THIS IS US JUNIOR DANCE COMPANY

TUESDAY (TERM-TIME ONLY) | 4:00PM - 4:45PM | BISHOPS DOWN PRIMARY SCHOOL | AGES 4+

 

Our Junior classes are all about the adventure! These classes are hugely sensory based with activities and tasks that help our dancers build on fundamental communicative and physical skills. Every class will see us explore something new and discover exciting things. From wildlife to bubbles and superheroes to secret agents - every class brings a new story. We hide secret notes and learn to work as a team to complete our tasks. This class creates the foundations behind our IRIS syllabus (8+). We truly believe in embracing creativity and emotion, allowing this to be the driving force behind our work. 

When teaching the company, we do not try not to teach the steps, but develop them together with the children and staff through the use of stories and imagery. Open language is extremely important and we tend to use describing words such as spiral, shift or slither. Words that everyone can interpret in their own way! This is a way of giving our dancers a sense of ownership and originality.

PARENT/CARER TESTIMONIAL

"My son absolutely loves this group. He gets so excited about going to the dance sessions. He has grown in so much confidence and is helping building up his core strength and helping with his social skills and listening skills and learning to take turns. It's so hard to find groups that are inclusive around Tunbridge Wells but so glad we have found it. All the staff are so friendly and my son loves seeing them. He loves taking part in the sessions."
