Early Years Dance Programmes
Our fun, exciting, educational dance programme for children up to 5 years
These programmes have been designed to support the 7 areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation stage :
- Communication and language;
- Physical development;
- Personal, social and emotional development.
- Understanding the world;
- Expressive arts and design.
The sessions will look at developing children’s gross motor skills, co-ordination, general physical fitness, creativity, communication skills as well as team work skills.
The aim is for children to move creatively and using their own ideas in response to the stimuli and encouragement, using props such as scarves, ribbons, hoops, pompoms and more as inspiration and to help not only guide movements but also develop their co-ordination. They will also be introduced to basic dance steps and actions (from all areas of dance – ballet, jazz, freestyle, ballroom, theatre, contemporary, street, and more) that will create a basic knowledge of dance and performance technique, but also works with their understanding of children’s songs, nursery rhymes, and popular dances
