CREATE MOVE DANCE

Createmovedance is a North Wiltshire based professional dance organisation with a primary purpose of making dance and movement accessible to individuals and groups within all areas of our community including local community groups as well as schools and other educational settings.  We currently run regular community classes at Kington Langley village hall.

Ballet classes for children: Mondays from 3.30 pm (term time only) for ages 3 upwards. Our ballet classes introduce children to the basics of ballet technique in a fun, creative and imaginative way. All classes follow our own curriculum which is developmentally appropriate. Children can enjoy the magic of ballet whilst working with trained and experienced teachers without the pressure of exams.

Floor Explorers: Fridays from 9.45 am (term time only) for ages 1 – 4 years. An opportunity for tots and pre-school children to play, move and be creative with their adults to music. Children experience and strengthen basic motor skills and self-awareness enhancing all areas of learning. The classes are fun, supportive and welcoming without having the pressure of little ones conforming to a fixed structure.
