Pre School Classes

The early childhood years represent a time of rapid growth and development, when young children become aware of their bodies and what they can do with them.

Movement experts agree that young children should be involved in the fundamental movements such as walking, running, turning, jumping, skipping. Developing the joy and ease of these core movements is pertinent for future skills.

Participation in a pre-school dance curriculum, not only expands their movement vocabulary, developing control and skill of fundamental movements, but can also develop self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as social skills.

Footlight Performance Academy specialises and pride themselves on the developments of these very important any necessary skills, for the young mind and body, through music, dance and stories.
