Parent & Toddler

“Dance to your Own Tune” is a fun and creative movement class for toddlers aged 2 and above and their parent, grandparent or carer. Classes are run by our Principal, Melissa Glover (ARAD Solo Seal, FISTD), a very experienced dance teacher with a background in early years development.

These are lively but structured classes that develop children's physical skills and encourage creativity, expression, confidence and musicality. And, behind all the fun, they'll actually be prepared for a transition to ballet and other dance genres at higher levels, should you want to move on to our beginner’s classes on a Saturday morning.

“My daughter has grown in confidence whilst learning many new movements, songs and social skills.  This is all-in the happiest and most full-of-smiles environment. It is definitely a highlight of our week spending this pure quality time together!"

Helen (parent)

Classes teach children:

  • to move with control, coordination and confidence 
  • an awareness of their body and how it moves through space 
  • a sensitivity to music, and 
  • expression of emotions through movement.

The classes are designed to improve the children’s confidence and co-ordination and develop their social skills. Using an array of props and lively music, the classes guarantee to capture the children’s and adult’s imagination.
