Toddler dance classes
My daughter is nearly two-and-a-half and I would love to take her to dance classes. Music is an integral part of household – metal, 80s and classical are what we dote on, and my sweet one loves to jam up a storm.
We have ‘dance parties’ for two, sometimes three (me and her, and sometimes dad) but I think it’s be amazing for Amelia to party up a storm with kids her own age at toddler dance classes – even if it is to pop music! I am all for musical indoctrination but my daughter probably needs to increase her repertoire so that she can develop her own ‘taste in tune’.
Google spat out some cool options for ‘toddler dance classes’ but my favourite so far is one called Diddi Dance.
I haven’t been to a session yet but I definitely plan to take my daughter soon – you can even call your local Diddi and book a free trial!
Diddi Dance uses dancing games and exercises, bells, hoops and dance ribbons to improve rhythm and co-ordination but also social and gross motor skills. Children are encouraged to nurture their natural love of movement in a structured yet relaxed 45 minute class.
Classes, ideally suited for both boys and girls between the ages of 2 and 4, explore different dance styles every half term, from salsa and hip hop to country and disco.
And it’s not just some random dancing fiasco; the toddler dance classes were devised and started by Anne-Marie Wilkins, a professional dancer with over 10 years teaching experience.
Sounds good, right!? I’ll be sure to report back.
