Sunburst Group (Age 2-5) Mini Movers – Movement & Imaginary Play
20th Oct 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Sunshine and Smiles Free Mini Movers Dance Sessions!
Our Mini Movers sessions are back by popular demand with earlier classes starting from 1130 am. We understood that families were wanting to attend these sessions earlier in the year but our original slots weren’t always at appropriate times, so we’ve moved them forward to enable more to join!
Katie Aynsley, who runs the sessions, has four years’ experience of working with children, young people and adults with disabilities. She has worked towards becoming a freelance dance teacher where she has volunteered, assisted and taught various dance sessions within the community. She now works with local dance organisations Mesh Dance and Phoenix Dance theatre who provide dance within the community for children and young people with additional needs.
Structure of the session
The session is structured as follows:
Free play , circle time, hello song, name game, share a movement, warm up, travelling & musical statues, more free play, circle time with a theme, singing, movement/dance activity.
Movement / dance activity, relaxation, hammock swinging / Laying down, goodbye song.
About the sessions
Using an inclusive approach the Mini Movers Dance Sessions are created to encourage the children to explore their imagination and use their bodies through play and movement. Props, music and singing are used to promote a creative environment where the children can have fun and the sessions are made accessible to all.
Each week will have a different theme. For example; transport, animals, weather, seasonal themes likes Halloween and Christmas, and many more!
Mini Movers is a FREE session, so no need to pre book – just turn up and get ready to boogie!
