Reception Dance Classes

In our fun and relaxed Dance classes for children, we aim to build confidence and develop movement skills. Creativity is encouraged and we love to try the children’s dance ideas! We include Ballet, Contemporary and Jazz in our curriculum and use lots of different music styles and themes to allow the children’s imagination to flourish. We are maintaining social distancing and working to keeping everybody as covid-safe as possible. We can’t wait to see you!

On a child’s first lesson to the term’s theme, they will be given all the props that they need for the term and ask please that they are brought to every class. Children can wear whatever they would like to and the only requirement is that it is clean on that day and there is something on the feet, such as ballet shoes, house slippers, gripped socks etc. Hair must be tied back from the face with a hair band/ hair clips etc away from the mouth.

In April and May, our theme will be the adventures of Moana and her cheeky side kick, Maui. We’ll be trying dances inspired by the Polynesian Islands, sailing and swaying to the different parts of the story together.  

In June and July, our theme will be the adventures of Aladdin. We’ll be dancing with a Middle Eastern feel with inspired by flying carpets, magic lamps and a very funky genie!
