Here at the Afonso School of Performing Arts, we believe that the love of dance can begin from a very young age, and all classes for under 5's should have the main emphasis on having fun. Each class is designed so that our young students can have the freedom to explore their own creativity, whilst learning new dance steps, or lyrics to songs. Using story-telling, instruments and props, allows a toddler to develop strength, co-ordination, balance and musicality, whilst building confidence in even the shiest of children.
Please find below examples of the classes we currently offer for pre-schoolers from as young as 18 months:
