The Melody Movement Early learning class is unique. It addresses the needs of children aged 18 months upwards, and is tailored to discovering and fulfilling the potential of each child and nurturing their creative development.   Our present courses are designed for children of 2 years and above.

Loveable Melody Bear, is the focal point of the early years curriculum, and all her activities, stories, ideas and dreams can be told through dance and movement.  Classes are specifically stuctured to enhance and develop the learning experience of each child, thus ensuring a successful transition from one stage to the next.  The Melody Bear journey ends at the Foundation Ballet level as they graduate and continue their exciting and magical journey progressing to Junior Ballet and Royal Academy Grades.

Melody Movement introduces children to dance and movement using the natural actions of the body such as running, walking, jumping, hopping, skipping and galloping.  It is structured to aid children’s physical development, coordination, spatial awareness, sensory development,  creativity and self-expression, working individually, with a partner, or as a group.  


Melody Movement also introduces children to other fundamental curriculum learning skills such as counting, colour and shape recognition, vocabulary and language skills.  The strength of the system is that learning is achieved through imaginative movement which is enjoyable and fun.  Melody Movement provides every child with the opportunity to discover and fulfil their own potential whilst nurturing creative

Themed Classes and Awards Days

We encourage class participation and development and progression with the use of themed classes and “sticker” collection.

We find that children becoming more actively involved when there are “stickers” to collect showing off their skills and progression.

Themed classes are a real hit with our baby classes.  We run different themed classes and dance as Unicorns, fairy’s butterflies etc. Acting out lots of enchanted magical tales and stretching your child’s imagination through the art of dance.
