Melody Bear Ballet

Little Bear Feet

Little Bear Feet classes are the first step in the Melody Movement dance program. In addition to movement skills, children are introduced 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 development. The non-competitive award schemes motivate, delight and inspire the young dancers as they advance from Little Bear Feet classes to the Junior Ballet levels

 Melody Movement

Melody Movement introduces children to dance and movement using the natural 
actions of the body such as running, walking, jumping, hopping, skipping and 

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 Junior Ballet

The Melody Movement Early Learning Junior Ballet syllabus teaches children the basics of ballet and dance.  In addition to simple barre and imagination centre practice ideas,  the syllabus has creative themes such as:  the Weeping Willow Fairy dance, the Magic Shawl dance Phoenix from the Fire, and the Woodland Ball with the wicked witch as our uninvited guest!
