We believe, above all, that dancing classes should be fun. Fun is at the heart of what it means to be a child – to be free, happy and full of energy. When children are having fun in their dance class they are motivated, engage with the lesson and remember much more of the experience. When dance classes for kids are taught through fun, it doesn’t feel like a lesson – everything becomes play. When children play they are not afraid of taking risks, exploring, making mistakes and trying again.
Younger children will learn to dance with the aid of fairy dust, imaginary balloons and the occasional monster to be chased away. They will explore musical concepts and will experiment with characterisation – developing different characters to match the music. Over time, children will naturally integrate these skills into their dancing and performance.
Jingles (2.5 – 5yrs)
Our Jingles program is designed and taught by Michelle Rogers Dip. Community Services (Children’s Services), B.Ed (Early Childhood). The Jingles class gives young children a little taste of ballet, jazz and tap in a single class. As well as learning the basics of these styles, children will develop skills such as musicality and characterisation through dramatic play, musical games and using props (e.g. fairy wings, animal costumes, ribbons, magic wands).
Jingles Acrobatics (4 – 6yrs)
Jingles Acrobatics is a 30 minute class that helps young children to develop upper body strength, balance and flexibility in a safe, supportive and fun environment. Children will learn forward and backward rolls, bridges, gentle stretches as well as the foundations for handstands and cartwheels, all taught through games and creative play.
Grade 1 – Gold Star (6yrs – teens)
Bojangles Dance also offers Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Acrobatics and Contemporary dance classes for older children.
Through dancing, older children will learn the magic of how the body works – how different muscles control each and every movement that our bodies make. They will learn that, just like training a new puppy, it takes time and practice to teach these muscles to work the way you want them to and teaching your body with love and kindness is always the best approach. By integrating this knowledge into their dance technique, older children will learn to relax their muscles to improve flexibility and will develop strength and core control to keep the body safe and healthy.
