If you are looking for a dance class for your young dancer, a class that is more than just ‘pretend fairy ballet’ then this class is for you! Designed so 2 & 3 year old dancers can begin to experience the wonderful sense of dance and movement, based around simple classical ballet training. At times, appropriate equipment is used. Just as you want your young child to learn their alphabet and numbers correctly, we teach dance correctly – there is no difference. Earlier the better! We do not want your young dancer to run around in class, they can do this at home, so the class is structured slightly and taught each week for repetitive muscle memory. Alot of encouragement is given. Parents are welcome to assist their young dancer in class, if the dancer is having trouble settling in. Give Jan a call for more information.

If the young dancers participate in a JPSD end of year performance, a senior dancer will dance with the group on stage, to stimulate movement. See pictures below. Your child will dance on stage, instead of standing still in a costume, not knowing what to do and laughed at by the audience as seen as ‘cute’. They will be cute but they will dance!

The younger dancers will also experience imagination and awareness with the emphasis on building confidence and enjoyment.
