Age Range: 2.5 - 4
The Baby Boppers class introduces the structure of a dance class in a fun and imaginative way. Again, there is a strong emphasis on rhythm and moving to the beat. Exercises are often linked with shapes, colours or numbers, to enhance cognitive awareness and learning landmarks outlined in the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stages) guidelines. Children learn to follow instruction and develop gross motor skills further, such as walking and running at different speeds, galloping, jumping etc. Children submerge themselves in their imaginations in the storytime section and groove out in the Tot Bop Boogie, where even the grown ups get up and dance! The structure of the class is as follows;
• Centre exercise; working on a core movement skills (such as direction, jumping etc)
• Travelling steps
• Music section (included in 45 min classes only)
• Storytime section (narrative, imaginative sequence set to music)
• Tot Bop Boogie!
