Movement Classes for toddlers and children up to 3 years, Baby Ballet Classes
The Academy of Dance Arts is offering an exciting dance and movement programme for toddlers aged 1 – 3 years. These classes have been designed specifically for very young children who love to dance to their favourite songs but are too young to join formal dance classes. These classes are open to both boys and girls.
Movement classes for younger children utilise music and movement structured in a fun routine that helps to improve your toddler’s muscle strengthening, balance and coordination. As children grow up, classes guide children in a playful way to dance, move, jump and run with harmony and grace. All activities are created to improve children’s large motor skills, coordination and balance as they discover and explore the world.
Each session includes a fun warm-up, a musical story adventure full of action and a winding down period. These sessions will help your children:
– explore their creativity
– build their self esteem from a very young age
– have fun
Parents join the classes with their children. Parents are given the opportunity to interact physically with their children, while meeting other parents.
Baby Ballet for 2 to 3 year olds
In this class, children will still join with one of the parents but will be introduced to the first ballet steps. The class will focus more on the ballet dance than on the games which characterise the Movement classes. Children will also join the class in their ballet uniform already. The class is suitable for 2 to 3 years olds.
