Mini, Pre-Primary & Primary Programmes
These programmes are designed to introduce young children to the joys of movement by exploring and expanding their movement range. Building coordination, strength, flexibility, and balance in combination with musical exercises are some of the primary objectives of the class. These classes involve dance games and props to keep the attention of young students, supplying them with the necessary tools to love dance for a lifetime.
Your child will have the opportunity to dance in our exciting Annual Show, In the Spotlight which is not just a recital. It is a spectacular show that you will be proud to bring all your friends and relatives to see!
The Importance of Beginning Correctly
Fostering a love of dance from an early age, we are thrilled to offer various unique and fun classes that have been designed for both girls and boys from 3 to 6 years of all abilities. We also offer a unique Parent and Tot programme, where children as young as 18 months can be introduced the the amazing world of dance.
Developing a young dancer's technical foundation is so important. Our mission at Goddards Studio is to make sure students are taught properly from the beginning, to ensure they have the correct skills as they move forward in their dance journeys.
All of our primary classes are limited in size, making sure that all dancers get the attention they deserve and need. As well as having fun, keeping fit, developing their co-ordination, flexibility and balance, they’ll gain confidence and learn how to express themselves through music and movement.
