This class ran at BDA from 2011-2013. Due to timetabling issues we were unable to run this class for the last 3 years. In 2017 we’re excited to announce that Little One, Big One is back!
This class is for children aged 1.5 – 3 years who start to wriggle, jump or clap when ever they hear music. These young dancers and their ‘big one’ whether that be mum, dad, grandma, or a babysitter, will learn the basics of dance in a friendly and creative environment. Having their ‘big one’ there gives these young dancers the extra sense of security and confidence they require.
Skills such as rhythm, balance, musicality, coordination, as well as gross and fine motor skills will be built during these classes. Using props, musical instruments, imagery, and songs, our ‘little ones’ will also be introduced to basic ballet and jazz steps.
Little One, Big One is the perfect platform for self expression of young dancers and a great stepping stone into our Kinder Ballet or Kinder Jazz classes they can join when they are 3 years of age.
“Little One, Big One was a lovely opportunity to spend cherished moments dancing with my daughter. It also helped to foster a love of dance which has not only given her a lot of joy over the years but also pride and confidence.” Simone – original member of Little One, Big One.
Simone’s daughter Chloe is still dancing 5 years on and undertook her first set of dance exams this year in ballet and jazz!
