Creative movement and imaginative play are the foundations of this fun and energetic early introduction to dance for toddlers. Parents participate in the class activities with their children using different props and imagery, which helps little ones build their confidence in sharing a space with others, through joyful movement.
The aim of the class is to introduce basic motor skills, encourage musical response to specialist songs, hone listening skills and enhance focus. The class is taught in a relaxed and friendly manner and there is no pressure for the little ones to participate in all the activities continuously. The class is suitable for boys and girls from 18 months up to 3 years old, and is free for Dive In Members.
