Programmed by Siobhan Davies Studios.


These fun and stimulating sessions are designed for little ones and their parent/carer to discover a love for dance together. Through collaboration, visual cues and repetition, our specialist teacher Cheryl McChesney will guide the group to create playful and imaginative movement each week.

  • Body Awareness; practicing control and coordination of the body to support physical confidence
