“A wonderful teacher who always has bags of energy and captures the children’s attention from the beginning to the end of every class/workshop.”
Dance, movement and music are a tremendous way for children to develop creativity and express themselves. The dance classes offered for all age groups are adapted to suit the level of early years children and are taught through story-telling and imagery to capture their imaginations and inspire them to learn.
Creative Music and Movement
Creative Music and Movement is perfect for children from 2 years upwards and especially suited to educational settings such as nurseries. The class is taught using story-telling and imagery. Music is specifically chosen to represent different parts of the tale whilst the movements bring the story to life. The children are encouraged to use their imaginations in order to reflect the mood and dynamics of the song, developing their musical knowledge at a young age . Clare focuses on encouraging children to explore their own creativity at this stage before they become influenced by adults’ own constructs of creativity. Her own musical knowledge and ability to read music make her well adept to teach rhythm and musicality in an enjoyable and age-appropriate manner. Percussion instruments and other small props make the class all the more popular with the children and classes have proved a great success with students and teachers alike!
