Children move naturally. They move to achieve mobility, they move to express a thought or feeling, and they move because it is joyful and feels wonderful. When their movement becomes consciously structured and is performed with awareness for its own sake, it becomes dance.
Dance is a natural method for learning and a basic form of cultural expression. Children learn movement patterns as readily as they learn language. Just as all societies create forms of visual representation or organize sounds into music, all cultures organize movement and rhythm into one or more forms of dance. In London Bridge Kids Centre we recognise that it is essential that we provide our children with the developmental benefits and unique learning opportunities that come from organizing movement into the aesthetic experience of dance.
We have incorporated dance into children daily routine, starting from earliest age and enchased cooperation with dance and ballet school providing classes every week for our for preschoolers and after school club children.
