Little Movers introduces young children to the fundamentals of dance and drama using stories, language and movement. This fun class with one of New Zealand's top dance educators helps children to express themselves and develops brain and motor skills...
“Movement or ‘dancing’ of young children has great meaning and value in their lives. There is a natural link between young children’s spontaneous movement expression and their ability to communicate and problem solve creatively.” – Lynch-Fraser, 1991
“Since childhood we’ve used play as a means of expression, development, and communication. When you examine it, play is a serious thing… it provides a harmony of action and spirit.” – Rudolf Laban, 1950
“Children experiment with movement in order to understand and interpret their world and explore their place in it.” – Thraves & Williamson, 1994
“It is a well-established fact that children learn best by ‘doing’. What better way of ‘doing can there be than by moving and dancing creatively?” – Thraves & Williamson, 1994
