A fun, creative and educational dance programme for 0-5 years created by Laura Prince.
The programme has been specifically designed to support the seven areas of learning and development in the EYFS. Each session focuses on developing the child’s gross motor skills, co-ordination, creativity, and physical fitness as well as improving listening and communication skills.
Children are encouraged to move creatively and spontaneously using different cross-curricular themes and props such as ribbons, scarves and pom poms to aid as inspiration and help guide their movements. Children also learn basic dance steps and actions that accompany traditional nursery rhymes, popular children’s songs, cultural dances and Brain Dances.
The programme also includes themed dance sessions which are delivered throughout the year:
- Chinese New Year
- Celebrating the Olympics
- The Gruffalo
- Giraffes Can’t Dance
- The Jungle
- The Zoo
- Teddy Bears Picnic
- Mini Beast Adventure
- Beside the Seaside
- Princess & Pirates Christmas Adventure *
- Frozen Adventure *
Parties: Any above themed sessions can also be delivered at Christmas Parties, Graduation Days, Fayres and Events.
*Characters can also be provided for an additional cost (subject to availability).
