These are achieved through the excitement of presenting and performing, exploring ways to move rhythmically, expressively and playfully.

Discussing thoughts and feelings, recognising skills and abilities, learning to move the body well.

Developing movement skills, being aware of individual and others’ needs and through observing and exploring movement being able to describe what has been learnt.

“If it were up to them, they would be doing (SIUD) every single day. When they come home from nursery after class, we turn on the music and they continue the dance party all day long!!”

Nursery parent

“It's so much fun and (the children) get so much from it. As they progress through the classes I've seen them become more confident and their coordination and balance improve, they love it.”
