WEE FOLK Sessional Dance classes

Wee Folk:  2 &3 year olds (Accompanied by a parent / caregiver)
"It is a happy talent to know how to play." - Ralph Waldo Emerson  

The 6 week session is a teacher-guided, child-inspired imaginary play with a focus on physical exploration. Using seasonal songs, stories, rhythm and rhyme, the session is a gentle reminder about the pleasure of creative play.

3 &4 year olds (Able to attend class without parent / caregiver)
"Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning." - Mr. Rogers

The 6 week session is a teacher-guided, child-inspired imaginary play with a focus on physical exploration. Using seasonal songs, storytelling, rhythm and rhyme, the session is a gentle transition for those still learning how to navigate in a bigger creative world.


CREATIVE DANCE for 3-7 year olds

As young dancers, students begin to discover the dance within themselves through exploration of their natural movement. Dancers become aware of the basic dance concepts including levels, pathways, directions, tempo, rhythm, shape, balance, and dynamics. The dancers will build their movement vocabulary whilst developing an understanding of body alignment and awareness. Various dance styles are explored in the context of stories, composition, rhythm, music, and art.

FadaDance’s creative dance program is designed for young dancers 3-7 years in age.  Our dance year begins in mid-September and runs until the end of May.  Our 3 year old classes run until the end of April.


DANCE 3 & 3B
Children develop skills of body awareness, loco-motor movement, cooperating with others, and following directions. The material is presented in a fun-filled constructive atmosphere.

These classes will begin in Mid-September and run until the end of April.  The class culminates in a dance share where young dancers and parents will take part in a collaborative dance experience and dancers will share some of their work with a small audience.

Dance 3 & Dance 3B will NOT be in the year end show.

(Please note that children must be toilet trained to enter these classes.)


DANCE 4 & 4B
Children develop skills of body awareness, loco-motor movement, cooperating with others, and following directions. The material is presented in a fun-filled constructive atmosphere.

Our Dance 4 & Dance 4B classes will be the first year that students take their creative dance exploration to the stage for a final performance at the end of May.


DANCE 5, 5B, 6, 6B, 7, 7B, & 7C
Children continue to discover, experiment and solve movement problems while increasing a deeper understanding of themselves as dancers. Children will explore creating dances and combining movements. These classes develop basic dance concepts and increase skills through autonomous and collective dance.


BOYS DANCE 6-7
These classes offer an environment conducive to young boys and their unique style of moving. High in energy and drawing from boy's interests we explore movement that provides adventurous experiences in dance.
