Ideas for classes to take with your child in the new Autumn Term across North Leeds
As the summer holidays draw to a close, many of you will be thinking about getting back into your routines of weekly classes and activities. If you’re thinking about trying a new class this term, here are some ideas for ones across North Leeds below.
There are lots more classes listed on the website by day for baby, toddler and pre-school classes and by type of class for children 4+
Lively, exciting, funky toddler dance, movement and music classes for 18 month to 5 year olds with lots of props, flash cards, lights, bubbles and most of all fun!
The classes are devised to improve listening, self-control, gross and fine motor skills and confidence. With a different theme every half term the little ones are always kept on their toes with exciting new dances, songs, movement and creative props. We not only dance, we learn how to throw, kick, catch, jump, balance and play lots of games. Children are also encouraged to dance independently so don’t worry if they want to do their own thing!
Dancing Tots will give you the opportunity to meet other adults and children and also to enjoy precious time bonding with your little ones. Adults are encouraged to join in and often find the class just as enjoyable as the little ones. No need to exercise after a Dancing Tots workout !
Taster sessions are available on Monday’s and Friday’s. Class numbers are reduced so book ASAP!
