PKS Dance Elite Ltd. offers several levels of Mini Movers programming. Each has been specifically designed to achieve goals, reach milestones, and fundamentally prepare your child for a lifetime of healthy living and a love for dance. We take pride in the fact that all our Pre-dance programmes are designed by ECE, qualified dance teachers. We feel it so important that our teachers understand the developmental process of this age group – not just dance steps.
Featuring carefully chosen songs and activities from today’s leading children’s musicians and educators in varying styles, from folk to rock. The Mini Movers programs lead children on a journey through musical and self-awareness in a non-threatening and safe environment. Designed for children walking to 5 years old, these classes introduce movement, rhythm, co-ordination and balance. Children start to learn the fundamentals of dance within a fun and upbeat atmosphere. If you are looking for a well rounded and entertaining movement experience using plenty of toys and instruments, you will find it here.
Our Mini Movers classes are divided into 4 eight-week sessions, which run from the end of September to the end of May. Each session focuses on different aspects of movement and dance, paired with songs specifically chosen to enhance learning in a fun and creative way.
