Pre-School Dance Classes

At Stepping Out Studios, we offer preschool dance classes for children 18 months and older. We use the Melody Movement Early Learning syllabus which targets the specific needs of little ones as young as 18 months old and focuses on discovering and fulfilling the potential of each child in our programme. The syllabus gives our dance instructors the tools needed to provide our students with an effective and enjoyable class by nurturing their creative development in music through movement, ballet, and tap dancing. 

Each of our three preschool dance classes focuses on building on each other to help each student grow in dance from where they are now. These classes provide the foundation of dance and movement for our Kids Dance Classes for elementary students.

Little Bear Feet is the first step in the Melody Movement syllabus and is for children 18-24 months. This is the perfect way to introduce children to dance and movement. We focus on helping children find their love of singing and dancing with Melody Bear with nursery rhymes. Your little one is sure to enjoy these fun-filled classes while slowly being introduced to the world of dance.

Our Preschool Dance Class is for children ages 2-4 years old and is the perfect programme for children to learn dance through natural body movements, such as walking, running, jumping, and skipping. As they are naturally learning these movements in everyday life, we use these actions to help them explore different dance steps and movements. We also have a fun sticker programme that allows children to earn an award and is just one more fun way to learn dance steps with Melody Bear.

Little Stars is our final preschool dance class for 4-5 year olds before students age into our Kids Dance Classes. These classes prepare children for the transition to CSTD grade classes and offer a choice of learning a mix of jazz and tap or ballet and jazz. This final preschool dance class is where the real learning and fun begins and where many of our students find their passion and love for dance.

My girl has been attending Melody Bear classes (graded). The class teaches her simple movements and also helps her to widen her vocabulary as she could understand Teacher May's instructions in terms of moving her hands and legs, and moving around in class... Melody Bear class is also good in preparing children for ballet.
