Our Acrobatic Dance classes are great for children aged 2.5 and upwards. We have a special Preschool programme for children aged 2.5 – 4 years old. Children start learning acro positions, locomotive skills, balance skills, cooperation and social skills, whilst having lots of fun! We use lots of props to help build children’s confidence whilst learning, and our picture cards are a great way to keep learning enjoyable.
Our main Acrobatic Dance programme is suitable for children aged 4 and upwards and these classes focus on our level cards, learning progressions of Cartwheels, Handstands, Bridges, Flexibility, Strength etc and moving up each level when all skills can be demonstrated correctly. All classes are taught by qualified Acrobatic teachers alongside all the Acro/gym mats for safety.
Pre School Classes
Our Pre-school Ballet classes start from 2 and a half years. Our loveable teddy, Melody Bear is the centre our classes, the focal point of the early years curriculum, and all her activities, stories, ideas and dreams can be told through dance and movement. The carefully planned learning experience of each child ensures a successful transition from one stage to the next. Our Ballet classes use lots of props and the children have continuous fun and can’t wait until next time to see Melody Bear!
We also run Pre-School Acro classes for children 2 and a half to 4 years.
Tap & Modern
Our lyrical dance classes are perfect for children who want to dance freely, with more movement and fluidity than our Ballet classes. We focus on technique and how our body moves from one movement to another using different levels, floor and contact work. Expression and performance come from within and we work really hard to express this through softer movements.
Claire is great with the kids - highly highly recommend Claire Andrews if you're looking for your little one to get in to dancing / drama performance."
Her classes are full with props to assist the children coordinating their movements and learn basic steps. She also motivates them to use their imagination, making up stories in order to help them to express themselves through dance. They have always had a session packed full with fun."
