Children will learn basic body and dance moves that will see them hopping, turning and moving with confidence and style. They are introduced to movements through urban dance and are required to showcase a choreographed dance for a show and tell.
Children are introduced to two music instruments – guitar and keyboard. They will learn basic skills and notation of these instruments as well as simple note-reading, rhythms and beats. The children will also learn how to perform for a show and tell.
Children discover the magic of theatre which allows their imagination to take flight and come to life. They will learn how to create tableaux where they use their bodies frozen in various positions to tell stories. They will also be introduced to stage terms and scripting. This is an ideal beginner’s programme for dramatic theatre exploration and it culminates in a mini performance for a show and tell.
