Tiny Dancers™

Our Programs
  • Our Tiny Dancers™ program encourages children to have fun through interpreting music whilst enabling many of the developmental attributes of growing children. Dance helps children to develop physically as it involves a greater range of movement, coordination, strength and endurance than most other physical activities. It uses the whole body and is an excellent form of exercise for total fitness.

    Dance helps children mature emotionally. It allows children the opportunity to express their emotions and raises self-awareness as well as awareness of others through creative movement.

    Dance is a powerful ally for developing many of the attributes of a growing child. Dance helps children mature physically, emotionally, socially, and cognitively. The physical benefits of dance are widely accepted, but the emotional, social and cognitive attributes have only recently begun to be appreciated

    Children also develop social awareness through dance as it fosters social interaction and cooperation allowing them to understand themselves in relation to others.

    Dance provides young children multiple perspectives. It is “a foundation of experience necessary for the future development of more advanced skills and a way to affirm an inner life and alternate realities” (Stinson, 1990). Through dance, children develop enhanced sensory awareness, cognition, and consciousness. It is this heightened state that creates the magic of movement that is dance.
