Budding Dancers Aged 5-8 Years
Here at Dance Unlimited we want every child to be confident, happy and discover the love and joys of dance. With small class sizes, interactive lessons with stickers, fairy wands and scarfs for our youngest dancers and engaging and challenging yet fun classes for our older dancers, our highly skilled friendly teachers ensure we get the best out of each and every child.
We can’t wait for to come along to a free taster session and join in the fun! Below is a selection of classes we offer for this age group, each taken with friend of a similar age and standard, so that each and every child gets the attention they deserve.
Children aged 5 and upwards start in to our Dance Unlimited ballet classes and then continue through the grades and up to Intermediate level. Our ballet classes are designed to introduce your child to the magical world of ballet. Each week they will twirl through a series of fun and engaging ballet exercises and dance routines that will put a bounce in their step and a smile on their face.
We structure our classes using hand picked exercises from the 3 major dance associations in the UK – IDTA, RAD and ISTD, ensuring your child has a well rounded ballet class and a positive experience from the beginning. Optional examinations are available annually with the IDTA as well as our ever popular dance show every 18 months.
Ballet offers a good technical foundation for all dance styles. It teaches good posture and poise, expression and imagination as well as working on strength, grace, musicality and self discipline.
We strongly encourage all our pupils to take ballet class.
Tap classes are great for developing good musical awareness, listening skills and is a great skill to add to a dancer’s knowledge. At Dance Unlimited as well as teaching the IDTA syllabus, we strongly believe in teaching different styles of tap including traditional, stomp style and american tap and regularly mix our classes up by using various music styles.
A fun class perfect for anyone looking for a recreational, energetic activity! Using the latest chart and pop music, children learn new and funky moves for both individual and group routines, for fun and for examinations and show work.
Our Theatre Jazz class combines acrobatics, Modern Jazz and Theatre Craft and can be taken from aged 5 years. These classes work on developing flexibility in a safe environment as well as developing strength, pick up speed and different styles of dance. These skills are used to perfect turns, leaps, tricks & tumbles as well as developing choreography and general dance skills such as splits and kicks.
A fun, progressive class where tricks, tumbles, flexibility and strength are developed. Our Acro class is perfect for kids who are always leaping and cartwheeling around! We follow the Acrobatic Arts syllabus and children progress through the levels, ticking off their new found skills as they go. The classes work on developing flexibility for kicks, spits and leaps as well a strength for acrobatic tricks such as cartwheels, walk overs and head stands.
