Mini Sensory Movers
This session is a fun, relaxed movement club where the children explore different types of music and props such as ribbons, shakey eggs and of course the parachute! Mini Sensory Movers is a space where dancers can unapologetically be themselves without judgement! The playlist and props stay the same for each half-term’s theme and each song has an accompanying prop. Expect high energy, freedom, a chance for parent/carers to make friends and a whole heap of fun!
5:00 -5:45 PM
This movement-based group will use a mix of different music - from different genres and with different emotions. Each piece of music will have movement that we engage in and involve a sensory element. Some tracks have a set routine that everyone will be encouraged to copy and follow, others will be freer so the dancers can improvise and enjoy moving and dancing in their own individual ways! All abilities are welcomed, without judgement in this fun, sensory session!
Parents/carers are asked to remain with their child for these sessions.
