Dance Classes for Nursery Children

Nurseries

Dance can be magical if it's taught in the right way.

Jitterbugs provides dance classes to children aged between 12 months and 4 years. We are experts in our field and love teaching children to 'Learn, Grow, Dance'!

Dance

Learn valuable social skills, such as sharing, taking turns, working with others, making new friends and listening to instructions.   Grow in ability and confidence, and watch as their friendships grow, and their smiles!   Dance because it’s the most natural and fun thing to do when you’re a toddler!

 

Young children respond to music even before they can walk or talk, our classes filled with music, singing, dancing, props and rhythms will excite and entice even the youngest of imaginations.

Our main aim during the classes is to build confidence in the children. The sessions are designed using the EYFS framework, using the following areas of learning and development to help plan the classes:

  • Physical Development
    • We work on the children’s co-ordination skills, using balance and control exercises, teaching them how to isolate different parts of their bodies and using a wide range of movements including levels and rhythms.
  • Personal, social and emotional development
    • Dancing involves a huge amount of respect, for yourself and for others. In our classes the children learn to dance in a group and also develop enough confidence to have a go on their own, this sometimes takes time, as each child is different, but the encouragement remains the same from child to child.
  • Expressive arts and design
    • We provide a wide range of props for the children to explore and dance with during the classes, including pom poms, ribbons, scarves, percussion instruments and many more, this enables them to be expressive with their movement and imagination.

Jitterbugs can provide classes in your early years nursery or preschool setting termly, half termly or weekly. Or we can provide one off sessions to suit you and your timetable. Our sessions are carefully planned for the following age groups; 12mths-2yrs and 2-4 yrs.

"The children at our nursery have been enjoying the Jitterbugs experience since last summer. The children look forward to seeing Jenny and taking part in her music and movement sessions. They get throughly involved and have tremendous fun. The sessions are particularly helpful for children who have English as an additional language and children who have special needs. We would highly recommend the Jitterbugs experience to other settings."
