Our pre-school classes are devised especially for boys and girls aged 2 – 4 years. The emphasis is on the development of co-ordination, discovery of mime and musicality, and group participation. The class is held in a fun environment which builds children’s confidence and self esteem for the future. Pre-School dance includes ballet, tap and free movement with the aim being to capture and nurture young children’s instinctive joy of movement and freedom of expression. A further 30minutes of gymnastic dance developing limbering and tricks and tumbles is optional but recommended.
