Our early years street dance group are known as Lil Rascals.
The children in this group are introduced to street dance in a fun and easy manner. Chosen music for this age range is often current songs that they are likely to have heard on the radio or on the television. Familiarity often helps to increase focus and motivation in children, therefore progress is often quicker.
Rhythm, timing and coordination are key dance skills to learn at this stage. Children in this class are taught how to count routines by either using numbers or sounds.
Choreography is created based on suitability to the students and entertainment value. Children will always to be given routines that are within their reach with challenges to ensure they are being given the tools to improve.
As well as being taught choreographed routines, basic breakdance techniques will also be taught at this early stage.
