The language the classes are taught in is English (with Dutch as support if necessary). We use English children’s music, along with various multi-cultural children’s dance games. These classes are ideal for English-speaking children or non-English speaking children wanting to develop English language skills through play. Boys and girls both welcome!

Parents (and carers) are welcome to leave their children, to stay and watch, or to join in the dance! Classes limited to 12 children.
* Recent scientific studies show how both sides of the brain (right and left) must develop simultaneously during childhood. When children are engaged in creative movement they are developing their mental capacities, memory, communication skills and their ability for logical thinking
