A new modern dance class for tiny tots has launched in Brisbane, offering a real dance party vibe for preschoolers and their carers.
Created by a qualified and experienced teacher and mum of two, Caron thanks her three-year-old son for the inspiration in building Lil’ Party Rockers.
“Every day is a dance party in our house,” says Caron. “My son loves dancing to all sorts of music from the Wiggles to Calvin Harris.”
After searching for a similar class for her son to join, she realised most dance classes for under five-year-olds were predominantly ballet based. Her goal was to create a space where children could dance freely and confidently in a less structured environment and to music that even the parents would love. They even take song requests!
In each lesson, children warm up, play dance games and learn basic choreography. And each lesson finishes with a dance party to your little one’s favourite tune, all under the colourful party lights.
“There is a big focus on the use of props and objects, and these classes develop a child’s sense of teamwork and responsibility,” says Caron. “But above all, the children really build their self-confidence as they feel comfortable to ‘dance like no one’s watching’.”
Lil’ Party Rockers offers weekly classes on Monday, Tuesday and Saturday mornings in Hawthorne and Morningside. The classes are aimed at tiny tots ages 1 – 5 years old. They also offer a mixed-age dance class.
