For the non-stop movers who can’t sit still, this class encourages your child to develop their own personal movement style in a vibrant and animated space. Creative tasks will encourage new ideas and approaches to dancing, whilst also investigating themes of musicality and rhythm. Start the day off with a big burst of energy and join us for this class.

Immerse your child in dance this Easter, experience two different styles of dance and two inspiring teachers in a fun a creative way.
