Session 1: Mums and babies under 2cyears (2-2.20pm)

Session 2: 2 years+ (2.25-2.45pm)

Little London Ballet is a specialist pre school dance school for children aged 3 months+. We believe children learn best whilst they are having fun. Each term, our classes are themed on a different classical ballet story. We use this story to transport the children on a magical adventure, exploring ballet technique along the way. Our syllabus uses classical ballet technique to enhance and improve physical development. We use a unique mix of original and classical music to stimulate musicality, whilst with our older students we promote discussion and opinion sharing. We aim to stregthen confidence and social skills, whilst educating our little ones about classical ballet and music.

Session 1: Any age welcome (4.15 – 5.00pm)

Al’s Little Singers, run by Alexandra Lyons, is an alternative music group for pre-schoolers with live guitar, original songs, movement and a whole lotta soul.

At every group we do a welcome song and warm up, we sing some familliar nursery rhymes and get up and move around. We enjoy dancing with floaty scarves and bang and shake during a lively percussion section. You will also see a flowing river, bouncing teddies and one super powerful bubble machine.

GJHotUGG_400x400 (1)Mini Bare Bones and Bare Bones 5.00 – 5.45pm

Session 1: 2-5 years (5.00 – 5.20pm)

Session 2: 2-5 years (5.25 – 5.45pm)

At Bare Bones, our aim is to create a non-pressured, fun and creative environment allowing every member to express their individuality, boosting self-confidence and self-esteem. We have a unique approach in which we workshop all member’s ideas so that the children lead the class rather than through conventional teacher direction. This allows the children and youth to devise and create original work and encourages them to use their imagination to generate interesting drama. The emphasis is not on an end ‘polished’ product but more about the process, and our member’s unique experience both as a group and as individuals. Throughout the year our member’s work will be showcased through open workshops and an end of year production in a professional theatre space which will be completely written and devised by Bare Bones members and staff.
