Dance and Movement Class

A creatively designed class for children and their carers promoting growth, activity and shared experience. This class is run by Kate Barber on a Saturday from 8.30 am to 9.00 am. This class does not participate in our End of Year Performance. 

This class will stimulate and activate the developmental needs of children from 2 to 3 years of age. The program emphasises the importance of participation with a caring adult, creating a platform for shared experiences and meaningful connections. In a secure and nurturing environment, young dancers not only learn to move and strengthen their bodies but also expand their vocabularies, all while having fun with a loving grown-up.


Class Objectives

  • Introducing young minds and bodies to the wonder of dance in a stress free, creative environment 

  • Activities include dancing, singing, music appreciation, story telling, skill development, creative dance exploration, parachute rides and free dancing

  • To stimulate cognitive and physical development, sociability and bonding

Class Outline

  • Our class starts with a warm up designed to develop non-locomotor skills and activate the mind and body

  • The weekly and term themes determine the dramatic elements of the class, which lead the children on a challenging and joyous adventure, at the same time developing their ballet technique, music appreciation, creative dance skills and gross motor development

  • A familiar cool down exercise brings the class to a close. This often includes dress-ups, free dancing or narrative inspired dance followed by a relaxation activity
