TODDLER DANCE CLASSES REIGATE & REDHILL

Reigate Dance Centre provides babies and toddlers to discover dance through music and movement and we really ensure children enjoy themselves.

 

Whether you want the freedom of dancing freestyle with simple routines to pop a musical theatre music, or through the magical world of ballet, introducing mime and early basic steps, all classes provide children with improved co-ordination, balance and physical / mental ability. All classes are taught by the RSB team of teachers (winners of the UK 'Dance School of the Year 2018' awards. 

 

Listening and reacting to music at this young age is a brilliant source of early child development - and it's also FUN! 

We have the following classes available for children from 18 months to 4 years. We also have the depth of established classes for when they get older in all styles of dance.

 

Ages 18 months - 3 yrs

We have 4 styles of classes for this age group:

DANCE BABES (18 months to 3 yrs)

Dance Babes offer fun, use of imagination and plenty of co-ordinated movement to music, whilst learning to co-ordinate the body to rhythm and music. Using the basics of ballet with creative movement for children to learn to move to music, the classes are based around ballet but features many creative movements  / action songs / role play which helps children to develop their coordination when they get older, as well as social and motor skills and learning to interpret music through the body. Parents accompany the children in these classes, which means you can take the routines home. 

Classes are on Fridays at 10.00am at the Reigate Community Centre.
