Twirling Toddlers is a fun dance and movement programme for boys and girls from 10 months old and upwards.
We offer movement and sensory classes for babies, ballet, tap and street dance based classes for toddlers and upwards. Then once your dancer starts school we move on to follow the RAD ballet and IDTA tap/modern syllabus for older ones.
All of our classes are taught in a fun environment and through the use of dance, songs, movements, props and sensory toys we can help your little one to develop in most areas of child development.
Through the use of dance, songs, movement, props and sensory equipment we can help your little one to develop in most areas of child development:
- physical development
- social skills
- body awareness
and most of all have FUN! Not to mention the adults also having lots of fun, whether that be Mummy, Daddy, Nanny, Granddad or any adult who wishes to accompany your child.
As well as all the above, your little one is also starting to learn the basics of the different dance style. Our classes are based around the principles of ballet, tap and street dancer and this is done in a safe environment.
Oopsy Daisy Waddlers 10 months - 2 years Old
A fun and busy 30 minute class with carer working alongside little ones to help them during the class. This class is a general dance & movement session incorporating dance, songs and fun props we help to develop little ones’ motor skills and co-ordination, in a relaxed and fun environment. We now focus on encouraging little ones to get them walking, turning, clapping, stamping, bending knees, jumping and finding body parts and having along the way.
Twinkle Toes Ballet 2-3 year olds
A 30 minute ballet based class with carer still working alongside little ones. We now continue the dance journey at a slightly more advanced stage and begin to bring the basics of ballet into the classes, learning first and second position, running on tip toes, pointing our toes, hoping, jumping and much more. We also enjoy going on mini-adventures and getting little ones to start to use their imaginations, for example we may visit the fairy garden or the land of the giants.
Tapping Tots 2 and Upwards
All toddlers love to make noise and what better way than putting on a pair of tap shoes and stomping around the room. Learning the basics of tap to fun songs your little one will soon be tapping away, again with carer still helping and working alongside your little ones when they are need that extra help. All tap classes are 30 minutes and most centres will provide tap shoes that can be used for trial sessions.
Bouncing Ballerinas 3- 5 year olds
A 30 minute ballet class where we now begin to work on more ballet technique during the classes and start to use the French terminology. Our dancers will still be taught ballet in a fun way, we may take a trip to the Tooth Fairy or to the land of the butterflies. Carer will no longer be dancing along side their little one and once our dancers reach 4 years + classes we encourage parents to wait in the side rooms to help little ones to be more independent.
Funky Feet 2 and upwards
A 30 minute action packed dance class – based on street dance and pop dance. Your dancer will be soon be bopping away to learn the basics of dance movement, using props and modern day tunes to let your little ones wiggle and giggle.
RAD ballet & IDTA tap 4+
Once our dancers start in reception we then start to teach the RAD ballet syllabus and IDTA tap/modern syllabus and students have the option to take exams (this is optional). Our ethos is still to keep classes fun but now following the requirements of the exam boards and we also promote independent learning, so we ask all parents to now remain in the side room during classes.
