We run a range of classes for children at our Burnt Mills studio, a little information can be seen about each of the sessions below:
Teeny and Tiny Trixies
These are 40-minute classes especially designed for our youngest dancers. They are parent-participation and involve lots of familiar songs, engaging routines and a variety of dance styles including ballet, tap and jazz. We also use props and upon signing up to attend the first lesson, each student receives a prop bag to keep and bring along each week to minimise the sharing of resources.
Teeny Trixies: 14 months – 2.5 years
Tiny Trixies: 2.5 – 3.5 years
As children become older, they attend class independently and we offer a range of classes suitable for different ages. You can see when these classes take place by visiting our timetables page. Please do contact us to book a trial at any of our classes. The classes and their estimated ages are listed below as a guide but we do also consider whether a student has had previous dance experience before advising the best group available.
Red Group- 3.5 – 5 years
Yellow Group- 3.5 – 5 years
Pink Group- 5 – 6 years
Orange Group- 6 – 7 years
Lilac Group- 7 – 8 years
Violet Group- 8 – 9 years
Green Group – 9 – 10 years
Jade Group- 9 – 11 years
Turquoise Group- 11 – 13 years
Hip Hop and Lyrical
We also run combined hip hop and lyrical classes for children. It is helpful for children to be attending other classes with us before taking on these new dance styles.
Hip hop is an energetic style of dance originating in the USA. Using elements of street and break dancing, students are encouraged to express their own individual personality.
Lyrical is a more expressive form of dance with fluid movements, inspired by elements of ballet and jazz.
Hip Hop and Lyrical 1 – Fridays: 7 – 10 years
Hip Hop and Lyrical 2- Thursdays: 11 – 14 years
