Our DanceFusion classes are split into age groups – Snowflake, Butterfly, Sunshine, Moonbeam, Rainbow, Shooting Stars, Little Stars and Shining Stars. For the younger classes, we start with a few simple styles (Cha Cha/Street) and widen their range of dances as they grow. Our DanceFusion classes cover everything from Ballroom & Latin to Freestyle & Street, and are a great way to introduce your child to different dance skills, build confidence and social skills, as well as being a fun way to exercise.
Our Snowflake classes start at age 3, with groups continuing right through to teen. Children have the opportunity to take medals with the IDTA 6 monthly, as well as performing for parents and relatives at presentation days, Galas and Fundays.
BalletRemix dance classes are for children ages 3 – 6, and see ballet taught alongside contemporary which give the classes an modern feel that our young children thrive on. These classes introduce children to Ballet & Contemporary Dance using the natural actions of the body such as running, walking, jumping and hopping, and form a structured syllabus to aid your childs physical development, coordination, spatial awareness, creativity and self-expression. Children work individually, with a partner and in groups, and have the opportunity to collect Melody Bear medals, rosettes and badges in our award scheme.
Mini Dancers classes are the perfect introduction to dance and movement for little girls and boys age 18 months upwards. The joys of dancing and singing are shared by teacher, parent and toddler as together they join us each week for a fun filled toddler class.
For children over 11, we have an excellent range of classes in Ballroom, Latin, Freestyle and Street which works towards 6 monthly exams with the IDTA. Whilst still lots of fun, these classes work to the ability of the child, making these classes great for really excelling at dance. If your child is interested in joining, contact us on 0114 269 5703 so we can recommend the right class.
