Dance for Children

Creative Dance and Contemporary Dance Classes for Children

Creative Dance Age 6-8

See your child smile, as they balance, turn, move without stopping, roll and jump up, exploring the elements of dance. Happy eyes, dancing and inventing moves, inspired by our own world.

Sometimes we start with images, sometimes with props like feathers, welly boots, fabric, leaves – always coupled with movement questions: How does a propeller seed drift to the ground? Can you make this floating light, spiralling, movement with your foot, shoulder, or even nose?

We dance to stories, music, rhythms, sounds and silence. We explore basic modern dance movements in very short combinations, and enjoy the possibilities that arise as we change these and create our own dances in small teams.

We become aware of time, rhythm, tempo, space, direction, size, level.

All the while, we build awareness and control of movement, movement skills, rhythm, musicality, communication, respect and tolerance, courage to create, and self-expression in dance.

&

Creative / Contemporary Dance  Age 8+

See your son or daughter beaming with pride, as they progress from exploring elements of dance in all their variety to mastering fundamentals of modern and contemporary dance.

Picture them learning short dynamic combinations, improvising to creative tasks, and finding the courage to include their own dance ideas and develop these into dances with their peers in group tasks.

We learn to share, observe & describe dance.  We melt improvisation, technical exercises and dynamic combinations with our own dance ideas into a dance story and share these in an open class at the end.

In this class we build awareness and control of movement, movement skills, rhythm, musicality, communication, respect and tolerance, the courage to create, and express ourselves in dance.
