Flutter and Twirl - For children who are 4-5yo.
Flutter & Twirl
Does your child twirl around the living room? Skip down the footpath? Leap across puddles?
If “yes” is the answer then look no further than Flutter and Twirl. It’s a light, happy class that takes children further into the world of creative dance and the beginnings of ballet. Our teachers use Imagination and play-based learning approaches to encourage exploration, creativity and confidence in your child’s ability to move expressively.
Children are encouraged to find creative expression in response to a wide range of music.
SING DANCE ACT - For 3-4 and 4-5year olds.*
Sing, Dance, Act English as a Second Language (ESL) 3 – 4 year olds
NEW – Sing, Dance, Act class for preschoolers who have a limited understanding of the English language. This is a transition class to prepare ESL students for our English speaking 4 – 5 yo Sing, Dance, Act classes, once they have started 4 year old kindergarten. We will be exploring movement, music, song and dance with a focus on language progression and development.
Sing, Dance, Act sessions explore the whole creative experience of singing, dancing and acting. Activities explore movement, music and dance with the help of stories, props and costumes to encourage the development of speaking and singing voices.
Sing, Dance, Act is a stepping stone in developing musical awareness,
story-telling skills and an enthusiasm for the arts. These classes help to create positive, creative, and imaginative individuals as children build confidence and co-operation.
In Term 1, the 3 – 4 year old classes will be 45mins and run as a settling in class with a view to parents being able to leave their child to form independent connections with the teacher & students. From Term 2 these classes will move to 1 hour as guided by our qualified teacher. Children will then attend class without parents. After Term 2 begins a child unable to seperate from parents may need to wait until their emotional maturity develops. Some children take longer than others to reach this point in their development. New enrolments are not taken in Term 2 to enable the group to settle without parents.
Separate classes for 3 – 4 & 4 – 5 year-olds (see age calculation below)
*‘Sing Dance Act’ Age Calculation
Children are placed in class based on their age as at 31st March. For example if your child is 3-years-old at 31st March then they would be in a 3- 4y/o group. Children who have turned 4 before 31st March join the 4 – 5y/o class.
(Children do not change classes after their birthday.)
