Year 1 Dance Class

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!

In January and February, our theme is the Snow Queen! With our older dancers will use the more traditional version where the Snow Queen learns that love is the strongest magic of all. The hope is that this theme will coincide with some snow fall as has happened in previous years (Fingers Crossed!) and also link to Valentine’s Day! 

In March and April, our theme is everyone’s favourite flying nanny, Mary Poppins! For our older children, we’ll be using the newer film version story ‘Mary Poppins Returns’. We’ll be dancing to fabulous songs like ‘Trip a Little Light Fantastic’, ‘A Cover is not the Book’ and ‘The Royal Doulton Music Hall’. At the end of this term, we’ll have our Annual Show for parents at St. Margaret’s Hall. 

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.
