Ready Set Dance is an innovative program designed specifically to introduce young children to the world of dance. In each class teachers explore aspects of the Ready Set Dance curriculum through playful approaches which are responsive to the curiosity and imagination of young learners.
The children respond with active and joyful engagement and participation that enables them to practice and refine the skills and capacities needed for dance. At the same time the children are extended across the various developmental domains of physical, cognitive, language and social development and use learning processes such as attending, remembering and problem solving.
Through regular and sustained participation in Ready Set Dance classes children develop positive dispositions to learning such as enthusiasm, independence, concentration, persistence, co-operation and the three C’ so Confidence, Coordination, and Creativity.
Ready Set Dance offers much to support the play and learning of young children in Australia and beyond.
READY SET DANCE is a one hour combo class of JAZZ, TAP, HIP HOP, SINGING and MUSIC.
Designed for both boys and girls, the program focuses on teaching the fundamentals of dance while developing confidence, coordination and creativity in a professional and safe environment.
JAZZ – Develop muscle strength, control and balance and achieve coordination milestones like skipping before going to school.
HIP HOP – Bust out some ice cold moves just like FREEZE to our original hip hop tracks.
MUSIC – Develop the musical ear, dynamics and tempo while having fun with instruments and the parachute.
SINGING – Sing like TWIRL and build confidence singing on the microphone
TAP – Learn the fundamentals of tap in a playful and creative way splashing in puddles and shuffling like a penguin.
All these ingredients together create a super hour of fun!
The program is developed with original music with lyric cues and focuses on three key components: Stretch, Strength, and Skills.
STRETCH: Enhance flexibility and expand the range of motion in all major muscle groups.
STRENGTH: Young learners engage in a variety of exercises designed to promote physical strength and control.
