There is a range of activities in the Wychwoods for pre-school children, from singing groups to sports clubs but, for dance, there is little available. Ascott Pre-school strives to fill this gap with Little Dancers – the Pre-school Dance Club. The Dance Club offers boys and girls between 3 and 5 years old the chance to explore a variety of dance styles, help to develop their coordination and enhance their sense of rhythm.
Each session is themed. Led by an instructor with a background in dance, there are lots of dance based games and activities, an introduction to dance forms from different cultures, and plenty of opportunities for the children to express themselves!
A story is read at the start of the session. Stickers are given out at the end of each class and a “star dancer” is selected. The star dancer is chosen for qualities such as their enthusiasm, growing confidence, interaction with others; not just their dancing skills! He or she is asked to bring their favourite book for us to read the following week
Parents and/or Carers are welcome to stay, however, qualified NVQ 3 Pre School teachers are in attendance throughout so this is not necessary.
Comfortable footwear and clothing should be worn but should your child wish to dress according to the theme of the day then so much the better.
Water is provided.
The dance club runs every Thursday from 12.15-12.45 pm at Tiddy Hall following the morning Pre-school session.
The cost of each session is £3.00. The school treasurer invoices this in advance at the beginning of each half term for the entire half term period.
