Short Courses for Fun
We are really proud to have something to cater not just for all ages, backgrounds and experience levels, but for those families who might seek something purely on a recreational level as appose to a structured training program.
Wings & Wands - Early Years
Wings & Wands is an imaginative dance class for our youngest learners. At this stage, classes are about setting up the fundamental skills such as balance and coordination, rhythm and timing, body control, and spatial awareness. We help to instil the foundation dance steps which include, skipping, galloping, running and walking on toes, jumping, hopping, managing tempo changes, body shapes, use of directions and understanding the left and right side of the body. All of the above are taught through a range of fun and engaging activities which follow a class theme that we change every few weeks. Lessons are centred around having fun and building confidence, children always learn best when having fun. Everyone is encouraged to try everything; and will always find plenty of praise, even if something hasn’t quite yet been mastered. The early years foundation stage (EYFS) sets government standards for the learning, development and care of our children in England from birth to 5 years old. As an organisation for dance and theatre we will primarily help with your child’s physical and expressive development however, we are also able to nurture many of the other areas of EYFS learning too. Communication & language, personal, social & emotional development, understanding the world and even literacy & mathematics are all incorporated into our fun, play based activities.
