Children develop the early foundational skills in dance and become competent in creating meaningful body movement, rhythm, balance, coordination and spacial awareness. Children are exposed to different sensory experiences. Little bodies are kept active, thereby improving muscle tone and fitness.
Children interact with their peers and emerging skills in areas such as communication, cooperation, turn-taking, and patience are reinforced. Children are taught to name and convey their emotions and to recognise facial expressions and body language in others.
Music and Instruments
All activities are done to music, thereby exposing children to a large variety of songs. Children are taught to recognize that music evokes emotion and can inspire action. Children learn to use different instruments such as drums, chimes and shakers to keep a rhythm, create a beat, and follow melodies.
Children are engaged in vibrant games involving dramatic play, fostering divergent thinking and inspiring them to use their imaginations.
Children learn to learn. They are guided through instructions and encouraged to ask questions and make decisions, assisting in the development of skills in simple reasoning. Children learn to recognise cause and effect.
Learning about our world
Children are encouraged to be investigators, discovering information about themselves, their bodies, their feelings, their world and its occupants. Children are empowered to seek further exploration of topics that interest them.
Due to the current Covid-19 situation and the recommendations regarding social distancing, Mini Rockers programs have had to temporarily stopped running.
I will re-open classes as soon as it is safe to do so. I can’t wait to see all of your little rockstars again soon!
