Young children love to move. It forms a vital part of their well being and contentment. Not only does movement help children to feel good about themselves, but it helps them to learn. Through dance children develop their bodies, minds and gain confidence and the ability to express.
The importance of movement in the development of children has been well researched and documented. During these early years children are involved in developing fundamental movement skills that are necessary for future skill learning. Early exposure to appropriate dance movement activities in an instructional environment can help children to acquire skills and attitudes that are necessary for the future participation in physical activity. Active children will develop into active and healthy adults, enjoying the physical and social benefits that dance can bring.
Our Pre-School Dance Curriculum aims to capture and nurture young children's instinctive joy of movement and freedom of expression. Through participation, children will learn to move in a child friendly environment that encourages exploration, independence and social interactions. The Curriculum is designed to enable children to participate in dance activities that are developmentally appropriate, helping to facilitate the learning of more advanced dance skills at a later age.
