I just wanted to remind you as the pressure comes on for the dance competition...you provide such an positive environment for the girls, easy communication for parents and are flexible with times too.
Dance is FUN & Awesome for kids' FITNESS!
MT PLEASANT CLASSES ARE IN THE MT PLEASANT COMMUNITY CENTRE
If you have high energy kids, or children you want to get into fun exercise or help grow in confidence then you'll love these classes - Jazz dance and Hip Hop dance moves, takes a lot of energy and we keep them moving!
Our classes will help boost your children's fitness, help their confidence while giving them the skills to bring out the latest dance moves. The movement skills they gain are ones that they'll keep for life. We like to keep it fun but work on focusing the children to improve their dance and co-ordination! We start classes with a warm up designed to increase fitness levels and flexibility and strength, then move onto a step by step dance routine where we challenge them with new moves, rhythms and patterns. We build on their existing skills and get the kids developing new ones regardless of their existing abilities, one of the many great things about dance is that a wide range of skill levels can bring children together as one unit.
Over the course of a term you will see your child develop movement, rhythm and team work skills as well as seeing their confidence grow with their new found talents.
Both boys and girls are welcome to all of our child classes and will all work together on their moves - you'll be impressed by what they can achieve.
Course content varies, new moves are always being added and one term is never the same as the next so here's a rough guide to what you can expect in a set of classes - actual content will vary:
- Warm up
- Body isolations
- Popping & Locking
- Turns & spins
- A fun, team building warm down for younger classes
