Dance Classes for Children

Trinity Laban offer Creative Dance classes for 2½ -14 year olds on Saturday mornings. Our teachers draw on your child's natural abilities, encouraging potential, nurturing inventiveness and building physical confidence as movement vocabulary develops.

Trinity Laban Children's Classes are organised in the following age groups:

Age groups

  • Carers and Toddlers: Movement and Play - For children aged 2½ years - 4 years
  • 4 - 5 years  Creative Dance  
  • 6 - 7 years  Creative Dance     
  • 8 - 9 years  Creative Dance   
  • 10 - 11 years Creative Dance
  • 12 - 14 years  Creative Dance
  • 12 - 14 years Introduction to Contemporary Dance  

The Carers and Toddlers classes are playful, practical sessions to encourage young children to express themselves with the support of their parent/carer. Through movement play, music and games, toddlers and carers have the opportunity to have fun working together to explore their physicality.

Children over the age of 4 begin to build physical co-ordination and confidence in creative classes which offer them the opportunity to create their own imaginative movement sequences and dance phrases, guided by their teachers.

Older children are introduced to the principles and foundations of contemporary dance technique. They will have the opportunity to work creatively together and, with the guidance of our teachers, devise movement work of their own.
