Each session includes a guided class in either Gymnastics or Dance, taught by one of our highly experienced and qualified instructors.  Parents are encouraged to sit back, grab a cuppa and watch their little ones enjoy the fun and freedom of learning new moves and skills all whilst making new friends!

 

 

Dance, move, make music!

Our popular Dance Class offers children the opportunity to explore music and movement in a fun social environment.  This class provides a solid foundation and serves as a great starting point for all dance forms.  It is an intensive form of exercise working every part of the body from the finger tips to the toes, helping to develop long, lean and strong muscles whilst cultivating coordination, balance, strength and flexibility. 

Combinations of movements involving jumping and leaping increase heart rate, which improves endurance, stamina and overall cardiovascular health.

Mental and emotional benefits include increased confidence, determination, self discipline, and well being. 

Through the process of memorising movements in sequences, concentration, memory and cognitive ability are developed, developing your child’s ability to learn faster, all vital skills that can be used in and out of the dance studio.
