Melody Bear dance classes specially structured
for young children ages 2 - 3yrs and 3 - 4yrs

PLUS - Little Bear Feet™ for 18 to 24 months

Melody Movement introduces children to dance and movement using the natural actions of the body such as running, walking, jumping, hopping, skipping and galloping.  It also introduces children to fundamental curriculum learning skills such as counting, colour and shape recognition, vocabulary and language skills.  The strength of the system is that learning is achieved through imaginative movement which is enjoyable and fun.

Melody Bear is the focal point of the dance classes and her songs, music, picture cards and stories integrate to create Melody Bear’s magical world of dance.

Melody Bear encourages the children with her achievement stickers!  Collect Melody Bear’s sticker cards to work for her Bronze, Silver and Gold medals.

Melody Movement® is the ideal entry into the world of ballet and dance.
