DANCETOTS: is a 45 minute, fun filled movement/dance activity session for babies, toddles and their primary carer. DANCETOTS offers endless opportunities for children to fine tune their physical and cognitive capabilities. Through this rich, fun learning experience very young children and babies benefit by improving their fine and gross motor skills, balance and co-ordination along side language acquisition, memory recall, basic numeracy skills, colour recognition and improved listening proficiency; offering children that all important head start before commencing school. As significant as they are, it’s not just about the physical and educational benefits – DANCETOTS place equal importance on developing a child’s personal, social and emotional development whist encouraging creativity through music, movement, social interaction and most importantly of all, whilst having oodles of fun learning the FUNdamentals of dance!

We use an array of props to stimulate young inquisitives minds from musical instruments, colourful floaty scarves and wands to bubbles, bean bags, hoops and soft toys, whilst moving to music from Mozart to Madonna, action songs and rhymes to hot salsa and Latin American rhythms.

Our dance classes have been established for over 20 years in this area and are run by fully qualified dance teachers who are CRB checked; many also having a back ground in education, working in local schools, with an in-depth knowledge of children & child development.

What makes DANCETOTS stand out from the rest? Apart from our enthusiasm for dance and the sheer joy of seeing our young children grow in confidence and independence, what makes us unique is the fact that we can offer a carefully crafted development from early first steps in dance through to a recognized qualification in dance accredited with an international acclaimed dance organization.

DANCETOTS is suitable for both boys and girls. Carers are encouraged to participate in the class so please wear comfortable shoes and clothing. Babies are welcome from six weeks old and participating mothers must have had their six weeks post natal check-up and confirmed with their doctor that it is safe to resume exercise. Go on have fun with your baby or toddler, tone-up, loose weight and feel great!
