The Fairy Feet Dance Club classes are separated into four different age groups so that the key areas of development for each group can be focused on:
Toddler Tinkerbell Classes
This 30 minute class is designed for Toddlers aged 18 months – 3 years old.
Adult participation is required with the toddler’s ‘Special Grown-Up’ to assist them during class (but don’t worry – no dance experience is needed!). Children at this age learn through mimicking adult behaviour and benefit from repetitive, predictable activities. This is a beautiful way to spend some quality one-on-one time with your child (or grandchild!) and watch them grow and flourish as the world of dance teaches them self awareness, self confidence and helps them reach important developmental milestones.
If your child is in the younger age bracket of class – don’t be concerned if they are not able to do all of the class activities. The purpose of joining them into class from a young age (aside from allowing them to explore their love of dance) is to get them comfortable being in a class environment and listening and responding to simple directions from a teacher.
Preschool Pixie Classes (Little Pixies: 3-4 year olds and Big Pixies: 4-5 year olds)
These 45 minute classes are designed for preschool/kindergarten children aged 3-5 years old.
This is such an integral age of a child’s development and the benefits of dance for young children has been widely researched and documented.
Each week we will explore a new “theme” with a range of dance activities enhanced by the use of props, instruments and music. Some of the favourite themes we visit are: “In the Fairy Garden”, “Princesses”, “Under the Sea” and “Magic Spells”.
Parents/Guardians are warmly welcome to watch the class, but as a courtesy to the students, teacher and the class environment we ask that all parents (and any younger siblings) remain QUIETLY SEATED in the studio.
School Sugar Plum Classes for 5 – 8 year olds (Little School Sugar Plums: Prep and Big School Sugar Plums: Grade 1 -2)
An exciting continuation for those moving up from the preschool classes or a wonderful introduction to the world of dance for new students. These 55 minute classes further explore the dance elements of poise, rhythm and movement with a heavier focus on learning choreographed dance routines (which will be performed at an “Open Day Class” at the end of Term 2 – and then one routine in the End Of Year Concert ).
NB: For the benefit of the students concentration and learning – parents are not permitted in the class room during lesson time. You are welcome to wait in the venue foyer for the duration of class time, but if you choose to leave please ensure that you return to the venue PRIOR to the completion of class to collect your child.
