you are looking for fun and relaxed Dance classes; we’d love to welcome you to one of our sessions. All our details for Toddler, Preschool, and Preschool Improvers classes for term time are available; please click on the links for the information most relevant to you. If you are looking for classes for children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 or in Years 3 and 4; we have sessions for them too!

In September and October, our theme is Sleeping Beauty where we’ll be dancing like fairies, princes and princesses, pretending we’ve come under a sleeping spell and imagining an enchanted forest has grown around us. With waves of our wands and whirls with our wings we’ll dance the story together. Older students get to follow the balletic version of the story and learn some ballet mime to express the different emotions as they dance as the wicked fairy ‘Carabosse’ and the contrasting helpful ‘Lilac Fairy’. 

In November and December, our theme will be the story of the Nutcracker with creative dances based on toys coming to life, dancing like the snowflakes on the way to journey to Sweetieland. There will also be the option to come to watch a relaxed live stream of the Nutcracker at the Wiltshire Music Centre with more details to follow and our older school aged children will be performing for the residents at a local Care Home.

Our Adult Ballet Dance class is for anyone who would like to try this graceful dance style for gentle exercise and our Adult Tap Dance class is excellent for a noisy boogie!

For more information or to book a trial session, please email bopaboutdance@gmail.com.

Sample Class:

We’ll be continuing to use safety precautions to help prevent the spread of Covid-19:

  • Mask wearing in communal areas and hand sanitising on entry
  • Lower class numbers to allow for more space around each participant
  • Continued attention to airflow and ventilations systems
  • Own props bag so that children have their own ribbons, scarves etc to prevent sharing
  • Social distancing for Adults watching Toddler and Preschool Classes and Adults dancing in Ballet and Tap classes
  • Teachers fully vaccinated and testing regularly

For those looking for Dance Workshops for Children’s Birthday Parties, Hen Parties or planning their Wedding First Dance; happy to help! Please click on the links for further information or email bopaboutdance@gmail.com.
