MAGIC MOVEMENT

Magic Movement is a program created and taught by The Power of Dance which teaches movement, song, dance, play, storytelling and developmental skills to very young children (aged 1 – 3 years) in an environment supported by a special adult in their life. This may be mum, dad, grandpa, aunty, friend (or any other adult), whom participates in the class along with the child. This class is a fun and nurturing environment designed to help children learn and grow and strengthen both their independence and their relationship with their adult. Dance and movement will be a main component of this class and participants are always encouraged to explore each activity and find a way to participate that suits the child’s mood and developmental level. Magic Movement students do not participate in performances and are not required to purchase any uniforms or dancing shoes. A separate enrolment form will need to be filled out for this class.

BALLROOM

Ballroom is a beginner adult ballroom dance class incorporating both traditional ballroom styles and some more informal dance styles.  Classes will include a mix of technique used in dances such as the Foxtrot, Cha Cha and Waltz, as well as some more relaxed, ‘fun’ dances such as the Progressive Jive.  As ballroom requires ‘couples’ to dance, students must be prepared to dance in both male and female roles.  Several different styles will be explored throughout the year. No experience or partner necessary.
