It is a unique dance curriculum, written by Jill Bridger, which addresses the needs of children from 18 months upwards. It is tailored to discovering and fulfilling the potential of each child, nurturing their creative development and developing a happy class where dreams and stories come to life through dance. The class is based around the lovable teddy, Melody Bear. Each week students at our children’s dance classes in Derbyshire will be rewarded with a sticker for their Award Chart and once completed will receive medals.

Cheer has become popular due to recent children’s television programmes. It is classed as a sport and helps children not only gain strength but helps build trust and confidence within groups. As teams improve, there are opportunities to compete in competitions around the UK.
A large part of Cheerleading is the tumbling section of the sport. Children can learn and improve their strength and be safely taught gymnastic tricks.
